    If you have Candida in the esophagus, then yes it could. You might also have slight problems when swallowing. Do you have any other symptoms at all?

    Last year my husband was exposed to a lot of mold over a 3-month period. His symptoms started with the feeling like his throat was closing up and he couldn’t breath. This resulted in several trips to the ER towards the end of the 3-month exposure time. His biggest complaint is the feeling that someone has their hands around his throat choking him. He’s been to several specialists over the past year …. Pulmonary, Allergist, Digestive, EENT, and generalists. Nobody knows what’s wrong. Then, I started taking a Microbiology course this summer and started learning about molds and yeasts, and thought maybe he could have a systemic mold/yeast infection. After finding this website, it started to make sense. He had a positive spittle test, which seems to clinch it for me. I think he may have thrush, he just got athletes foot, which he’s never had before, he’s afraid to eat, because this usually upsets his throat, he’s lost a lot of weight, and sometimes feels “like he’s dying”. I’ve encouraged him to get his antibodies tested, but he hasn’t done that yet. We’re going to start changing his diet as soon as he returns home. So, that’s where we are now… Any advice would be great. Thank you.

    Since other doctors haven’t been able to do anything for him, I would suggest he see a Naturopathic physician.

    For the thrush, look for a post on the forum titled “Oral Thrush.”

    I would definitely have him go on the Candida diet immediately when he returns home. He should be on the diet for at least a week, then he can slowly add a few antifungal products. You can let us know how he’s doing, someone is always available to talk with you and help when possible.
