I have had on and off feeling of being too hot and too cold, especially at night, preventing sleep. I have had the zapping feelings in my legs. The past week, since I’ve started the Molybdenum, I have tighting in my arms, severe twitching in my arms, happening at night. It is gone in the morning. I was wondering if it was a side effect of the Molydenum, but I don’t see it stated as such. I was also wondering if it’s a symptom of die off or the candida in general. It has been scaring me. I have thought is this Parkinson’s?
After, reading the other posts (thanks for sharing), it does sound like candida can cause a host of neurological symptoms. I was considering stopping the Molybdenum, but I’m not sure. I had done a cleanse for 4 weeks and now I’ve been following the diet with some coconut bread and I experience die off every evening, skin itching, painful joints, brainfog. I added one teaspoon of coconut oil yesterday and within 30 minutes I was itching all over. It seems like I am very sensitive to the antifungals. Last fall I took Nystatin for 4 months, it lowered my symptoms, but after I stopped they have come back.
As far as testing for Candida Thomas, what are you talking about? From the candida questionaire, I test at the high end. I had a stool test for candida and it was negative. I tested positive for multiple gram negative rods and have treated for it. I went to two nutritionist and a naturalpath who all think I have candida and that it is systemic. They said it doesn’t always show as an overgrowth it the bowel if it has gone systemic. I know that when I quit eating sugar and carbs it gets better and when I eat sugar again it will come back within 2 weeks.
I’ve been having a rough time. I hope we all get better soon!
I would be careful believing too quickly everything people tell you if they keep you on stock and you paying them for a long long and long time. A check in a good clinic saves you all that money and makes sure that you dont hopp onto a diet which is not good for you or that you buy a lots off supplements you dont need.
How do you know that your symptoms are not coming from a bacterial unbalance which is the case in IBS. It has the same symptoms as candida, histamine overproduction has the same symptoms as candida, reactive Hypogleycemia has exactly the same symptoms as the candida list you are talking about. There are several other sicknesses a run down thyroid gland can produce tons of the same problems, hormonal unbalance too.
So, I believe it is indeed good to play Sherlock Holms and digg into the crime scene and try to find out what is true and what is not.
Here is what I learned from djorge:
Candida Immune Complexes in blood is the best test available to confirm an intestinal overgrowth.
The test looks for present antibody, antigen, and fragments of complement of the candida cell wall circulating in the blood. These fragments is the highly valuable part in this test.
good luck and I hope the info helps you.
