I use to be a regular here but decided to spend much time researching other possibilities for my ill health. I have easily 20+ symptoms that come and go. I tested originally with a moderately elevated candida test and also high cortisol.
I focused on that for months. Im still not sure if that is the root CAUSE of my health problems.......
ive tested my thyroid, metals, etc etc etc with all negatives.
Now...with all the web searching, reading, doctor visits and discussions ive been involved in Ive ended up with this:
Finally got a diagnosis but i dont know if i truly believe in it.
Chronic Fatigue and Immune Dysfunction syndrome. For those that arent familiar it can creat many many debilitating symptoms in your body/mind. Its NOT JUST fatigue like the name may lead you to believe. Often people with this syndrome can have candida problems etc...because of their weak system.
But ive also read other things....that Chronic-Fatigue-Syndrome can just be MISDIAGNOSED LYME DISEASE. Ive just gotten tested through igenex and am awaiting my results.
Lets see...what else....ive heard thyroid treatment can help even with normal tests...
Dysautonomia is another condition that sounds like me that people think can be the true reason for all our symptoms.
Oh...and Bipolar II
Now...my symptoms range greatly and dont seem to have any relationship...but they must.
I guess my point is....if treatment for candida is letting you down....please spend time looking into other things. I am very sick....and i decided not to put all my eggs in one basket.
