I have always thought my symptoms have matched Candida very closely. They all began at the same time around the age of 11. As a child, I drank enormous amounts of fruit juice and very little water. I think that's what caused my overgrowth.
Since sticking to the modified diet, my symptoms have definitely improved. Before this protocol when I was only taking antifungals, I did have die-off reactions to garlic. Since the addition of probiotics and enzymes, I am not experiencing dieoff anymore.
In terms of a more detailed list of symptoms:
Eczema that does not go away
Chronic post nasal drip (always spitting out mucus). This is probably the most annoying symptom.
General odor coming from nose at times
Foul-odored smegma on the penis
Nail fungus on toes
Mild feeling of reflux after meals
Fatigue and brain fog (goes away whenever I start exercising)
Stool that is sometimes mushy and during the school year when I was stressed, I had some mucous in it. I googled "candida stool", and my stool does not match the pictures.
If this is not candida, I would be interested in what it could be. A stool test is not an option because my parents do not believe this is an issue. However, these symptoms greatly affect my daily life. Besides all these symptoms, I am athletic and play high-intensity sports daily.
