    I have seen a lot of posts about Candida. My question is has anyone actually been cured of their CFS/FM by being treated for Candida?

    in immuno-deficient people (candida is very common in those with HIV too), the body does not keep the natural balance of yeast in check. so the candida is a complication of CFS/FM. beating the yeast won't cure the CFS/FM (in my opinion, those that state otherwise, never had CFS/FM to begin with). conversely curing the immune defect that causes CFS/FM, would theoretically cure the yeast problem. but for most of us, keeping the yeast in check is an ongoing battle until the body is able to fight for itself again.

    I think a combination of things is making me feel better and the Candida treatment is one of those things. I don't think anyone think will cure FM or CFS. BUT my Ibs and constpation issues totally cleared up in 4 or 5 days. Lynn

    So far nothing has come up on my tests at the FFC except Candida. Can Candida alone make you fatigued? Yes, I know people who have gotten better on treatment. The candida was supressing their immune system.

    Could there be something genetic or a mysterious virus causing what I have? Maybe. I think it depends on the person.

    I'm hopeful though. I've been on more antibiotics in my 27 years than anyone. I used to eat all pasta, bread, candy.
    I was doing better on my second week of Diflucan until I got a sinus infection and am back on anti's. So hopefully it will help.
