    Why don't you get tested for this? There are doctors that will take urine and stool samples & send them to a lab that tests for candida, parasites, etc. ---Have you taken lots of long courses of antibiotics in the past? That can predispose you to candida overgrowth. I am in the process of being tested by my allergist for candida overgrowth; otherwise, you are just speculating based on your symptoms, which also could fit a profile for CFS without candida. If you have it, you'll likely need meds. plus strict adherence to the candida diet---but rather than guess, I'd find someone who'll give you a definitive answer.

    Good luck & I hope you feel better,
