Mon, Feb 25 7:01am · Difficult case, several diagnosis, no solution yet in Autoimmune Diseases

@stumpjumper This sounds like what happened to me. I had a very stressful job at the time, very physical and emotionally draining. I also during that time took an antibiotic for an upper respiratory infection.

I developed thrush in my mouth a week after the medicine was done. I usually get these with antibiotics but this time I didn't seek treatment for it. I thought it would go away on its own.

The infection went down my throat and into my stomach and intestines. I experienced chronic fatigue. I couldn't even get out of bed. I used to work out and run. I could run 5 miles, I weight lifted, and did Ariel sports. Now I could barely get out of bed. I had terrible panic attacks, and my head felt hollow. I couldn't sleep well at night despite feeling weak and drained. Whenever I are any grains or sugar my stomach would bloat up and I would be gassy and I would get this drunk feeling. Despite all this I cracked sugar. I would also get panic attacks after eating those things. It is hard for me to think and concentrate, I have brain fog as well. Lots of pain and inflammation throughout my body. My feet an legs feel sore and burning. I have itchy skin all over as well.

I'm still dealing with this now. I got a doctor 1 year later to diagnose me with yeast overgrowth however I've been on treatment medicine, Nystatin 2x a day for 4 months and the infection is still present. I don't know what else to do. I might be living with this the rest of my life. Try going to a Functional Medicine doctor in your area. They are the only ones who know about this disorder. Get specifically a: comprehensive stool sample for candida and parisites from them it's around $300-$400 and will test the DNA if microbes in your stools. It's more efficient than traditional lab tests done at Western medicine clinics. Also a urine acid test for candida.

@sundance6 This sounds like what U have, I got intestinal candida after taking a round of antibiotics in 2017. I still have it, the antifungals I was prescribed haven't killed it and the side effects are bad. Have you gone to a functional medicine doctor yet? They don't take insurance but it can be worth it to get a proper diagnosis. My heart goes out to you. I know what it's like to suffer and have no support.

My question to the medical community is can someone with intestinal candida get IV treatment? My infection is so bad and no one is helping me except for my functional medicine doctor.

@richardbuckner I am having the same issue. It took me almost a year to find a doctor who believed me and treated me for intestinal candida. I got it after a round of antibiotics in October of 2017.

I was told only immunocompromised people get it which isn't true. I know other 'healthy' people who have gotten it.

I was put on Nystatin 2x a day. I took it for 4 months, but it wasn't effective and now the infection has returned. I don't know what else to do? Candida is a terrible thing to get and no one seems to know what to do which is scary. It is very hard to live my life. I'm constantly drained, insomnia, headaches, chemical sensitivity, I can't eat most things.

I too fear this is going to be a life time battle. I want to try voriconozole 1x a week for 6 months. I had a friend who received similar treatment. I can pulse with that medicine because if I take it every day longer term I get bad side effects.
