The symptom that I have had the hardest time dealing with/getting rid of has been feeling very dizzy and lightheaded with candida.
There are moments where all of a sudden I will feel EXTREMELY dizzy, like I am riding a see-saw. I feel like something awful is about to happen like a stroke or something I really don't know. Sometimes I feel like I could throw up from them, and there really is not pattern with it. Earlier on this used to happen much more often, and I would wake up in the middle of the night with this, so I can't relate it to anything I eat. It can last anywhere from 30 seconds - 5 minutes.
I asked my doctor what is causing this and he just says the candida is. I was looking for I guess a more scientific explanation or something because when it happens it is pretty scary.
I am following the candida diet. My doctor at the start of all the symptoms thought I had reactive hypoglycemia, yet after more testing was done found out it was candida. He still seems to believe that I have a form of reactive hypoglycemia, but he says I have it because of the candida. I follow the diet, yet it is frustrating after months of trying to treat it I can go a few days feeling better, still somewhat dizzy, and then I'll have a day where the extreme dizzy spells come back.
The poison toxins released from candida seem like a possible explanation. I'm guessing candida has an affect on the adrenal gland? I do not know much about it, and doctor never mentioned it.
from what ive read the adrenal failure happens first lowers the immune system and thyroid them opportunistic pathogens occur.
i dont know about anyone else but my head is f***ed, thinking about everything, constantly overstressing what you eat, do, live has prob been my cause then digestive symptoms subltely creep up.
most of the extremely and i mean extremely little testimononials ive read on this website are people saying they've sorted their head out, now they enjoy food and they have no problems. Alot of this is mind manifested i believe.
my problems stem from childhood problems and extremely low self esteem problems. If i look at my probs they came on after a period of intense stress how about everyone else? not that i wasnt showing signs before that but i guess i was always a weak adrenaled child.
In terms of symptoms coming on after intense stress, I guess my problems seemed to really get worse after a hard break up. Before that though I had some of the symptoms happening, but really did not think much about them.
The break up was 6 months ago and I have definitely moved on. I have pushed myself so hard to try and just be "normal" and to not stress over the candida, but even when I really try to do that I still have the symptoms. I'm hoping to take diflucan and just eliminate any chance of their being candida in my system, that way I know it is not something internal that is causing me to feel this way.
