Hi, can somebody help me? I'm really depressed, scared and sad right now. I'm almost at the verge of suicide.
I suffer from Candida since the summer of 2010. Nobody have ever diagnosed me with candida because all the doctors I've been to are very ignorant about this disease (they don't even think a man can get candida).
I have debilitating brain fog that got progressively worse over the years, skin rashes, chronic fatigue, loose stools, carbs craving, Depression and now even epididymitis. All these symptoms have a clear link: they're all caused by candida but my doctors don't want to understand it.
Two weeks ago I had a very acute pain in my testicles. I rushed to the emergency room and they said I have an epididymitis. They treated it with a round of Antibiotic (for 10 days) but the pain is still here (it got worse actually).
Then today I searched online if my testicular pain (epididymitis) could be linked with candida and of course it is, epididymitis can be caused by candida.
This is very serious because if it gets chronic I can become sterile. Only antifungals can treat it successfully in my case but my doctors keep telling me it's bacterium related and prescribed another round of Antibiotic (for a month). I'm so f***ing angry with them. They're killing me.
I tried everything to get rid of my candida....diet, natural antifungals (all kind...), probiotics (VSL), colostrum, colonics, threelac, enzymes that break candida biofilms, various vitamins/minerals ecc....nothing really worked apart threelac.
I used to take 4 packs a day (following a candida diet) and all my symptoms improved a good 80%. I felt so good but then I run out of threelac and after some weeks my symptoms returned.
Now I'm at my wits end. I wasted so much money and my candida is still here.
I used to be a very friendly and ambitious guy but now I lost everything. I lost my friends, I ruined my career (my brain fog doesn't allow me to remember the things I study), I lost tons of money but above all I lost the will to live. Nobody believe me and support me in my struggles against this disease and against the ignorance of all the doctors.
My last hope is prescription antifungals (diflucan, sporanox, nystatin ecc). I've been to tens of doctors and nobody want to prescribe them to me. I tried everything, even telling them that I'd sign an exoneration from responsabilities if they prescribed them to me. But they were stubborn and insisted all my problems were related to depression, anxiety and stress.
I've seen lots of people here managed to get a prescription of diflucan or other antifungals. I'd like to know how you convinced your doctor to prescribe them to you. What test did you do? I'm willing to travel all over Europe to find a legitimate doctor that can prescribe me those antifungals. I'd really appreciate if you told me the name of the doctor that prescribed it to you.
It's my last hope.
