A:   Welcome to Ask The Doctor.

We are here to help you on this medical health advice platform.
This can be due to neurological complications of HIV. In late stages of HIV, the infection spreads to brain and can involve neurons causing these migraine headaches as well as these other symptoms.
You should get a MRI Brain and CSF examination to rule out any evidence of Toxoplasmosis.
Seek your HIV specialist and share my opinion.

I hope it helps.
Stay Healthy
