The problem is: I have absolutely no GI issues, and no visible yeast anywhere. I don’t get bloating, gas, pain, diarrhea or allergic reaction to anything. But, I could swear that whatever I experienced on Diflucan was not a Placebo effect. I was miserable the last couple of years, and still am. I feel like I am disconnected from everything. Sort of wobbly. Like the feeling of waking up from a surgery but not being able to fully wake up. Very tired – mental tiredness.. I can not think clearly, and I have a hard time visualizing things in my head. I can’t close my eyes and visualize a scene.. It is very choppy. I sometimes think 5 things at once extremely fast and they mix up. I wake up very tired and in need to rush things.. Like I am running a marathon or something… I can’t sit calmly, watch the trees, or watch TV without feeling rushed. And all of these symptoms went away when I took Diflucan the four days that I took it. My doctor said it was all in my head and she recommended me to a psychiatrist.
I have graduated from a very top University with an engineering degree, and I can’t do the work I want to do. In addition, my sleep is horrible. My doctor attributes my symptoms to depression, sleep disorder, and OCD over yeast because I have no visible symptoms and all the blood work came normal including MRI, CAT scan, lyme, candida anti bodies etc..
Thanks guys. I know I am a bit obsessed about this, but it is scary being this way. I feel like I am half alive. I have been this way ever since dropping the anti biotics for acne, and never recovered.
