I've noticed with miy possible candida

Posted , 6 users are following.

that i have never actully need craving sugary foods at all really. maybe the odd fizzy drink i will want but if i ate something sweet i wont enjoy it?

i crave mostly roast dinners funnily enough (roast beef or lamb etc no pork)

but this candida is and has been here for over a year now with lumps inside my tongue (not on but actualy inside my tongue) and midly swollen nodes for same time perioid and a red rash on my face under my chin which wont go.

any ideas ? 

is this actually candida? or could it be something that looks like it? every doctor and dentist i have seen says its normal. only about 4 months ago/5  i started to nottice those lumps?

    Have you tried using a tongue scraper?  Also, do some research on something called Geographic Tongue.  As for the rash on your chin, I don't have a suggestion for that.  Good luck.

      i could say i have pretty much treid everything frm natural coconut brushing, eating drinking healthy

      i do smoke a lot of weed though alot of it. but this only ever became a problem a year ago i had a risky encounter. 

      negative 6 months later so im over that. alot of it was said to be stress (my SYMPTOMS)

      i have terrible digestive issuses along  those other symptoms 

      dont know what to do really. no doctor is insightful or knoweldgeable about anything and im worried what is going on with my body.

    Hey Joop, anymore news? I saw on a earlier post that you were to have some tests done august 11th?

    I made an account because I am having the same symptoms as you. I am also 21 and I've dealt with this for around the same amount of time also. 

    My tongue looks exactly the same, I am also experiencing the digestive issues, and a couple "small?" swollen lymph nodes(I guess you call them glands) mine are under my jawbone on the right side, and the other is on the jawline under the ear. Though mine are painless and I am not experiencing any rash. As far as activity is going I have only been with one partner for a long time so I am positive it is not std related. 

    Anyways all this really bothers me and stresses me and makes me feel older then I amrolleyes I really hope it is not a type of cancer aka lymphoma that's my biggest fear but I do not have some of the other issues either. I can't seem to get rid of the tongue thing but I only just started a complete  anti c*****a d**t yesterday. Let me know how it's going and if you find out anything.

      I also was told I had a light positive result of H. Pylori, I took the test where they have you blow into a balloon and read it. I've been through a triple antibiotic a couple weeks ago and while my reflux has certainly improved things still are not how I want them.

      Hey Smith, Really sorry for the late reply!

      I think i had just a neck US. (ultrasound done) and everything seemed normal. to be honest any doctor that i have seen has always been forgein and speaks hardly any english ( i am from england btw). and i feel they don't understand me, vise versa really. anyway. everything seemed normal in that department *(there only option was for me to go and get a pain INJECTION (which i had never heard of one till that day, kind of chuckled at it asked why would i do that when i dont know what is causing the pain/symptoms. they said the swelling of my glands where at normal size.. i don't get why a year of mildly swollen glands that hurt alot sometimes to the point i cant even move my neck (same area as yours except they change size and ones behind my ear come and go (and i have both 2 lymp nodes swollen on the right side and left side of under my jawline.

      IM not going to any doctors or dentist's anymore. im going to an ENT oon the 18th of october with photos of my tongue from a year ago till now. and just to explain what has happened and if i could get some tests done. i still need to test for hpylori

      I haven't really got any good news im afraid... still waiting on what is causing this. 

      i will be getting back to you as soon as i hear anything. 

      and please upload a photo of your tongue that i could look at please@?

      thanks! hope you're feeling better!

      is your partner a male/female?  are you male?female?. 

      has you and your partner tested together? u said you know 100percent not std related?

      i have an gastro appointment on the 9th october. im going to discuss having an edoscopy and colonoscopy im not taking any antibiotics. it never works in my eyes i never get sick or ill. and thats what i find weird about all this too. its just symptoms no actual sickness or vomiting or anything.
