Anyone ever short of breath? I am. I've read this as a symptom on many Candida sites, but it's scaring me. I feel out of breath really easy. Also my ears feel plugged up, and I know this is probably rare with Candida, but I've read it can be a symptom, is fever and chills. Just a low grade fever, but nonetheless, makes me uncomfortable. I also get a symptom of dry mouth and throat. I don't know if I'm getting a flare up or die off. I hate these symptoms. The make me scared like I'm dying. Other symptoms like itching and fatigue don't scare me nearly as much. I hate this.
