In people living with HIV, the diarrhea and nausea are often much worse and more difficult to treat. In addition, these illnesses are also more likely to cause serious problems in people with HIV, such as bloodstream infections and meningitis. People with HIV also have a harder time recovering fully from these illnesses.
If you have any of these symptoms, especially if you have traveled recently, contact your HIV specialist.
