I’m so sorry for all the questions. I am really trying to find help locally but am striking out. I do have an appointment today with a chiropractor but am not sure how much she will know. And I tried to get in to see a homeopathic doctor but she isn’t taking new clients until November. And, obviously, I can’t wait that long.
Anyway, Able, I did stop taking the Diflucan and the probiotics as you recommended and some of the “brain fog” has lifted a bit. However, the diarrhea and headaches have worsened. Diarrhea has always been a very big problem for me (I was going 8-12 times per day from January through just last week) so I really don’t want to go down that road again. I think the probiotics were helping on that front. Why did you recommend discontinueing the probiotics? I’m thinking that, in my case, I should start taking them again. But if there are legitimate reasons not to please let me know. I sincerely trust your expertise.
Also, I am really struggling with food options and sleep. I have been sticking to the diet. It is bland and boring but, honestly, I am in so much pain and distress I really don’t care. I would eat mud at this point if that’s what it took to get better. But the problem is that, with the IBS, food intolerances, and nausea, I struggle daily with what to put in my body that either won’t come out the other end, cause abdominal distress, or extreme gagging. I’m not getting much sleep at night because of this. I can’t sleep without food in my stomach (it’s been this way for the past few years. I always thought it was because of breastfeeding but now that I’ve weaned them all I’m wondering if it was candida). But trying to find the right foods to make me feel full has been difficult (any suggestions?). So, I only sleep for 4-5 hours and then I’m up, usually with diarrhea before I even have breakfast. I am hungry throughout the day and would love to have options for quick, easy snacks that I can grab without having to prepare anything. I know nuts are an option but, with the IBS, they often give me diarrhea. Hard boiled eggs are another option but right now they make me very nauseous. Anyway, I am really struggling and would so appreciate any advice or suggestions. I still can’t drive because of the dizziness so I’d like to make one big grocery list and send my husband tomorrow night (he can’t go tonight because of dance class, baseball practice, etc.–life must go on, even if mommy has candida). :o(
Finally, I have called around and cannot find molybdenum amino acid chelate anywhere locally. I’m thinking maybe we could order it on Amazon (?). If so, which one would you recommend? Thanks again, Able, for your replies and for all your help. This journey has been hell and I am grateful for this resource.
