Lay summary

We know that pain and poor sleep quality tend to go hand-in-hand, but the association between the two has not previously been investigated in people with HIV.  We asked POPPY participants to describe the parts of their body where they were currently feeling pain by shading the areas on a picture of the body.  Using this information, we grouped people into those with no pain, those with pain at only a few body sites, and those with widespread pain.
