fibro and internal thrush

Postby welshwolverine1969 » Mon Apr 30, 2012 3:13 pm

hi my name is jules i am a newbie to this site but not new to fibro i was diagnosed in 2010... they said it was the grief and shock of my mam dying that brought it on.. the doctor gave me a print out from the internet and sent me home...i hadnt even heard of it before so it was a bit off a shock to find out that all the pain i had wasnt the grief playing tricks with my head that it was in fact real and was not going away...took a lot to come to terms with..i am unable to take any meds at the moment as i am really sensative so am waiting to go to pain clinic although this seems to be a slow process applied for dla and got turned down so i have give up on that ...but getting back to my heading i have for the last 2 years been suffering with internal thrush which i might add is driving me insane i have had no end of tablets etc and it still doesnt want to go anywhere has anyone else suffered from this and could it be linked to having fibro does anyone know cheers jules x

hello. i get vaginal thrush every month before my period. to prevent it i used to take capsules of good bacteria in capsule form from a health food store. they have to be kept refrigerated so if they aren't in a fridge in the shop don't buy them. i must admit that i forgot i took them and that may explain the thrush returning. thanks for reminding me.

cutting out yeast helps as well as sugar. a low GI diet and plenty of live yogurt is the best protection. alternatively there are anti-fungal pills available on prescription. i am often prescribed a 5 day course.
best wishes, Adele

:wave: :wave: Jules and :welcome: to the forum :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing:

I was going to ask you the same question about your OH being treated in case it was being passed between both of you. Might be something to look into as a possibility for you being reinfected.

I've had times when I've had repeated or extended bouts of it, and like you found that the single OTC stuff wasn't effective. I went to see my GP about it eventually, and I was given a week long course of the oral treatment to take. Touching wood and :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: aside from a couple of very minor itchy flares, I've been OK and not had anything else happen. This might also be something to consider seeing your GP about if you haven't already had a longer course of treatment.

Hi all, I think thrush is very common with Fybromyalgia. I don't get it in the usual place but on my tongue on days when my other symptoms are worse. Staying off any sugar, vinegar, wheat, alchahol, caffiene, starch (rice, potato etc) and eating plenty of plain yoghurt helps. I have tried acidophylus and kefir which also help but can't at the mo being pregnant so feeling extra rough and having to take each day at as time. I think thrush is just another symptom of Fybromyalgia but 'was' thought of as a possible cause too. Eating healthily, rest and reduced stress certainly improve things although very difficult at times. Hope this helps :-)

A friend of mine kept getting thrush & was always sore, someone told her to apply some natural youghart, she was amazed by the way it worked for her. Might be worth a try. :-D

hi
:wave:
just a thought
do you have a bath with bubble bath in ??
or anything that is to scented when washing ?

it was that that was causing my thrush, it was years ago but just a thought
could also try washing with dettol soap for a little while it may help

hope you get it sorted soon cos its horrid :hugs:
