Please help me understood if what I`m experiencing is Candida or IBS related or other undiagnosed thing.
For the last 10 years I knew I had Candida overgrown but I had ups and downs and never followed a strict diet , having lots of carbonated drinks , alcohol on occasions , eating fast food and sweets and having at least 3 strong coffees each morning on an empty stomach.
10 Months ago I started feeling very bad when having coffee in the morning and after eating. One night after having a big dinner I woke up to go to the bathroom and I fainted on the bathroom floor.
I was the only fainting episode in my life and since then I did not had another one , however , my symptoms continued.
Here are some of the symptoms:
Clear mucus discharge from anus. (The situation improved a bit since then, I do not always have that)
Very thick, slimy saliva after eating and in the morning. Sometime I spit gel like balls.
Pain in the stomach or intestines , cannot pinpoint the location as it moves around ,one day is on one side , one day is on the left side or both and some days I`m free of pain.
Pain is getting worse under stressful situations. (Sometimes it was sharp , but lately it resembles a migraine in the stomach)
Yellow floating stool with white small patches.
After eating some types of food I have a strange feeling on my tongue – like a sensitivity.
I lost a lot of weight ( 30 pounds in 6 months) , not sure if because of the condition but maybe also because I refuse to eat a lot of things.
I had the tests for (all negative)
Candida in the stool
Parasites / bacteria in the stool / saliva.
2 Sets of Ultrasound at 2 doctors – both said that I`m ok.
2 Sets of blood work / liver tests / Thyroid – all ok
Medications that I had :
I have tried the following medications this months:
1 X 150 mg Fluconazole – every other day for a couple of weeks
Liver Enzymes – Kreon.
Lots of IBS natural remedies. (Peppermint oil and so on )
Colon Cleanse supplements.
High concentration probiotics.
To be honest with you I, sometimes I was feeling better when I was not taking them. I have started to watch what I eat , but I`m still eating most of the foods except sweets and carbonated drinks and sweets. Once a couple of weeks I still go with friends and have some beers , I also cannot quit smoking and having coffee first thing in the morning.
Please let me know if someone else has the same symptoms.
