About Me: Female, 58, Bearsville, NY, member since Dec 2009
Was exposed to black mold for many years without knowing it (was in a long-term rental). Have suffered from candida, leaky gut syndrome, chronic sinus infections and allergies/asthma with constant antibiotics for 10 years. The sinus infections stopped 1 1/2 months aft
[More]er moving from the rental. Developed chronic shingles in my sciatic nerve with flu-like symptoms and stiff neck around the same time as the sinus infections. Sinus infections stopped when moving from the rental, but shingles haven't - 12 years of hell!!! Also suffer with severe anxiety/panic attacks, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. My brain feels like it's 'shutting down'. 3 negative Lyme Disease tests. Am considering spinal tap to rule out undiagnosed Lyme Disease. Can you help me?
I had black mold in my walls for a couple of years and when I did a bunch of antibiotics I came down with what I figured out later was candida, but tests are not perfect, so my doctor and I challanged it with antifungals, vfend, just to see if I got worse or dieoff, but used a well thought out natural system, diet and rotate at least 5 strong antifungals every 4 days, like biamonte suggests, takes time though.
Gidget, it looks like we might be in buisness, this weekend i have been rough, but it looks like my rash is on its way back, i just cant wait for the blisters to come, so i can get them swabbed.
This graves as been 12 years off pure hell for me. The rash ive just learned to live with but i think they are connected, somewere along the line.
I also get other rashes too. Have you ever had like itchy skin, feeling like youve some sort off allergy or something?
Can i ask do you ever get burning pain? i get it in my liver kidneys knees etc.........
Keep me posted
