I went to a gastroenterologist a few days ago, and mentioned my yeast theory, only to be treated like a simple child without a basic understanding of logic. What was my yeast theory? I had horrible IBS, or so I thought, where I couldn't eat anything without getting an upset stomach. Then I received a yeast infection and after I took the pill, the following day nothing upset my belly. According to my new Gastro doctor, this was purely a coincidence.
Boy am I annoyed.
And to make matters worse, the woman told me I have IBS (even though I feel fine for the most part) and gave me a perscription.
Okay, I thought, I'll try it. You can't get better if you don't try everything right? What's the harm and hey...maybe I can eat ice cream on these pills.
I got the perscription filled and to my horror...there was a warning in the pages that taking this medication is not advised for those who have had bad reactions to anti-depressants.
Horrified that, despite mentioning all of my bad reactions and the near suicide attempt I made on them years ago, I was still perscribed an anti-depressant...I began questioning the validity of the medical profession.
What I need...is a hero. A doctor who listens and tries different things. A doctor who believes me when I say "I can't take that."
This doctor told me only that systemic candidas is only suffered by organ transplant patients, blood transfusion patients and those with AIDS.
My question is, with as little as we know about Fibromyalgia, isn't it possible that systemic candidas can be brought on by it? No? Why not? Those are the answers I want.
Who thought it was possible to suffer pain without any physical evidence of existance 20 years ago? Barely anyone. Fibro is still considered to be a myth in most of the world, and the medical community is still greatly confused by the syndrome.
It is moments like these where I feel so jaded. I just have to take a deep breath and continue the doctor hero search.
All my best to you, My Friends. I hope you far better than I on the doctor front.
98% days to you all,
