    does anyone here have yeast infections often... if so, does it go along with FM?

    I have them lately! Have been on and off of antibiotics since last Oct. I also take Prednisone and use inhalers for asthma. Apparently these things make you more prone to Yeast infections. I am not sure if it goes along with FM?
    I just wish I could get rid of them.
    I also get them in my mouth, boy does that hurt!

    they are because my sugar is not under control well enough.

    I am a diabetic, and if your sugar is not under control, you get a lot of yeast infections and yeast rashes in damp places.

    I don't know if it's a fibro thing or not!

    problem is some aspects of these are still very controversial so are dismissed out of hand by many docs.

    I too get it in my mouth and find it painful and bothersome.

    There is a seperate candidiasis message board here, might be worth looking up.

    Cheers
