I use to eat: Meat and vegetables during the week (rarely beans and rice). (basically 2 big meals a day) Weekend was more loose with some pizzas, pastas and chocolates (a lot of alcohol) Lots of coffee in both periods. Lots of pain. (started cymbalta) Then: Tried to eat more often (5 - 6 times a day), more fruits and carbs. I started drinking green smoothies in the morning (kale, cucumber, celery, ginger, some fruits, goji berry flaxseed, amaranth) Got like 50% better in something like three days (a lot less pain, less fatigue, stopped getting ill or sore throats) Then: Decided to go off Cymbalta It looked like some pain was returning (horrible withdrawl effects) So: Cut coffee, sugar, gluten, meat, dairy. Went almost raw, loooooots of raw veggies and lots of fruits. Still rice, beans, potatoes and chickpeas. Success getting of Cymbalta after one month. The pain got better again (maybe not as good as before but still) But: After two months started having horrible stomach pains and bloating. Sometime right after eating something (specially some fruits, beets etc...) Everything got worse, pain, fatigue, sleep. It's been two months now and even though my gut improved a little with suplements and vitamins, it still hurts and now I have constantly vision problems and brainfog, wich I never had before. My skin it's bad with acne, I got some genital fungal infection (wich went away with candicort). Does it look like Candida to you guys? I saw some docs who didn't help me at all and now a alternative Doc said it is candida and other fungal infections. He prescribed a lot of antifungals and liver flush.
