new to the board and very overwhelmed with all the information.
back in November I came down with what i thought was the flu. sore throat along with really red throat, complete exhaustion, and just feeling horrible. the major brunt of it went away but i still have mild sore throat, and the back and sides of my throat are really red. the more activity i do as i go through my day, the redder my throat gets. i also have aching in my legs, not too bad, but its there. my eyes will burn by the end of the day too, again not too bad but they get bloodshot and burns, this is not every day though. i also have a mild sinus infection that will not go away, even after antibiotics. one other crazy symptom i had was the palms of my hands turned really red and were really dry, but that went away. i thought the hand symptoms might have been caused by moving to a different climate, but it makes me wonder. some days i am completely exhausted, other days i am ok. one more thing is the gland on the right side of my neck is always swollen, its only the right side, and sometimes it goes down a bit but always stays swollen. i have been tested for everything from mono, flu, HIV, etc etc. my dr said i had a yeast infection in the back of my throat and gave me nystatin, that didnt work at all, i followed that with mycolex lozenges. i am at a loss and i wonder if this could be a systemic candida infection??
along with this i have itchy scaly scalp, white flaking and red irritation inside the ears and on the backside of my ears, i also have red flaky spots pop up on my face, and anytime i let my beard start to grow i have major flaking and sometimes so burning where my beard is. my toenail also seems to have fungus. i also have been diagnosed with IBS, i go from diarhea to constipation and then back again. i also have GERD and have been having really really bad heartburn lately, very hard to even control. i have had GERD for 20 years at least, but now its getting worse. i also have acne that pops up on my face, back and chest, i am 36 years old and dont think i should have acne.
i read about parasites yesterday a bit, and then last night i woke up in the middle of the night and thought i felt something moving around my anus and itching it. so i wonder if this might mean parasite. although, maybe it was the power of the mind after reading what i did.
i have started candida treatment 3 days ago and following the plan cocoalover did. my diet is perfect now as far as i know. i did experience die off yesterday, major headache only on right side and feeling like total crapola.
do you think this is candida overgrowth, or maybe something else, parasites?
is there a link here with a candida attack plan?
many thanks and i sincerely appreciate any an all help. i have dealt with sinus infections all my life, along with asthma and an overall lower immune system than normal people. my dr even suggested immune globolin(sp?) treatments at one time.
i am hoping i can finally get a breakthrough and turn this around.
