I have ears ringing & eye floaters - both are signs of immune suppression.

Best wishes.

The pain is killing me
I am in terrible pain today, my whole body hurts. I don't know why doctors don't want to help us with this disease, it's so horrible.

Best wishes.

Tony,

I know this may sound dumb, but I really don't know. What exactly is "eye floaters"?

Eye floaters
Scared,

Not a dumb question - eye floaters are when the clear fluid of the eye contains bacteria, which are visible in the patient's field of vision the same way you'd see them under a microscope.

Best wishes.

For all of you concerned about H. pylori infections
Human T-lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV-I) is the causative agent in adult T-cell leukemia and HTLV-I associated myelopathy. Some other diseases such as uveitis, chronic thyroiditis, Sjgren syndrome, arthritis, acute myeloid leukemia and myelodysplastic syndrome may be also associated with HTLV-I. Several case reports have suggested the possible combination of idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) and HTLV-I infection. In these studies and from our current report, we found 17 patients (22.1%) with HTLV-I infection among 77 ITP patients. The prevalence of HTLV-I infection among ITP patients was higher than that of healthy volunteers (5 approximately 10%). The ITP patients with HTLV-I infection were older than the patients without HTLV-I infection, and the ITP patients with HTLV-I infection had poor response to prednisolone therapy. Among 17 ITP patients with HTLV-I infection, 9 patients received prednisolone therapy. Although most patients had transient increase of platelet counts, only two of them had partial responses (PR) at the last observation date. Five patients underwent splenectomy, and four of them had complete responses (CR) and the remaining patient had a (PR). Four patients received eradication of Helicobactor pylori (H. pylori) infection, and all patients had CRs. Therefore, the ITP patients with HTLV-I infection should receive eradication therapy in the case of H. pylori infection as the first step of therapy and the splenectomy should be considered, if there is no response to conventional therapy. Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) causes thrombocytopenia in 10% of patients with active HIV disease. The etiologies of HIV thrombocytopenia are considered as follows, the escalated destruction of platelets by the immune system, damage to megakaryocytes by HIV infection and the inhibition of thrombopoiesis by some anti-viral drugs. In the case of ITP patients with HTLV-I infection, the main etiology may be the increased destruction of platelets by immune system. The proviral load and the integration pattern of HTLV-I should be examined to clarify the stage of HTLV-I infection. The possibility of infection of the megakaryocytes by HTLV-I should be also examined for etiological approach.

Hey guys.

Is anyone experiencing dark eyelids, the skin around their eyes darker than their skin color? Man mine are really noticible when my skin is pale like when I haven't been in the sun for a while. It's not as bad if I get some sun on my face, but man I don't look healthy at all. I've also noticed it on my wife as well, but when I look at other people theirs aren't like that. Is anyone else having this problem?

Hi everyone,

Glad to see that all of you guys are still alive! And I'm too!

I had H.pylori eradication therapy, and all symptoms are gone (acid in my mouth, evacuation problem,
stinking stools & etc) but I didn't have confirmation blood/stools tests. I have no any problem with my stomach last several months.

Hey Guys
Whatever is bugging us will be dianosed one day. I'm just waiting on the right time to find out. Not that i have given up but I'm tied of making these doctors richer. If they can't help us, then why are we going to them.

We are not stupid or out of our right minds to say something is wrong with ourselves and spending these huge sums of money for no reason. Only if they were in our shoes.

Guys, continue to be positive in your doings.
