    Hi,
    I have just been told I have candida after my naturopath ordered me to get a swab.
    For 2 years I have had dizzy spells, feel off balance when walking, lightheaded, anxiety and panic attacks and I have beefed my drs to find out why I feel so awful. They kept telling me anxiety and stress but I know it isn’t because I feel off so much of the time.

    Could these symptoms all be related to having candida? I’m not familiar with it and my gp was useless, he googled candida and told me to take a thrush medication but I don’t have any thrush!! I asked him how to manage it and he said maybe come back in three months – that was all he gave me!!

    I have also suffered three miscarriages in two years and have had all tests come back normal. Can candida play a role in this?

    Any info is greatly appreciated 🙂

    You probably do have candida.

    I have all those symptoms and was diagnosed with candidiasis 2 years ago, after having struggled with health issues since age 15. The best thing you can do for yourself is continue to see a natropath, stay on this forum for support, and research foods to help you nurture your body and also take vitamins that others recommend that have helped them. Don’t let yourself be alone in it, and find someone who understands… Even if it’s just on this forum, it’s vital to have understanding.

    I’m sorry you’re struggling and I will pray things get better for you..
    You have my best wishes and my prayers…

    Diarrhea can mean die-off or it can be something more serious so its hard to say what is causing it.
