I can only answer from an Audiologist's point of view.  The virus itself can have negative influence on the hearing system and or the anti viral treatment could also affect your hearing sensitivity. About behaviour? I think the question should be directed to an psychologist

Being a member of the ones afflicted with the malady I can say that it affects the behavior of oneself with the perceived negative outlook of others to you. yes, the antiretrovirals do have an effect on the hearing, but your overall behavior changes make you more withdrawn, more inward looking. I hope for the better.
