Chronic pain is a frequent comorbidity in people living with HIV, with a 2014 systematic review finding a 54 percent point prevalence. Causes of pain vary from the direct effect of HIV-induced peripheral neuropathy, neuropathic pain secondary to chronic inflammation, opportunistic infection and adverse effects from exposure to antiretroviral therapy.
