I too have been suffering from adrenal problems that are convinced are the root of my candida problems. If I am under any kind of stress whether negative or positive my cortisol levels skyrocket. I had some adrenal tests done and my cortisol levels were extremely high even when I was sleeping. Ususally after a few days or weeks I completely crash and get extremely depressed and barely able to function.
In my experience there is a strong correlation between adrenal funciton and candida. Whenever I have an adrenal crash the candida comes back alot worse. I think one of the keys to beating this thing is reducing your stress load as much as possible so your adrenals can heal and the ant-fungals and probiotics can do their job.
Well, at least I know I’m not alone. Many of the same symptoms in response to stress and the resultant crash.
I agree, there is a strong connection between candida and adrenal/thyroids. Wonder if you have low iron as well?
