Hello friends! I am back! I have been living a very normal life for the past 3 years doing well on supplements etc. I still talk to my LLMD once a year I feel very lucky!

Anyways! I have a question it seeems like I have some gut issues going on.

Backstory. I was in Greece for vacation prior to going I got a cold and they gave me a z pak just in case. I would say half way through the trip I had a lot of bloating etc but chalked it up to eating a lot.

Then two days before the trip ended I got a uti and took Macrobid.

Returned to the states and self treated I know! I was doing L-glutamine, peppermint oil and digestive enzymes garlic.

I started to turn the corner on Tuesday night I went and work out. Came home and stomach was off again and off all night night and the next day. The next day I didn’t think have much of an appetitie, when I did go to the eat I had extreme pain and burning I thought I was going to vomit I had taken a digestive anzyme and peppermint oil.

Anyways called my LLMD he says gut dybosis but not sure if SIBO or CANDIDA. So doing a stool test.

Symptom:
In the morning lots of burping feels like acid
Loss of appetite
Pain and bloating upper abdomen
Lots of burping
Insomnia and some anxiety

My question is how do you know if it’s SIBO or Candida anyone have any insights? Thanks!!

The most likely would be candida since it began after two rounds of antibiotics.

Garlic would be an issue for me when it comes to acid reflux.

I would also be careful about ingesting essential oils.

It's my recollection from watching gut summits that one of the symptoms of SIBO is difficulty in tolerating fermented foods like sauerkraut, that people just don't feel comfortable when they eat fermented foods, even though such foods are supposed to be good for gut bacteria.

Candida is usually a craving for sugar and bread, since the yeast want the sugar. It can be tested for in blood and stool.

Ugh!

I cant! I was great for three years now this. I am scared its Lyme and co-infections again and I just cant go down that road! I am so sacred

Symptoms
Loss of appepite
When I eat it burns- anxiety increases after I eat
Coughing like im going to throw up but nothing comes up
Anxiety
Insomina
Chills

Doing a stool test can GUT Dybosis or SIBO really do all this.

Looking back on my past posts from April 2015 it sounds very similar...just scared

tricia...

Don’t forget about H. Pylori/chronic gastritis, etc. Bartonella loves to irritate the lining of the GI system, and perhaps this, or another infection with an affinity for the gut, has reared its ugly head in you as well.

Yes, with your recent usage of abx the most obvious choices are the gut dysbiosis and candida. However, let’s not forget too, that now having retreated your other issues with the abx, you may have also inadvertently ‘poked the TBD bear’ so-to-speak.

That’s definitely a real occurrence. I had a similar issue happen following re-treatment of Babesia this past winter (it made a mess of other infections that had been more tempered down). Also remember this: as we now well know that monotherapy for TBD can actually strengthen the bugs (train the bacterial organisms to grown drug-resistant), you may have actually waded into that territory, to boot.

Good thing that you are being worked up for your symptoms at this time. Keep us posted!

Best to you,
Told you...

anxiety
Bloating after eating
Gas
Nausea
Insomina

Muscle Weakness

Those who have suffered from SIBO and Gut Dybosis
Did you experience symptoms other than stomach issues?

Sibo would require antimicrobial herbs or antibiotics. Have you taken any yet?

Watch your diet to reduce the chance of getting yeast from the xifaxin.
