Goose, WK,

Yesterday I contacted my local pharmacist to ask about the availability of Prosultiamine - he looked around but couldn't find any suppliers in the USA. I looked on Drugs dot com and saw that all of the manufacturers of it are in Taiwan (except for one in Japan) - see below. Since I can't order it through my local pharmacist, the next step is to try to contact the manufacturers directly. If any of you are successful in doing so, please remember that the pilot study used 300mg dosing per day, so if you're lucky enough to order Prosultiamine, make sure that you're getting at least that much dosing per day. In the test study, patients on the 300mg per day dosing experienced less severe symptoms. I know that this can help us, not only because it has been tested on people who are suffering, but also because it is SAFE and CHEAP. I'm sure none of us on this forum are rich, and none of us want to take a drug with dangerous side effects.

As a counter example, I previously endorsed Xeljanz because it was shown to lessen symptoms, but its cost is high (24k per year), and the side effects are dangerous: liver damage, problems with increased lipid blood levels, certain cancers, and gastro-intestinal perforations. By contrast, Prosultiamine is cheap and safe, it's a vitamin B derivative. If any of you 'score' some of this great medication, please let the rest of us know.

Best wishes.

Feng. How do you know you don't have HIV? I test negative but the symptoms are too real to be anything else. You don't get this many symptoms coincidentally. Doctors say anything can cause fatigue. Anything can cause blurred vision. What they won't understand is when you put the many symptoms together, it can only be one thing. With each additional symptom, the odds get greater and greater to a point where it's undeniable. That's what I'm dealing with. It's not HTLV - the symptoms aren't even close to being the same - that's nuts

Then what is it? I don't have HTLV symptoms. Only HIV symptoms. How can it not be what all the symptoms point to? Why can't it be a new strain? Every strain is new in the beginning. And many, many people can be testing negative for years meaning possibly many thousands of people could have this new strain and if they have it early might not even realize their symptoms yet. Might get a fever or an infection. Mild early symptoms. But they test negative and are gleeful. But when the later symptoms start kicking in they will all be worried. I see no reason why this scenario can't be very possible.

No, your symptoms are not HIV, they're HTLV. If you want to disprove that it's HIV, show me your T-cell count - if it's not low, you don't have HIV. If it's normal to high, it's HTLV. It's that simple.

TRW,

I don't know why you can't understand something as simple as your CD4 counts going DOWN when infected with HIV, but your CD4 count is NOT LOW, so you don't have HIV - that's how that proves anything. I hope that you aren't as dense as you sound, but either way snap out of it man!

Meanwhile, you're complaining about neurological symptoms, which HTLV causes. So what part of this aren't you getting? That you don't have HIV, or that you might have HTLV?

Yes, 1200 proves that you don't have HIV. Your CD4 counts would be dropping, instead they're going up - those are two big hints that:

1. You do not have HIV.
2. You might have HTLV.

As a comparison, when I was at my sickest, my count was 1100.

Thanks for asking the right question. So far I've found three drugs that work against HTLV:

1. Prosultiamine - cheap and safe, but only sold in Taiwan and Japan. 300mg daily dosage shown to alleviate symptoms and lower viral load in Japanese patients.

2. Azacytidine - expensive, but shown to cure a patient in Greece.

3. TAF - a reformulated version of TDF, shown effective against Hepatitis-B and HIV. Pricing has not been set yet.

Thanks again for asking - so many people here want to talk about problems, but we should be talking about solutions.

My symptoms. Please give your opinion(s). Thanks

April 3, 2013 I had by far the worst headache I ever had (excruciating forehead pain for about 5 minutes).
Since then Ive been experiencing:
* Significant memory problems, confusion, difficulty concentrating, irritability - affects my work drastically. I have to concentrate real hard to understand things. I write more and speak less so I can rewrite to make more sense (what Im doing with this document actually)
* Forearms and wrists painfully tingle (actually burn) for no reason
* Jaw stiffness
* Significant receding gums (actually started a couple months prior) - gums scores were improving every checkup to a point where I no longer had gingivitis - nothing changed and now they are worse than ever when it comes to receding.
* Slurred speech - never had this problem before
* Headaches often - never issue before
* Ears always ringing - never a problem before
* Change in how I walk during increased stress
* Feeling feverish but without a temperature
* Clumsiness - always dropping things
* Significant dizziness when standing up - never an issue at all before
* Getting out of breath easy even when taking asthma medicine - not a problem before
* Fatigue is constant unless I sleep almost twice as long as I used to (was 6hrs now 10 or more)
* Significant blurred vision but dont need glasses (had eyes checked recently because of this)
* Difficulty swallowing
* Softer than usual stools for past 3 months
* I was always the one that was warm (no coat in winter) but now Im always chilly
* Blood test says I have HSV1 and HSV2 - people with this are at higher risk of other STDs.

Well if you want to hear people's stories, symptoms and how they tested positive for htlv look up "HTLV Registry" on Facebook there are a few real life examples of what type of symptoms htlv could cause.

But then there are those that have all the symptoms and we are being called crazy, delusional, etc.. because of negative tests. When HIV was discovered it was new.

You are saying a new strain of HIV2 was found in Cameroon, they came across this new strain because they want to prevent new HIV epidemics from emerging especially in more developed countries. I'm sure they have tried to find signs of this new strain in the general population and high risk groups in other countries including the U.S. with no signs of the virus.
This is yet another example of how HIV surveillance is reliable.

not hiv at all. this has been ruled out by many experts in china. as i mentioned earlier, the chance of that is caused by virus is also slim because the blood test from columbia university reveals no virus DNA.

the malaria pill you taken may explains everything - it might be a new strain of parasite which hides in your monocyte, wbc, etc. Now your moncyte is nil might be due to immune attack on these monocytes which are hiding the pathogen.

I bet that your monocyte will come back very soon.

DW,

For three decades, doctors wouldn't test for HIV because the patient didn't fit the epidemiology, and the patient would get sicker & sicker, and then not until the patient was near death would the doctor finally test for HIV & then realize that the patient had HIV all along. That changed last year, now doctors routinely test for HIV because they accepted after 30 years of ignorance that ANYONE can get it. Doctor Susan Little proves this daily as she drives a van around southern California testing people randomly on the street. Now the same is happening with HTLV, here on this forum we have a diverse group of people from all over the USA and the world who are all sick, and the doctors won't even discuss HTLV, never mind treat it. Will it take another 30 years for HTLV to be recognized as a global health problem and be tested for regularly? Perhaps. Meanwhile we are screwed unless we can change the world.

The topical antifungal agent Ciclopirox eradicates HIV by promoting infected cells to effectively commit suicide, and it does not lead to viral rebound after the therapy is stopped, according to U.S. News and World Report. Reporting their findings in PLOS ONE, researchers studied how, in a laboratory setting, Ciclopirox affected HIV-infected H9 cells and peripheral blood mononuclear cells infected with clinical HIV isolates.

One of the reasons HIV manages to endure in the body even in the face of antiretroviral (ARV) therapy is because the virus blocks cells’ natural mechanism for instigating their own demise in the event they are damaged or infected. The scientists found that Ciclopirox fought the virus by inhibiting the expression of certain HIV genes and also interfering with the cells’ mitochondria, undoing HIV’s inhibition of the suicide mechanism.

Uninfected cells were not affected by the treatment. Also, once Ciclopirox was terminated, the virus did not rebound as it would after stopping ordinary ARVs.

Thanks - she doesn't know when she got it, but I know exactly who, when, and where I got it. She was seeing this Puerto Rican guy who was complaining that his liver hurt, just like mine. Coincidentally I caught it from a Puerto Rican too.

Best wishes.

DW,

That's a silly question - no one's even heard of HTLV, so it's impossible for anyone to think it's HTLV. If it wasn't for me mentioning it, none of you would have heard of it neither. I will be waiting for my letter of commendation from each of you lol.

Best wishes.

Tony,

I knew of HTLV before i came across you.
I found out about htlv after my risk exposure when i started reading about blood donation tests on the FDA donors guidelines.

I asked because i assumed you have shared your knowledge of HTLV with your sister. It seems to me you haven't talked to her about HTLV.

My brother had an EX-girlfriend who was a prostitute and i told him about HTLV and I paid for him to be tested for HTLV two years after exposure and needless to say he also tested for HIV, Hep, and bacterial infections, the only test that came back positive for him was chlamidya.

He says he is not going to have unprotected sex anymore and be more careful from now on, he said he feels fine and is not worrying about HTLV even after understanding the route of transmission and the types of disease it causes. He definitely put it behind him. I wish i could put it behind me like he did.

My question to you should not have been interpreted as silly.

It's still silly, since you had to tell others to get tested for HTLV, that's not your job, that's the job of a doctor. Since HTLV testing is not part of the standard STD panel, you're not stepping back and looking at the big picture that someone like you who is not a doctor stumbled across something in the FDA blood donor guidelines and now is telling people about it. That's as silly as it gets.

Best wishes.

Tony,

It is beyond silly that doctors are not recommending htlv testing in std clinics.
Nonetheless you should have told your sister about htlv, maybe she would have thought twice of having sex with the Puerto Rican guy.

Unfortanitely our system is not going to advise the general public about htlv as they do with other STDs anytime soon, and if the only thing within my reach is telling people myself, I'm going to try my best. All of my family and close friends now know what htlv is. And few have tested for HTLV themselves now.

I just thought that you had explained to your sister what HTLV is.

DW,

Certainly if all of us could go back in time and undo what we did to get where we are now, we would have done so already. The blame has to be placed on the public health system for not warning people about this disease, instead of saying that it's peoples' fault for having sex - that's like saying people should die from food infections because they ate food. Just like it's human nature to eat, it's human nature to have sex. None of us were properly warned about this, and even now the disease is still not receiving the recognition it deserves. While you telling your family & friends helps a little, something needs to get done worldwide.

Best wishes.

I'm guessing you are not going to tell you're sister about HTLV.
Either way it's not for sure your sister has htlv, and on top of that i hope everything goes good is all i could really say.

DW,

Thanks - telling people about HTLV doesn't help because no one believes us, and then the same people will go to a doctor and they'll laugh it off. So what's the point?

Best wishes.

PS: I got a call from a billing agency for the doctor who threw me out of his office and refused to test me for anything, I told the billing lady what happened and told her that's why I'm not paying his bill.

That doctor should not be getting paid at least not for your visit.
I hope they don't make you pay for that.

That doctor doesn't deserve to be paid for your visit and by the sound of it he shouldn't even be paid to be a doctor.
I hope they don't make you pay for that.
