  1. I'm not sure who might be following this thread anymore but I thought I'd add some more interesting information into the mix. So because of my constant battles with candida, my immunologist thinks I have chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis which fits as I have struggled with yeast problems for years...
  2. Thank you to all of you with advice and encouragement because I have read each part and it's helped me try to figure this mess out just a little bit more at a time. I thought I'd post a quick update to this ongoing drama in case anyone was interested or curious like me. I am actually more confused...
  3. Just thought I'd post an update in case people are curious. I got the results of genetic testing. I do have the 'Celiac gene' but it looks like I also have HFE hemochromatosis. This actually explains a lot... scarily a lot. Not sure where I'm going from here. Still frustrated beyond belief....
  4. I just re-read your original post and I am more convinced than ever that it's Candida. The rashes and feeling like something is stuck in her throat are both things I have been very familiar with! Look in her throat with a light and see if you can see any white patches of any kind. Candida has...
  5. It can but they have shown time and time again that the liver bounces right back after the medication is stopped. I had some severe abdominal pain, cramping, bloating and major pain that went away after 2-3 days on Fluconazole! I showed visible signs of liver damage in the form of mild jaundice...
  6. Thank you for the clarification on thyroid and parathyroid. I was too tired to look it up last night. I am not jittery and don't consume a lot of caffeine. 1 zipfizz has less caffeine in it than a cup of coffee. And I just started back up coffee yes, but it's about half a cup a day. That I drink...
  7. Totally understandable and respectable. Like an addict who can't be helped until they want to be...
  8. Try treating Candida? If she feels better after a week or so on something like fluconazole, I bet that could be the issue. It can cause all that and more! Especially after exposure to antibiotics. It can't hurt and is a rather simple step to try to rule out.
  9. Yes finally understanding! Thank you! This is exactly what I needed! I keep stressing to my doctors that I think I have a thyroid issue and have been avoiding Vitamin D because my instincts are telling me to and I've learned to listen to them. I have always been super sensitive and somewhat empathic...
  10. BTW...I don't have diarrhea! And have been through the battery of tests for autoimmune disease and they have all been normal. I have been told by a very reputable doctor who is up on all the latest research and is brilliant and highly regarded in his field that the chances that I have an autoimmune...
  11. I CAN'T EAT WHOLE FOODS BECAUSE OF MY SLEEVED STOMACH AND I'M BEING TOLD TO CUT OUT EVERYTHING PROCESSED. SERIOUSLY? I have literally been told not to eat every single food out there by a combination of difference sources. By the way, supplements are processed. So are protein drinks and anything...
  12. Like I said, one by one everything in my life is being taken away from me while all I do is continue to get worse. The only vitamin level I've been low in is Vit D...but Vit D supplements cause kidney stones. My B12 is through the roof and yeah I have suspected MTHFR mutation so I'm on hydroxo...

  14. After...The sleeve was over 4 years ago, the Celiac last December just before Christmas. Before going gluten free, I had no stomach issues at all, just a large ovarian cyst that was sitting on my bowel causing pain with movements, which is why they talked me into doing the stupid scopes that I did...
  15. Sorry, coffee was one of the things that was suggested I eliminate because of the amount of milk I used to add to it and the caffeine causing problems since I take a stimulant for my sleep problems (narcolepsy/hypersomnia) and ADD. So I did to see if it would make a difference but now that I see...
