Autoimmune disorders and candida infections

I am afflicted with a myriad of autoimmune issues. About 3 months ago I got a bad case of thrush. Recently I got my annual flu shot and since then I have been ill ever since. Low grade fever, loss of appetite, dry mouth, decreases taste sensation and when food gets to my stomach it sits there like a lump for a couple of hours. Eventually my food processes thru the bowel but then 75% of the time I have diarreah. I keep wanting to feel good for a week or so. Any suggestions?

Re: Autoimmune disorders and candida infections

Was your thrush due to an antibiotic? Have your doctors done blood work to make sure whatever medications you are taking for the autoimmune disease isn't weekening your immune system? Immunosuppressants will do that. Your cursed for being sick all the time anyways, with autoimmune disorders. I'm sorry, I know the feeling.

Sounds like you need to see a gastroenterologist. Maybe you should have a test done to check for gastroperesis, and maybe an endoscopy/colonoscopy. I would definetly check into getting a referral to a stomach doctor if you don't already have one.
