I missed this thread, because lately I've only been coming to the forum when I receive e-mails.
I hope that you feel better real soon! :)
I don't know how true this is, because I'm just learning about
it myself. I do a lot of research online and I ran across many sites like the one I've posted below. Lately, I have a habbit of relating candida to other illnesses.
This is a quote from the site:
Of course, with so many people suffering, the doctors couldn't brush our symptoms aside forever. Many more people are now being diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) or CFIDS (Chronic Fatigue and Immune Dysfunction), Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS), Lupus, Hypothyroidism, Leaky Gut Syndrome, Crohn's Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Celiac Disease, chronic sinusitis, atopic eczema, Seborrheic Dermatitis, Tinea Versicolor, GI dysbiosis, adrenal dysfunction, Rosacea, Psoriasis, Macular Degeneration, Barrett's Esophagus, Lactose Intolerance, Gluten and/or Casein Intolerance, Meniere's Disease, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and sometimes just depression (which can accompany many disease states), just to name a few.
Some symptoms candida can cause:
* an incapacitating fatigue
* problems with concentration and short-term memory
* flu-like symptoms such as pain in the joints and muscle
* extreme tightness in the shoulders and neck
* hyper-acidity/acid reflux
* brown colored mucus in the back of the throat
* blisters in the mouth/tongue/throat
* either white or "blood blisters"
* un-refreshing sleep
* sore throat
* white coated tongue
* dark circles under the eyes
* an aversion to being touched or jumping
* "crawling" skin
* chronic sinus problems and headaches including migraines
* chronic dental problems
and many more
I hope that I didn't offend you in any way. No way am I saying that you don't have Lupus...but wouldn't it be great if you really don't, and you can finally get well? I'm sure that candida has something to do with my fatigue.
I have been taking Threelac for less than 3 weeks now. So far the only change that I have notice is that I can eat normal without gaining weight. I used to eat normal and gain 5 lbs in 3 days...so I would stop eating normal so that I wouldn't gain weight. Normal to me means breakfast, lunch, and dinner.www.candidafree.net/?gclid=CMrukevhmYgCFSBeSgod9npsRg
