Ustas and scared.

I have the same symtoms as you guys. I've tested positive for H-pylori but I never retested because they wanted me to poop in a container and bring it back to the clinic. I was to disgusted to do it.. I nevever tested for mycoplasma becuase my dr said I didn't have it..

PLEASE USTAS AND SCARED LETS TesT FOR STAPH INFECTION AND OVERGROWTH OF FUNGUS (PARASITES) WHICH HAVE WORM SHAPED. PLEASE WE HAVE THE SYMTOMS. I WILL TRY TO GET TESTED I HOPE MY DR ALLOWS ME TO TAKE TESTS.

IM ALMOST CERTAIN ITS PARASITE OVERGROTWH. COME ON WE KNOW OUR DIGESTIVE TRACT IS NOT RIGHT. THROAT, STOMACH AND BLADDER. AND SKIN. SORE , SENSITIVE MUSCLES AND ACHEY JOINTS. MAJOR SYMPTOMS. I've GAINED 30LBS AND I CANT LOSE WEIGHT! I SEEN ON GOOGLE PEAPLE WITH THAT PROBLEM COMMENT THEY WERE PARASITE , WORMS, AND WITH MEDICATION THEY FELT NORMAL AGAIN,

Depressed, you mentioned staph Infection.. My grandmother has been dealing with fatigue and skin problems as well as weak legs. She has been to numerous docs and they diagnosed her with staph infection a while ago. She was also on vitamin b12 injections. Could this be my issue?

No, i have not yet retested to see if the drugs helped. I had asked for a second test, but the doctor said it wouldn't be necessary.

Whoknows.

I don't knows all your symptoms but her symptoms match mine.. its worth a try. Gotta check all possibilities..

GOOGLE .. "Rare Stds" and they will mention "staph infection (Mrsa) also "Mycoplasma" and Fungal infection s which means worms and parasites.

Please go and read about them.. and it sounds very possible.

D-Man, Ustas,

You guys really need to get retested for it to make sure the treatment worked. H Pylori can cause alot of problems if it is not cleared from the body. It's also a risk factor for certain types of cancers after prolong infection. Get tested just to be sure that way you can rule it out.

From a study called:
Lack of Viral Latency of Human T-Cell Lymphotropic Virus Type I

Human T-cell lymphotropic virus Type I (HTLV-I) is the etiologic agent of adult T-cell leukemia and a chronic neurologic syndrome. The only known modes of transmission of this virus are from mother to child, predominantly through breast milk, and horizontal transmission through sexual intercourse, blood transfusion, and intravenous drug use.1 Approximately 20 percent of children of seropositive mothers seroconvert, generally between 12 and 24 months of age.2 Thereafter, the seroprevalence rate in children does not change until the teenage years, after which it increases steadily.3 One explanation for this age-related increase in prevalence is that children born to seropositive mothers may be infected early in life through breast milk but fail to seroconvert until decades later. Until recently, the identification of HTLV-I infection was based on the detection of viral-specific antibody. The polymerase-chain-reaction (PCR) technique, by greatly amplifying specific sections of the integrated proviral genome, allows the detection of low levels of infection even in the absence of an antibody response. Using this technique, Saito studied 21 HTLV-I—seronegative offspring of seropositive Japanese mothers and found 5 who were positive by PCR, but no seronegative, PCR-positive persons were found in another group of Japanese children.4 , 5 We used the PCR technique to study this phenomenon in Jamaica, a country in which HTLV-I is endemic.

We identified 19 HTLV-I—seropositive mothers and obtained samples of blood treated with heparin (3 to 5 ml) from 32 HTLV-I—seronegative and 9 HTLV-I—seropositive children of these mothers. Twelve of the seronegative children had an HTLV-I—seropositive sibling and were considered at higher risk of infection, whereas the remaining 20 either were only children or had no seropositive sibling. To serve as negative controls, blood samples from five seronegative children of seronegative mothers were obtained. The children were between 5 and 13 years of age. Plasma samples were tested for HTLV-I antibody by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, and the results were confirmed by HTLV-I Western blotting. PCR was performed on cryopreserved lymphocytes by a nested amplification technique, with an HTLV-I PX/TAX primer pair previously shown to detect 1 HTLV-I—infected cell in 100,000 uninfected cells (unpublished data).

All 32 seronegative children of seropositive mothers were negative by PCR, as were the 5 negative controls, whereas all 9 seropositive children were also positive by PCR (Table 1
Table 1

Results of Tests for HTLV-I with the Polymerase Chain Reaction in 46 Jamaican Children, According to HTLV-I Serologic Status.
). Thus, we found no evidence of latent HTLV-I infection in this population at high risk of maternal transmission, although we could have missed infections characterized by levels of proviral HTLV-I DNA below the sensitivity of the PCR.

Our results indicate that latent HTLV-I infection probably does not occur as part of mother-to-child transmission and that the observed age-related increase in HTLV-I seroprevalence is probably due to new sexually acquired infections or to a declining incidence of infection in more recent birth cohorts.

Scared,

Yes, it is attacking the our livers - I have liver pain on a regular basis, in the beginning it was so bad that I couldn't sleep on my side (just like you).

Best wishes.

It's amazes me every day that in countries like Jamaica where HTLV is a problem the population was not educated about HTLV.

II hve not felt any liver pain that I know of and haven't noticed pain whilst laying down. I have noticed slight ear ringing lately...

My rheumatologist is referring me to an immunologist... All tests were normal and he said that's all he can really do..

Today I got the bill for the hematologist who refused to do anything for me (not even testing), and I was furious that this guy expects me to pay him $115 for doing nothing for me. I am not going to pay him.

Best wishes.

I payed 110 for a follow up with my specialist who pretty much said nothing... And refer me to immunologist...

I don't know what other tests they can do.. Hopefully the immunologist who is a professor can help..
