Last October i had really bad digestive issues. Bloating/constipation and gas. I tried every single over the counter remedy, and nothing worked. Fast forward to December, and i found out i was pregnant. I started to feel a bit spaced out, it felt like i was extremely high. It would come and go, along with some headaches every couple of days, which with a little tylenol would be gone.This went away after a few weeks, and then a week later i miscarried. I did not feel spaced out, or have the headaches again until about 3 week later, and now the spaced out feeling is 24/7 from when i wake up to when i go to bed for the past 4 months. I am certain that these issues have some link to digestive problems, because the spaced out feeling gets worse when i eat sugar/carbs. I have been to a gastro who did some stool samples, and the only thing that came back was yeast overgrowth in stool. He gave me nystatin for 10 days, and it didn't do anything except make me a little more regular with my bowel movements. He wanted to do a colonoscopy, but i have put that on hold because i don't want to go under anesthesia with my head feeling this way. Other symptoms i am experiencing: Extreme light sensitivity Heartburn only after "bad" foods Bloating Constipation Stomach pressure Itchy ears/nose Post nasal drip Vaginal yeast infections urgency/frequency urination (microscopic blood found in urine) Undigested food in stools White tissue bits in urine and stool Yellow nut looking things in stool sometimes without consuming nuts I have had a ct scan of the head which was normal, and have been tested for celiac twice. I also read about yeast overgrowth issues seems my gastro found overgrowth in my stool. I saw a doctor who deals with yeast overgrowth who has given me nystatin and diflucan to try. I am giving it a go, but i am losing hope because i have seen no improvement and i don't know where to turn next. I feel spaced out all the time, and it is really ruining my life. Can you offer any advice?

  • The bloating is a common symptom of Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO). You can have both SIBO and yeast overgrowth in your intestines. Low thyroid is associated with yeast overgrowth, miscarraige, SIBO and brain fog. Here is a link for you. http://healthyawareness.com/forum-candida-general Also, perhaps join one of the discussion groups on SIBO. There is one called SIBOnation in the yahoo groups. Careful with Diflucan if you have weak adrenals. Get plenty of salt when using it.

  • yes its parasites and the medical profession will never tell you that. Don't freak out just start eating foods that will not feed them and start taking cleanses. go visit your local health food stores and don't look for much help there either as the clerks know nothing, study it for youself/ Eat lot of pumpkin seeds and carrots/

  • A histamine reaction to parasites is one possible reason for SIBO. Parasites are usually missed with stool testing. There is newer DNA testing for parasites that is perhaps better. Pumpkin seeds kill only certain parasites. Carrots kill yeast, but you need more than that. However, from what you are saying, I'd investigate the thyroid angle first. See an alternative practitioner.

  • The nut looking things are tapeworms. You also could have other types of parasites as well. Sugar intake is forbidden whether it is parasites , cancer or any disease. The current labs are of no use today in detecting parasites. The enzymes will help tremendously but you will have to address the parasites with either herbal treatments or medicine.
