I have had oral thrush for 11 months. It has not responded properly to 2x 2week courses of fluconazole, i see a brief improvement initially but it stops improving before the course is finished. After exhausting all treatments, drops, gel, tablets my GP requested bloods, 6 phlebotomist appointments later Still no blood as my veins collapse and i just end up with horrendous swellings and bruising. I havent had antibiotics for years, no inhalers or any of the obvious causes. 11 weeks ago I was referred to maxillofacial which was allegedly a 12 week waiting list. Now i found out that due to problems at the hospital, the waiting list is now 22 weeks meaning i have to wait even longer and gp tells me that after the initial appointment i will ve put on yet another list for a biopsy. He seems frustrated and quite concerned, voicing concerns about hiv (-ve test after seperating from ex 10 years ago) leukemia and hepatitis. I am feeling increasingly ill. Fatigued, loss of appetite although not losing weigt at a rapid rate, sore throat (candida can be seen in throat) the last few days im having problems swallowing solid food although maybe this could be due to relux which is a recent flare up of an old problem. I had surgery for a hiatus hernia 7 years ago, and was told this could return after this period. I am feeling quite worried and as though something more should be done by now. Im generally a fit and healthy person, not pronw to coughs and colds although i have frwquent bouts of diarrhoea of late. Apologies for this running so long but i need to know what are the appropriate things to say/request of my gp when i sew him again on wednesday after this coursw of fluconazole is finished. Thankyou
