I hope its only a candida overgrowth and not IBS, because I have trouble passing stool. Is that also a symptom of candida overgrowth?
It can be a symptom of either one or a combination of both. Don’t be too surprised if you also have IBS as it often goes along with a Candida overgrowth, which many of our members can attest to.
If I do have candida overgrowth, wouldn’t they see it in the lab?
That depends on the type of test that was done. You would have to ask for the specific test, and even then there’s a chance that the results can be incorrect.
