Thanks so much for your response. I do have MG – just ocular, but it is quite debilitating as it causes extreme eye fatigue, dizziness and double vision, which I think in turn causes chronic fatigue. I’m 32 and was diagnosed a little over 2 years ago and take mestinon to control the symptoms although it doesn’t do much to help.
I have several other symptoms that led me to the candida diet (such as coated tongue, sore throat, dizziness, fatigue, oily skin, eczema, bloating, blurred vision, poor memory/confusion, cravings for sugar and alcohol, sinusitis, anxiety, etc) and I’ve been following the diet very strictly for two weeks now. So far I feel very tired and I’m experiencing quite a bit of overall muscle weakness. I have been continuing my regular workout routine, and I have lost about 5 pounds on the diet – so I’m guessing the weight loss might be connected to the fatigue. At times I need to literally lie down and rest I am so tired and weak, typically in the afternoons around 2/3, but sometimes this feeling lasts all day. I’m taking probiotics and anti fungals but have not had any other serious die-off symptoms that everyone is talking about – maybe it has yet to kick in, or perhaps candida is not my problem, it’s very hard to know.
My MG symptoms have stayed the same for the duration of the two weeks, although at times it’s like a curtain lifting, and my vision is clear and I feel stable and strong and energetic. I am going to persist with the diet for at least 6 weeks to see if I notice an improvement. Sadly I was sort of hoping this might be my problem since it at least has a fix – if not I will be back at the drawing board trying to understand why I suffer from all of these ailments.
I’d be really interested to know how the leaky gut treatment goes – please keep in touch!
