I just wanted to say THANK YOU for posting this - other sites like this do not even allow the mention of HTLV, never mind testing for it. I have been suffering with similar symptoms for seven months, initially going through the odyssey of HIV testing. Doctors are completely ignorant about HTLV and testing for it, I even had to suggest testing myself for it. For some reason, HTLV has been swept under the rug and completely forgotten by the medical industry. Even when it's recognized, it's sugarcoated as an asymptomatic, rarely fatal illness, not the miserable illness that you've described. I've started online petitions for recognition of HTLV as a public health issue, and also for clinical trials of Azacytidine to treat and possibly cure HTLV, as was done with a patient in Greece. Best wishes to you and thanks for being brave enough to come forward with this, so the rest of us can stop thinking that we are crazy for not feeling well.
