PLEASE HELP ME THANK YOU
IF YOU CANT ANSWER CAN YOU PASS ME ON TO ELSE
WHY CANT YOU ANSWER
I was away from my computer.
who diagnosed you with having candida albicans?
where on your body was this found
candida would not cause red hot puffy face dizziness and ringing in ears
how old are you?
you need to see a conventional doctor and get blood testing to check for hormone imbalance and inflammatory conditions and autoimmune disorders.
do you have a GP doctor you see regularly?
HAD SALIVA TEST AT HOSPITAL WAS CHECKED FOR EVERYTHING ELSE AND TESTS WERE NORMAL IHAVE CANDIDA BOOK AND IT SAYS U CAN GET THESE SYMPTOMS
I am not sure what candida book you are reading.
you should bring it to your doctors and see what they say about this candida book.
I HAVE HAD IT A LONG TIME
I bet they will disagree with the book as well.
I know you have had these symptoms for a long time
but routine blood testing does not include testing for autoimmune disorders and inflammatory conditions
you need ESR and ANA testing
dry mouth can be from sjorgren's syndrome. which needs to be tested for.
you didn't tell me how old you were.
have you had thyroid hormone testing as well?
what is your TSH level?
WHAT DOES ESR AND ANA TEST FOR
to check for inflammation in the body and a screening test for autoimmune conditions.
ESR is erythrocyte sedimentation rate.
ANA is anti nuclear antibodies where your body makes antibodies against your own cells.
I ALSO HAD METALLIC POISONING
how was it treated?
LEAD,TIN,MRCURY,CESIUM,ANTIMONY, SULFUR, RUBIDIUM,THALLIUM WITH CLORELLA TABS WHAT IS SJORGRENS SYNDROME
sjorgren's syndrome is an autoimmune condition which causes dry mouth.
who diagnosed you with having all of these heavy metals?
did you bring this test result to your GP and other doctors for review?
what did they say?
I need to look at your blood testing to give you more information.
MY TSH LEVEL WAS NORMAL
that is good.
I need the testing results from your heavy metal testing.
you didn't tell me what your doctors said when you showed them your heavy metal testing results.
are you willing to see your GP doctor and ask for more testing like ESR, ANA, c reactive protein testing.
I ALSO HAVE BLURRED VISION AND SORE TONGUE
sore tongue can be due to acid reflux
do you have acid reflux?
blurred vision can be due to blepharitis
sore tongue can also be from sjorgren's syndrome which can cause dry mouth and sore tongue.
WHATS THE TEST FOR SJORGRENS
a lip biopsy and blood testing checking for ANA and ESR and C reactive protein.
I DO HAVE A FLESHY LUMP BETWEEN MY TONGUE AND TEETH HAD IT ALONG TIME
WHY HAVE YOU STEPPED OUT
PLEASE CAN YOU AN ANSWER
IT IS NOT PAIN FUL
it is very early in the morning when you were asking these questions.
3-5AM USA time
you are in the UK.
I am in the USA.
fleshy lump between the tongue and teeth is most likely a floor of mouth cyst which is benign.
it is ok
what other questions do you have?
I am up now

thanks for using JustAnswer.com
IS IT STILL WORTH ASKING FOR A TEST
because you are having symptoms
red hot face
as you mentioned before
CAN YOU HAVE SJORGRENS WITHOUT BLOCKED SALIVA GLAND
yes, you can have sjorgrens syndrome without a blocked saliva gland.
III HAD SIMILAR PROBLEM IN 2008 AND THEY SAID THAT THERE WAS SOME TENDERNESS ROUND SUBLACTOID DUCT
do you mean the submandibular duct?
there is no sublactoid duct.
there is a submandibular duct under your tongue in your mouth.
SORRY IMEANT THE SUBMANDIBULAR ITHINK I THINK IT WAS THEY WERE GOING TODOA SUBLACTOID TEST
do you have other questions?
CAN SJORGRENS GIVE YOU WEAKNESS IN YOUR HANDS
but a pinched nerve in your neck can cause weakness in your hands.
do you have weakness in both hands?
IALSO GET PINS AND NEEEDLES IN MY HANDS
pins and needles sensation can be from a pinched nerve in your spine as well.
you should ask your doctors to obtain an MRI scan of your neck and upper chest spine and nerves to check for pinched nerves.
I ALSO ROTA CUFF DISEASE IN LEFT SHOULDER
usually that would not cause pins and needles in the hands
