  • I actually was just looking this up!!! I have been having trouble in girl land making life miserable and nothing seems to be working..i was trying to figure out what it is and realized that I have almost ALL the symptoms of Candida. It is an overgrowth of yeast in the body. It can cause fatigue, foggy thinking, skin rashes, infections, etc... I did find a natural treatment for it, but they want $200 for the kit and that just aint happening...so I guess I will just suffer.

  • If you really have yeast overgrowth, it needs proper treatment--probiotics, strict diet, etc. As far as doctors "not believing in it," keep looking 'til you find one who does! I haven't been officially dx'ed yet, but after months of research, I'm convinced that it's my biggest problem related to a lifetime of hypoglycemia and severe symptoms over the past 2 years of hypothyroid (treated), SEVERE D deficiency (also under treatment), Celiac Disease (being treated), as well as horrific itching, severe exhaustion, chronic dopiness and senility, gaining back 30 lbs after losing 95 without a problem (and still about 85 to go), and generally just falling apart. This is a REAL problem, and it's to blame for SO many others, including fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. IMHO, any "doctor" who casually dismisses it as a possible reason for symptoms is a QUACK.
