I am not 100% sure candida is one of my problems but I have been experimenting with probiotics and I did take 1 dose of fluconazole a few days ago. I have noticed something: for a while now I've had a lingering pain right in the middle of my spine. When I take probiotics (acidophilus) this pain seems to flare up and travel up to my neck, making my neck stiff and painful. After stopping the probiotics this pain slowly goes away. Well I also notice this same effect after taking the fluconazole capsule. I thought maybe I just have a weird reaction with the acidophilus but since the fluconazole mimics the same side effects, I think that might be a clue. Has anyone else had this experience? And does anyone know what it might mean? I'd be curious to know exactly what is going on here.
