I've been doing a bit of self research on candida, for the last 6-7 months have been quite miserable with so many vague and seemingly unrelated symptoms. Primary trigger was a continued 'genital irritation and burning/discomfort' which was fleeting on and off (I am a male 32 years -asian) - it persisted badly but was not uti as per urine tests.
Most doctors suspected prostatitis as I had other assoc symptoms soon- went on about 4-5 weeks of antibiotics...things improved but within a month am having a series of digestive issues - constant bloating, a bit of brain fog, heartburn etc...
All through this, I've have had varied vague muscle and joint ache, sometimes tingling, throbbing sensations.
The urinary symptoms have been the weirdest...it has been mostly non voidal irritation..sporadic. I've had flu like symtoms too (without temperature)...sudden body aches, feeling fatigued and drowsy...etc..
Doctors have been finding it tough to diagnose. Should I test (blood/stool) for candida? Do guys of my age get it...seems rare though?!
Any other possibilities?
