Thanks for you wonderful posts. I am following them.
Please check if you can get a breath test done. If you have high levels of Methane or Hydrogen gas that would show that you not only have Candida but too suffer from bacterial overgrowth. A lot of your sympthoms are that of endotoxins playing harvoc with your system.Hightend levels of endotoxins might just exceed the livers detoxifying capacity and spill over into the bloodstrea to cause systemic hyperalgesia. Therefore you pains in the body. Brain fog which is longer than you die-off time max 5 weeks is a good indicator for SIBO. Bloating, distension and flatulence are too strong indicators for bacterial fermentations in your small intestines. Especially when you wake up in the morning with a flat stomach and over the day you get round and bloated.
If you consider getting the breath test, please dont buy a home kit as the test have to be done at a doctors place and take several hours find a medical practitioner who uses a gas chromatograph from the company QuinTron SC which tests both Methane AND Hydrogen. You can get the info which doctor has this maschine from the company. Phone 800-542-4448 or their Website: http://www.quintron-usa.com
If you are afraid loosing more weight and cant stomach your protein drinks anymore try Vivonex which is pre-digested and gives your body what it needs. You actually can live from that stuff only if it would not be so expensive.
all the best to you
