Thanks for posting on HCM,
Well given that you are a HIV positive patient, it is possible to look at various angles when it comes to a severe left-sided pain (guessing that you are talking about your upper trunk area) plus hyperhidrosis
. So saying, we could be looking if you are having tuberculosis
or atypical pneumonia
etc. Your doctor is better placed to run a thorough physical exams and laboratory tests including a chest x-ray in order to be able to determine the actual cause.
You absolutely need to visit a doctor especially as you are already HIV positive as certain facts can only be seen by your doctor at his office as we start trying to figure out the possible causes of your left-sided chest pain
, we might not be able to go through all the list. My suggestion is to see a primary care
doctor, then the rest will follow (i.e appropriate treatment).
Hope this helps
