10. Sensitivity to Vitamins - We have tried DOZENS of vitamins, natural, organic, conventional, you name it, I kept a close journal and realized every time we took a multivitamin, if it contained vitamin A (either Beta Carotene, or Vitamin A Palmitate) it didn't matter which type of vitamin A, I would get HUGE boils on my back, chest, arms, and jawline, my skin would also dry out completely and within 24 hours my skin would literally FLAKE off like hyper exfoliation. I also noticed if I took a multi-vitamin containing Vitamin B12 or B5 the same reaction would happen, even in low low doses.. and even if I took vitamins that didn't contain B12 ot Vitamin A I would still feel extremely fatigued and horribly sick within hours, even taking them with digestive enzymes and food doesn't help.
11. Sensitivity to sound and fragrances - I suddenly became sensitive to all sound, I could hear frequencies other people couldn't, a buzz sound from a fluorescent light was debilitating, smells gave me mood swings, rapid violent angry mood swings, someones perfume would suddenly spark a fit of confusion, blurred vision, and mood swings.
12. Fatigue - We sometimes sleep 14 hours and do not feel rested, I get tired extremely easily now, and after I eat even a small meal, forget it, I need to sleep for hours.
13. Water - I found that drinking FIJI brand water made some of my symptoms go away temporarily. I experimented with this and found that normal spring water did not help the symptoms. I came to find that FIJI water contains 85MG of colloidal silica per liter. Was the silica helping my symptoms be less severe? I read that silica almost works like a detoxer.
14. Hot flashes/sensitivity to hot/cold - When we eat sugar we get hot flashes, cold sweats, hot sweats, but it seems random and the hot flashes are worse when our tongue coating is at its strongest coating.
A temporary remedy - Through trial and error I found that taking Colostrum (IGG containing supplement), Chlorella, niacin (for the cold hands and feet), made my fatigue much less, and cleared up my skin, as long as I followed a natural diet. If I ate red meat and or pork I would get boils on my back within hours and if I ate steak, it was a much faster response, within 35 minutes of eating steak I would get a dime sized red flat mark between my eyebrows that would fade gradually over 7 days. I tested this theory with the steak. Everytime I ate steak..flat, red, dime-sized mark between my eyebrows???.. What in the world could cause this? Hormones in the meat? This wasn't a food allergy my throat wasn't closing up. One of my doctors insisted it was systemic candida yet there was no blood work to prove this, they put us on nystatin for months, the tongue coating never went away and we felt worse, we tried the fabled "candida diet", we felt 10x worse. Finally we did a few rounds of diflucan with liver testing in between refills. We felt like we were literally dying in the first 2 weeks as every symptom was 100x worse. My doc recommended I take activated charcoal to help absorb the supposed "die off" that was occuring from the candida. Interestingly, my skin became crystal clear, no boils, even the tongue coating started to disapear. A month after stopping diflucan, the coating came back and the symptoms are even worse than before! They have tested us for everything from Thyroid T3, T4, TSH, Free T3 & T4, Cortisol, IGG, IGH, HIV, all STDS, ACTH, Lyme Disease, Sedementation tests, etc. All tests came back normal, including the immunity test, I thought surely my immune system must be compromised. My sister and alot of people in my family have a pituitary tumor, thyroid disorders, and adrenal disorder, but all the blood work related to those conditions are negative, and even if it was positive how would that explain how my fiancee and my old ex contracted this mystery illness from me after sex? The most important issue of all this is how my fiancee developed ALL the same symptoms as I did. Interestingly when were both young we lived in the basements of our parents house where we were both exposed to massive amounts of mold (black & green) for about 5 years each. The mold was thick in our old bedrooms and you could see it on the walls. The doctors think the mold exposure mixed with antibiotics created a breeding ground for candida. I wanted scientific proof so they did a culture on our tongues to test it for candida, it came back negative! Why would it be negative if the coating appears when all our symptoms are at it's worst? Why did my fiancee and my old ex develop ALL these specific symptoms only after they had sex with me? We have no stds, blood work for both of us looks normal, yet all these symptoms exist. We thought it might be the environment so we moved, symptoms stayed and have not improved. The one thing we both know for sure if that sugar consumption in any way, bread, candy, ice cream, alcohol, (organic sugar causes a mild increase), massively increases the severity of ALL symptoms. We've been tested for diabetes that is negative as well! We've both even become synchronized were when my head pressure is at it's worst, so is my fiancee's!.. What the hell is going on with us? No one seems to know. We both stay up until 5am everynight because we don't get tired before then, we both sleep till about 1:30pm and work 2-10pm. We've also had allergy testing, interestingly enough Soy, cottonseed etc. All came up as allergens which I knew I had before I got tested. The only symptom my fiancee doesn't seem to get as bad as me are the boils. If they get them they are not as bad as mine are and often only last a day or so where as mine last for weeks. But were both sensitive to vitamins, have cold hands, feet, depression, anxiety mood swings, etc.. & this all started for my fiancee after sexual intercourse, same as my ex. Were both in a very happy. calm relationship, we do have random disagreements (who doesn't?) but nothing warranting anxiety. I have felt as though my mind has been living in a dream world, detached, confused, with severe brain fog since 10/2006, my fiancee now feels the same way after we had sex, they said they had horrible head pressure a few days after we had sex the first time and woke up the next day with all the same symptoms. Did I transmit something to my partner, and to my partner from the past? Why isn't anything detectable through blood work and why do the doctors all say "I don't know whats wrong with you two"?. Are they missing some key tests? The symptoms seem to be getting worse every month and sometimes we both stay in bed all day and sleep 15 hours wasting the day till 8pm at night and it's like we can't even get out of bed were so fatigued. The only thing keeping the symptoms slightly at bay at the moment is that we are still taking activated charcoal. We don't want to take it long term, but why should have to? If the charcoal absorbs toxins etc. What is it absorbing that alleviates our symptoms? If we stop taking the charcoal for just one night, the next day the symptoms are all back full force and sometimes worse!
PLEASE GOD HELP US
also, we both randomly sometimes get a "tickle" feeling in the upper part of our head when the head pressure is active, almost feeling like something is moving around
Hi, well what a post, it sounds to me like you are suffering with systemic candida, and to get rid of this condition, takes a lot of time, and true committment to avoiding sugar and yeast,
The problems candida can cause are awful and debilitating, especially if you have a weak immune system as well.
You might need more anti -fungals, to try to at least bring this under control, and the die off period can be worse than he candida, causing a range off awful symptoms.
Candida can go on to cause allergies, and another condition alongside candida is leaky gut.
Try plenty of pro=biotics, and five-lac is very good. also a good garlic supplement is a good anti-fungal, and acidophillus, and grapefruit seed.
Also yeast infections, can come with abnormal hormone balance in he body, have you been checked for diabetes? and had a full hormone panel done?
Also an Ige for allergies,
They say it takes a long time to feel better, but in the long run, im sure it eases the candida overgrowth.
There is a good website candida uk, which may be valuable to you.
Hope this is off some help.
