If you are XMRV positive by any testing method, please indicate whether your illness came on suddenly or gradually. Thanks!

It's a little tricky for me to answer. I definitely did not have acute onset, but I've had suspiscious health issues since I was at least 2.5 years, possibly since birth. But, didn't start to be seriously affected by symptoms until my first pregnancy. So, I put gradual onset (although once I was pregnant it wasn't so gradual), even though I may have been infected with XMRV since birth.
