I too have been in chronic pain for many years and was misdiagnosed a multitude of times. Currently, I can only eat about a dozen foods. That’s it. Eradicating a candida overgrowth, from what I’m told, takes a long time. One year to 18-months. So, hang in there! Probably the best thing you can do immediately is to start taking a probiotic. There’s really good information on the forum about why it’s needed, suggested kinds and when to take it. Just do a search and you’ll find the info. Also, stick strictly to your diet of fresh vegetables and eggs (if you can tolerate them). Finally, you should include an antifungal in your diet. Coconut oil is considered to be the best; however, it may be cost prohibitive considering your budget. Another good option, which works for me, is garlic. Chop it up (introduce it slowly into diet) and put it on your veggies. If you feel odd afterward, that’s the effects of die-off, which means the antifungal is working. Include those three recommendations into your daily regimen. The candida diet is not an easy path but there are plenty of people here on the forum who can guide you and offer advice based on their personal experiences. Good luck and best wishes!
