See if there are any infectious disease doctors in your area. It might not be contagious, but, they handle the non run of the mill conditions. You could look up the center for disease control in Atlanta, GA and they could probably get you to somebody good in your area. It's intitials are CDC.
Hi Phil444: I recently commented on a post from someone having a systemic fungal infection named "aspergillosis". From past experience with my sister, my suggestion to you is to see an "Infectious Disease Specialist". In doing so, please question what medication they are giving you or intend to give you. Should it be "cortico steroids", please reconsider and do not accept this as a possible treatment for this condition, should you indeed have this fungal infection within your body. Best of luck to you-
First, you are using the wrong term. You most likely have Candida Fungal Overgrowth, not Systemic. There is no such thing as a low-grade systemic candida infection with mild symptoms. Invasive candida infections are characterized by fever and shock, including low blood pressure, an elevated heart rate, respiratory distress, multi-organ distress, and sometimes a systemic rash or skin peeling. This is a dangerous, even potentially fatal, condition.
During my 3 year journey to find a conventional doctor to diagnose & treat my fungal overgrowth, I've learned a lot on my own. First & foremost is that the doctors know very little about yeast or fungal overgrowth. Testing can be very expensive & the results are often times misleading. Doctors see it as an illness, sometime one catches. Rubbish! Your ill health has brought it on. Candida is not the cause of your poor health. The Standard American Diet (SAD) coupled with anti-biotics, steroids, etc. has degraded your health to the point that the only defense your body has is to create this fungus to fight the toxins.
You need to get on a strict anti-candida diet, coupled with the correct vitamins & supplements. Bee Wilder has an awesome FREE plan that has significantly improved the quality of my health over the past 15 months. It is very strict as to which foods are allowed, as most of our diet feeds the fungus or yeast. As more & more symptoms appear, you will have no other choice.
I am afraid it is extremely difficult to get proper treatment for a fungal infection. I have seen numerous infectious disease doctors who never even seem to consider the existence of a fungal infection unless the patient has HIV. My immune system is extremely weak due to cancer treatment, but they truly don't seem to care. I became infected by multiple species of fungi after having a biopsy in 2012 and am still growing the same fungi as of June, 2015. I have sought treatment in 3 different states, spent so much money, had more surgeries, and doctors continue to prescribe antibiotics which only help the fungal infection spread. I finally found a doctor who realizes the seriousness of my situation (he is a colleague of my mother who is an MD). He's sending me to Mayo clinic. I have heard many positive stories from people who have gone there when all else has failed.
You do not actually need any type of referral to go there, so if you are still seeking help (and based on experience, I'm afraid it is likely that you are) I would suggest giving Mayo a try. It is amazing how fungi can completely destroy a person. I hope you are surviving ;)
