    So you have XMRV? I visited a Dr south of Boston who wants to blast XMRV, if that is the cause. Not sure that he is ready to treat yet?

  3. Hi Leaves,

    I might try working with a retroviral specialist - like an HIV Medicine doctor. One would think they have the greatest knowledge of working with anti-retrovirals. More knowledge, less fear, more bravado - that's what's needed.

    Here is a searchable database of member doctors at The American Academy of of HIV Medicine:

    There are lots in Boston.

    I hope this helps,

    Elisabeth

    Hi Ggingues; yes xmrv + and I know for a year. Could you send me the contact info of that doc ? I am still looking for a good local doc too.
    Hi Elisabeth, Thank you for that list, I think it is an excellent idea to look for HIV specialists. At the mo I do not have the energy to contact a lot of them and 'put myself out there' but once I am somewhat better I will.
