I am not familiar with the test you mention. I do understand your frustration that you are trying to get your doctor to agree that you are in need of help. Unfortunately, they will not see it that way. If you provide your dr. with tests , they will claim the tests are not valid. They seem to only give credence to tests they order themselves. So called " experimental tests" will not be taken seriously. I have been down this route. I had a bunch of tests and took the results to my Dr. and got a few laughs out of him, but nothing else. I have been desperately ill myself and am only now recovering , with no help from my Dr. I might add.
Drs. do not believe this illness exists and there is nothing you can do to change their minds unless you have a very open minded Dr., otherwise you might as well find yourself a holistic dr. or naturopath if you can , or treat it on your own like most of us have on this board.
As far as dying from candida...a seriously compromised immune system refers to those with AIDS or cancer not the average population. As a matter of fact people with compromised immune system die within days of coming down with candida. I ahve had this time for 7 years. As sick as I was , feeling as though I was lingering near death for months, but I did not die. As a matter of fact my vitals and all my blood work was absolutely perfect. Why...because they are not looking for the right thing. My fear was that if I did get any worse and wind up in the er, I would probably die there because no one would know what was wrong with me. I accepted I might very get sicker and sicker and develop more and more things if I did not put a stop to it.
As sick as you are, and I was too, Drs still will not think there is anything wrong with you. No matter what you complain about. Unless you are unconscience and on a stretcher forget about it, they are useless.
The best thing you can do is educate yourself. Because even if you go to a naturopath, you would be surprised how they even recommend doing things that are risky to your treatment if you are that ill. Much of the learning process is reading , researching, especially symptoms that you have as they relate to what your body is asking you for. Then take care of yourself. And do not be surprised if family thinks you are crazy. I get no support from my family, they just stare at me or give blank looks. I have had to cut myself off completely when I was really ill. But now that I am better I am around them more. but still, they act like, I can't be all that sick because I look fine.
They have no clue, neither do drs. That is why we all seek eachothers support in the boards. We bounce ideas off one another etc. We would be happy to give you info and help you thru also. You will get better, you just need a direction and a battle plan.
