I would really not take more antibiotics unless you were diagnosed scientifically with what ever you think you may have. Candida is not a bacteria, it is a fungus and does not get killed by anti-biotics which is why taking antibiotics actually makes the issue worst. I don’t believe anyone has the full answer but the candida overgrowth theory is definitely a very plausible and logical one in my opinion. I strongly believe I made my case worst by taking too many antibiotics. Stress and general mood/emotional well being is also a big factor.
Do you remember what you were going through emotionally during the very first onset of your symptoms and then when they became what they are today?
