Stealth Viruses? READ IF YOU ARE WORRIED ABOUT POSSIBLE INFECTION
Scientests now agree in the existence of Stealth viruses, but most doctors have little understanding(or even know these exist) of the effects of these viruses on persons system,or ways to treat them. these viruses elude conventional means of detection because they dont produce the antibody inflammatory responce normal illnesses do ie..... (they go undetected by the body and normal blood tests) this however doesnt stop these viruses from producing symptoms in a person - Chronic fatigue syndrome, Gulfwar syndrome, Fibromalgya, even cancer. The methods to detect these viruses are complex and expensive, and the few treatments are antivirals, and thinning the blood so the body can detect them(these viruses hide in blood clotting). Most of these viruses are members of the Herpes virus family, Ebstein barr, enteroviruses(chicken pox), and several others.
For anyone who belives that because of their symptoms has an HIV infection yet still shows negative outside the window period, and these strange symptoms persist after the window period, or become chronic, you may be infected with a stealth virus, Some scientests speculate some of these Stealth viruses can be sexual transmitted, so if your tests do not show Mono, Herpes,HIV, or any other known STD, yet you still have strange symptoms(swollen lympnodes, chills, nightsweats, rashes, mental fog, runny nose, fatigue) that persist, you could be suffering from a primary infection of a stealth virus, what this means is that you body will adjust and these symptoms may go away, It is strange that some one on this board mentioned something similar a few weeks ago, he said something along the lines of thinking that sometimes we can exchange organisms that disrupt the body, he was right in a way
This take this with a grain of salt however, I have just mentioned this as a possiblitly to explain some of the stranger symptoms mentioned by people on the board, Flu, and colds can cause similar symptoms, and taking advile , or the other over the counter remidies will prolong your flu or cold, these only aliviate the symptoms, thyroid problems will also cause similar symptoms although thyroid problems have been linked with stealth viruses, this is also not an excuse to not get tested, go get tested, but if you still have problems and are HIV negative(along with no other stds) 3-6 months after possible exposure, then a stealth virus maybe a possibilty.
