 If anyone here is familiar with this please tell me what you know. Is it possible for die off to last for 5 weeks and to be so bad a person needs to be rushed to the hospital for morphine?

    I'm okay now, I havent had any pain since yesterday morning. I had h pylori and took the antibiotics to get rid of it then did a breath test a month later and it was gone but I also went on a gluten sugar dairy free diet and I think all this back pain I had was candida die off.

    On friday night for the first time since this hell started i had enough and had a picnic ice cream followed by a whole packet of 200gms chips and havent had any pains since. not even a twinge. so now I am gorging on junk foods and sugars to keep the die off away. Geez, I would rather have candida than go thru the hell Ive beeen thru.

    C & P from a site :


    The most severe form of candida is called candida septicaemia, it is characterised by blood poisoning and an infection of all organs, this type of candida only occurs in patients who have life threatening disorders.

    Women tend to be more prone to candida, this is probably due to the fact that the anatomy of a woman suits candida. It also affects babies as they can get infected through breast milk, and children (see the link between ADD/ADHD, autism and candida at the end of the fact sheet). The incidence of candida still remains unclear, it is not a condition which is easily accepted and diagnosed by doctors because there is a lack of research, candida is however regarded as a major disorder by holistic practitioners believe that several factors favour the overpopulation of candida.

    I've never heard of it either, but unless it was actually diagnosed, I would say it sounds like you have starved your body of important nutrients.

    Maybe, but since this started I've been eating lots of salads and vegetables and meat also! I mean everyday and I'm normally a vegetarian. I was just so sick I couldnt even cook or do anything so I just ate what was given to me.

    hmmmm this is making me wonder - dr says I have a mild - moderate case of candida, though until yesterday I hadn't had any symptoms - tests she did were over a week ago.

    Wondering if this is getting a higher reading than normal due to the fact that I too have recently gone onto a gluten free lactose free diet - wonder if its just the body adjusting etc.

    I'm certainly not going to go eating things I shouldn't in the hope it will go away but the 'canesoral' tablet I took Friday should have worked fully by tomorrow afternoon so I guess time will tell...

    Hang on a minute.  the penny just dropped.  Gypsy, you had antibiotics.  Antibiotics are renowned for causing candida.  As soon as antibiotics are finished you should start taking acidophollus.  Antibiotics kill off all bacteria in the gut INCLUDING the good ones.  Acidophollus replaces the good bacteria lessening the likelihood of getting candida.

    tiny stitches, many things can cause it.  heat, stress, antibiotics, non cotton underwear, you need keep completely dry and hygienic.

    gypsycat - didn't you have the helicobacter virus and also needed your gall bladder removed?, and 2 days ago you had a lump on one of your ovaries.

    Maybe you need to see a specialist about all these problems instead of asking novices to diagnose your illnesses.   You could make yourself sicker by taking notice of every little detail in every post, especially if you haven't been diagnosed yet.

    streuth, is all that stuff for real? You really do need to put yourself in your drs hands and forget asking everybody else.  You won't get any better answers from here than you get from you dr.

    yes Im', seeing a Dr and speciailist. But as usual your in and out of the office in 10 minutes, 15 if your lucky and you have to wait forever to see a specialist and 9 times out of 10 their only making guesses with whats wrong with you, even though they charge an arm and a leg just for the privilege of walking into their office!

    aND YES, I did take probitotics when I was on the antibiotics and still do. My gallbladder has polyps on it and the Drs say its nothing to worry about. Can you believe that?

    and another thing, this idiot specialist i saw a week ago, not only did I not have enough time to ask him evrything I needed in the office before having to leave, when I called him the next morning to ask him some question about the meds, he hung up on me before i could even ask him a second question! So yes, with the amount of time you spend just trying to get in to see these so callled wonderful "speciliaists", what is one to do about all this! The health system in this country stinks! I could tell you more  stories but I'd be here all day!
