I have been on the protocol for about 1 yr now. I felt better the first of August while taking 10 days of Flagyl. Then ragweed season started. Feel horrible again. Swollen, toxic, achy, yeasty, hot and flushed, exhausted, which is the fibro and yeast is worse. I started back on allergy shots (took for 15 years) but it takes months for it to help. I'll start feeling better after the first frost. In Memphis that could take til late November! I am beginning to wonder if I have some fungal something because the Flagyl seems to help now. Would make sense because I was on continous antibiotics for chronic sinusitis for 18 yrs before CAP.
Possibly the fungus makes the yeast worse but it must be something other than candida because I've been on Diflucan this time for the whole time on the CAP. 100mg once a day. Still get yeast. My doc prescribed (sorry guys) Estrace cream for insertion. She said that area of yeast could be caused by lower estrogen after menopause. It works but you have to do it 2-3 times a week. I hate being old. Of course when I turned 50 my son said "you are old Mom" and I said "you are only 18 yrs behind me". I can't wait until he turns 40! I think I'll mail him something each day leading up to his bday, Geritol, stool softner, old eyeglasses, hair color, etc. That would be great!
