Candida detox and BF infant.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My little one is now 17 days old and my body feels as thou it is falling apart. About a week after delivery I noticed that we were starting to get thrush. I imeddiatly decided to do a candida diet (not too extreme, mainly no sugars, yeast, wheat and dairy). I got a prescription for APNO, and started taking probiotics (50 billion a day). Things got worse, not better, I now have a vaginal yeast infection. I started on GSE oral and topical for me and it still got worse. Yesterday I caved and took a one dose diflucan prescription and last night was awful. I woke up with intense stomach pain, vomiting, and intense back pain in my upper to mid back. The pain was so bad in my back that I felt light headed and dizzy, almost delusional. About an hour later my blood pressure dropped and I passed out. My poor husband couldn't wake me and called an ambulance. When they arrived I was regaining consciousness. They toke my BP and it was 68/32. They started IV fluids and in about an hour my BP was back up to 102/58. The hospital did tests and everything looked fine, they have no idea what happened and sent me home. Am I detoxing? Would it cause that much stress on my body? I am thinking of trying nystatin or genetin violet for the thrush and backing off the oral GSE and reducing the probiotic amount to see if that helps. Any suggestions on what might be going on or what route I should take in fighting this?

I have heard great things about genetin violet. Have you contacted your local LLL? Or checked out kellymom.com? Both of those are good resources. Do you have access to a LC? I know its tough right now, don't give up! hug2.gif
