Its oral thrush they tell me. I wonder how long Iíve had this yeast overgrowth forÖ? Iím guessing a long time. I only became more proactive about this once I started to spit lots of mucus and experience frog in throat-like symptoms.
I was prescribed Nystatin. I took double the initial dosage because the symptoms never went away. A week later I started to get scary heart palpitations and tightness in my chest. I think the nystatin caused this. Maybe itís it working killing the candida and that was the side effect Ė I donít know.
I must admit it has done something, I no longer have that horrible sensation in my throat. However I still have lots of mucus in my spit along with a white tongue.
Iím looking to take a stronger anti-fungal medicine like fluconazole. Hopefully getting rid of my candida overgrowth will help with my EC which Iíve had for 16years.
