7 months ago I took a drug for acne called Accutane. Several weeks into my treatment I began to suffer from horrible side effects. During the treatment, my diet was extremely poor due to moving out on my own.
I was consuming sugar, bread, pasta, and cereal everyday. I was also drinking heavily even though I was told to not do so. I went to 3 or 4 doctors who told me the side effects were in my head, but I knew they were wrong. I began to take it upon myself to discover what I was causing these problems. It was about 3 months ago that I became truly convinced that I had found my problem -- Candida Albicans. I have experienced hair loss, extreme scalp itching and burning, eyebrow and eyelash loss, extremely itchy skin, severe depression, anxiety, inability to sleep like I used to, a nasty white coat on my tongue also known as oral thrush. I can't eat almost any foods without getting itchy or having my symptoms come back. Since discovering this I have gone to 6 or 7 doctors who have told me I don't have Candida and that it is "a made up problem". I have been following a strict diet and taking multiple supplements to try and help the kill the fungus, but have failed. I have begged doctors to prescribe me something but all refuse too. I am desperate for answers and found this online. I just want my life back.
