Have you been snooging cod? Could it be glandular F?

(Yes, GP)

Am sure the thrush and general tiredness and unwellness are linked

BreeVanderCampLGJ Sat 02-Aug-08 14:42:28

Pain is very debilitating hence the tiredness, but I would reccomend a trip to your GP to get something to hammer the thrush.

Have you been checked for anaemia? Could be the cause of your tiredness

As for the thrush - try to cut down on yeasty and sugary products in your diet. The bugs that cause thrush thrive on this and cutting it down does work - I've tried it myself!

Get your thyroid function tested. The tiredness could well be underactive thyroid.

bowels and waterworks?

Could be thyroid problem - deffo something immunological (no shit sherlock!)

Deffo get to GP - thrush for 4 weeks is not normal surely (I never get it so not sure).

Another one telling you to see the GP - doesn't sound wishy washy at all. You sound very run down - the thrush, the ulcers etc etc - and it certainly warrants a visit.

Have you had a cold recently? Sometimes the virus hangs around for ages afterwards, even when the cold symptoms have gone, and causes severe tiredness and lowered immune system defences. There's a proper name for this which I've forgotten.

Another thought ...

Persistent thrush can be caused by diabetes ... which can also cause tiredness.

Get thee to a GP and get some blood tests done.

i was thinking diabetes too maybe you are just so very run down everything is taking time to heal?? you done the ntural yoghurt/fanjo thing?

constancereader Sat 02-Aug-08 19:25:40

could be this if you feel thrush is linked to general fatigue?

BoysAreLikeDogs Sat 02-Aug-08 19:26:30

Malory, sorry you are feeling shite

No wonder you feel shite, what with your bad knee/thrush and sore mouth.

You have had good advice here, another vote for a visit to Dr to discuss.

constancereader Sat 02-Aug-08 19:27:44

although perhaps not if your general diet is good.

well if you don't eat too much sugar it probably won't be that anyway. It is a good job too as the candida diet is grim!

(Have you had a lot of anti-biotics in the past though? That can be a contributory factor)
