After MANY tests the doctors were not sure. But I'm convinced it is a Candida Yeast infection in my gut (Google "Candida"). Need to take HIGH quality PROBOTICS (the type that are kept in the refrigerator) - take 2 or 3 times the regular dose, stay away from ALL WHEAT, RYE, BARLEY, YEAST, FERMENTED FOODS, VINEGAR...... eat Yogurt with Probiotics and vegatables and HIGH PROTEIN FOODS.
If you have your blood tested you may very likely be low in Vitamin D and B's & Iron (your gut cannot abssorb the nutrients in the food becuase of the yeast infelction)! Need to take supplements. It will take months to rid the gut of the yeast infection but you will start to notice an incredible imporvement on feeling less fatigue and not being bloated all the time (I could barley bend over to feed the dog!!!) in just a week or two. I'm probably the only man in history that has any idea what a women most go through being 9 months pregnant!!!
The doctors tested me for parasites.... NEGATIVE..... Tested me for Celiac Disease.... NEGATIVE.... performed Ultra sound of Abdomen..... NEGATIVE..... did colonoscopy.... NEGATIVE!.... Tested for Lactose Intolerance.... NEGATIVE!
I had had Lyme Disease 1 year prior and had been on Doxycycline for 6 weeks. I'm convinced the antibiotics destroyed the good FLORA in my gut and the Candida took over. Do you have toe nail fungus? That's Candida! Do you have itchy skin rashes? Could be Candida. Do you have Athletes Foot? That's Candida! Do you have vaginal or Anal itching?? Very likely Candida!
I thought I was going crazy and the Doctors just wanted to keep doing tests.
Google "candida" or "Bloating for no reason"..... that's how I began to learn what I had.
You'll want to find a Good Quality health food store or Holistic Practioner who can guide you on doing a "Liver Cleanse" and a "Intestinal Cleanse" combined with Probiotics and Vitimans, Minerals, Fish Oil.
I thought I had lost everything........ I'm now starting to feel alive again!
Good Luck to those suffering this HORRIBLE and distressing disease...... I'm finally able to leave my house and not look like a pregnant man!!!
I'd love to hear from others..... it's really horrible sitting at home thinking there is no hope or solution and that no one can tell you what you're suffering from!!!
Best of Luck!
