Smelly Groin, Metallic Taste, Craving Sweets, Terrible Headaches

Two years ago I went to work as normal but when I got there I got dizzy and had an incredible thirst (like nothing I'd ever experienced). I felt nauseous as well as experiencing a waxy feeling on my hands and upper thighs/groin. Throughout the morning it got worse and I ended up with a very offensive ammonia odor emminating from my groin area (whether I was sweating or not). This odor has been with me intermittently and with varying degrees ever since. My abdomen remains sore when pressed and I crave for sweet things (not the norm for me). I did follow a candida diet (for three weeks) from the internet and experienced very bad headaches (not normal for me). I have spent thousands of dollars conducting tests/scans etc. only to draw a blank. I have been diagnosed (and since cleared) of H. Pylorie. I have an eczema type rash above my eye brow and my eye sight is often blurry/fuzzy when watching TV. My groin area often sweats (beyond the norm for the temperature of any given day) and the odor from the sweat (although different from the ammonia odor) is quite repulsive. I have a metal taste in my mouth and suffer from bad breath. 
I have taken a couple of courses of antibiotics and Metronidazole seemed to be the only one that worked (briefly). Whatever I have I'm certain I have had it for many years but has only 'erupted' over the past two years. 
Could you please let me know if you have ever come across anyone with the same symptoms (especially the ammonia odor) and if these symptoms are related to Candida.

The first thing I would do if I was you is get your liver enzymes checked. Sometimes it can be a problem with the liver. If you're on a candida diet, having some sort of ammonia smell isn't that unusual when you really think about it because you are not eating carbohydrates which fuel your body.

Make sure to closely monitor everything you are eating and drinking so you will have a better idea as to what is causing the ammonia odor.
