At first I’d like to say thank you to everybody who helped me in my previous thread. I can’t tell you how greatful it makes me to have this place to come for support and knowledge. The appointment with my doctor really made me feel low and helpless. I’ll copy what I wrote to two of the members in an email. So this is my update:
“I’ve got both positive and negative news. The doctor that made me
feel like a looney actually ordered a test for candida, without me
knowing it. I found out a day later and turned in my stool sample
two days after that. I’m still waiting for a reply. Although it’s
possible that my die-off and problems are due to bad bacteria, SIBO
or parasites. I have never been sure which one it is, just that
something is giving me symtoms and die-off after intake of antibacterial
or antifungal natural medicines.
The bad news is that she also told her collegue to tell me that I need
a mental checkup. Lol. She though it would be good if I did a full
psychiatric test to see what is wrong with me. Well, if they want to
think I’m crazy that’s up to them. I’m just happy my doctor ordered
that candida test, so I can find out for sure (even though the tests
aren’t always right, it’s much better than nothing).”
When I’m at it id like to ask about those stool tests. Can you rely on them?
I also had problems with an urinary tract infection and this is my update for that:
“I took two courses of antibiotics. The first one didn’t help at all.
It even seemed to make things worse. Then I went on another round and
my tests for bacteria came back negative. Though my problems wasn’t gone
and they’re still there allthough much weaker. My doctor said something
about urethritis, that the bacteria could have done harm that needed
time to heal – that the lingering problems could be due to the harm,
not depending on remaining bacteria. Though, I haven’t yet outruled
the possibility that candida can be part of the problem. I have to
wait and see what happens. I actually made my doctor order a test
for candida in my stools. Haven’t got it back yet, so I’m awaiting
reply. If the test comes back positive for candida, then there’s a
good change the fungus is causing my urinary tract infections.
At first the antibiotics made my stomach so, so bad. My main symptom
is stomach problems, gas, diarrhea. These got worse while on antibiotics
and remained persistent until a couple of days ago. I’m hoping that
the antibiotics didn’t set me back all to much.” Oh, and also some
worsening of brain fog after eating due to the antibiotcs.
So that’s what going on with me these days.
Hope everyone had a merry christmas!
