    Candida. Yup, that overgrowth condition that American doctors say "doesn't exist".

    Omg this happens to me a lot. My husband even asks me after meals how food drunk I am. I thought it was related to food intolerances or mast cells. Who knows though, seems nothing we get is well understood.

    interesting, definitely something I have never heard of until now. Yet seems to have common symptom ties with other chronic illnesses in some regard. So is it a guess to state this could be the result of full system candida infection? I think South also mentioned that, if that was the case after so long being diagnosed. As well as the kind of person you would have to see to get this properly diagnosed. It stands to wonder how he could still be sick, if it was simply treated with prescribed high doses of anti fungals ,changing the diet, and re forming a proper gut colony.

    I have had similar problems but none of the comprehensive stool analysis I've done ever reported positivity for any yeast infection. Just minor imbalances of the good flora, not even particularly bad. Yet I cannot tolerate any yeast, not even from a mile away and probiotics usually make me feel bad, with the exception of bifidobacteria which don't cause bad reactions, but also don't help.

    It's a complicated issues...

    I have read about people who have this problem getting arrested and convicted of DUI, because there's even enough alcohol on their breath to register on the breath meter administered by law enforcement.

    I've literally caught a buzz off of a cheeseburger/fries/milkshake meal. It never happened a lot, though, and hasn't happened in long time.
