I don't know if me saying "rest assured, this is quite common with candida," brings any comfort, but it does. Since I've had the beast, I've had off an on severe anxiety and panic attacks. I first had them about 15 years ago so badly, that I had to move back home with my family and go on meds. This was before we knew I had candida. I also get depressed easily, have little patience with stupid drivers, and when the candida was at it's worse, felt vengeful towards those who had done me wrong, even if it was just taking my parking spot. That scared me. Sadly, it is the nature of the beast. Having finally found the right doctor, I learned that on top of the candida, I have major hormonal imbalances and food allergies as well. The doc said they all tend to go hand in hand and you don't have to be a woman to have hormonal imbalances. Aggiespoke (who is another poster) and I go are patients of the Hotze Wellness Center. When I think of the 10's of thousands of dollars I have wasted over the last 11 plus years trying to find an answer, only to find one two states away from where I live, it peeves me. I hope our stories will be able to help others from having to endure what we have. Good luck.
