I am a 25 year old male and have been feeling poor the past two years. My symptoms include extreme brain fog, shoulder and neck pain, fatigue, dry eyes, a strange "pressure" in my forehead and sinuses, and general malaise. I have had my sinuses checked by an ENT and my bloodwork run multiple times and have been told I am in good health.
In high school I took antibiotics (doxycycline) for my skin for a long period of time. I have also experienced GI problems, although they have been alleviated in recent years by an improved in diet. Based on my research, all of these things seem to point to a candida overgrowth. However, I also recently learned about the disorder called depersonalization and I am considering that as a possible culprit since the past few years have not been great psychically.
Essentially, I am at a loss as to whether what I am feeling can be attributed to something physical (yeast overgrowth) or a mental (reaction to a difficult period in life). It may be a combination of both.
Regardless, the spacey, stoned, unreal feeling that I experience almost constantly is easily my most concerning symptom and what has me searching for a cure.
If you have any information on depersonalization disorder as it relates to candida, or any opinion on my case based on the information I have given you I would appreciate it.
