No one on the internet can diagnose you and what you are ill with. At the least, the antibiotics destroyed some of your beneficial flora and this allows for pathogens, bugs, and the bad bacteria to thrive.
These are the candida tests Dr. Mcoombs recommends. The results need to be analyzed a western or naturopathic doctor. Some GI doctors also can analyze the results.
To test for SIBO there is a breath test. Most Dr. offices can do this or send you to a place that can test for this.
You likely have multiple types of bacteria, bugs, or parasites that have cropped up and in my opinion, most people who have candida overgrowth have some kind of different overgrowth as well. Everyone has parasites, just at different levels.
Most western doctors cannot treat gut flora disorders or digestive disorders but they can diagnose them.
