Hey guys, its been a hell of a ride for me this year. Im 21 years old and I was self diagnosed earlier this year with candida. I got all the symptoms (itchy skin, dry skin, sugar cravings, brian fog, sinus, fatigue, constipation). It was really bad for about a month until I decided to take terbinafine because Ive also had nail fungal infection for many years. Since I started taking the medication most of my symtpoms disappeared although I still feel them pretty mildly sometimes.
It's been 2 months taking the medication and I havent had significant side effects from what Im concerned. I can now eat sugar or fatty foods and not feel like crap like when I was with candida. Although lately for the past month almost Ive been having constipation. Its hard for me to go to the bathroom and its really hard.
I havent had access to a doctor since I dont have an insurance and its very expensive. I was able to get a blood test not too long ago and everything came to normal. I dont know if the doctor that reviewed my test tested me for candida. I mostly thought my symptoms were associated with hypothyroid but thats not the case at all. So my question is if is terbinafine effective at treating candida? Should I be concerned of my symptoms coming back after stopping the medication? Is the constipation a candida symptom or its simply a side effect or bad diet?
Also, on January I stopped drinking alcohol because I started reacting very weird to it. Im a student, so drinking and partying is a regular part of my life. I was drinking pretty constant on weekends for the past months and on January after a weekend of binge drinking I got these pretty nasty symptoms that freaked me out. They turned out to be withdrawal symptoms from what I learned online. Since then, I drank like 2 more times (moderately) after that and same thing happened. Of course it wasnt as bad as I didnt drink significant amounts of alcohol.
Im pretty confused and ignorant about what is going on with me. Can anybody relate? Please share your thoughts and help my anxious mind. Thanks!!
