Hi! I'm in a very stresful situation. I've been through a antibiotics treatment and now i have been diagnosed with candida in my mounth and throat.

What is annoying me is that i have headaches and im pretty dissy most of the time. Also i feel that my muscles are aching to pretty bothersome extent, especially in my back and arms. Also I have some digestive problems, feeling bloaded and have gas for some time now. Doctor says all of these symptoms, could be but not necesarilly from candida.

Im pretty freaked. I dunno what to do about it. It seems doctors just dont take my symptoms to seriously. Some of them even suggest that its mostly due to anxiety and panic attacks.

Can anyone shed any light?

  • Candida gave me massive dizziness for months after antibiotics. Also causes urethra discomfort, insomnia, and oral thrush.
