Sometimes a Systemic Yeast Infection can have light symptoms, and because of this they're dismissed as nothing to concerned about. The problem is, this allows the yeast to enter the bloodstream where a lot of different problems can eventuate and can even become a life-threatening situation.

The body naturally has a certain amount of yeast that lives in the body in small quantities and actually help the body, without doing any harm to it. There are also different types of microorganisms inside the body that are there to keep the yeast in check so an infection does not occur.

On-going stress attacks, poor choices of food, normal pregnancy changes, immune system deficiency diseases, antibiotic medications and other disease may abolish the tiny microorganisms and thereby allow the Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms to rage.

The Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms can differ from each individual, but here a few of the most usual ones:

Heavy sense of exhaustion and unusual run down feelings may arise.

1. The feelings of sensory disturbances, unusual muscle aches and pains, continual headaches, constant dizziness, and complaints of the sufferering of persistent tiredness are signs of a person with Systemic Yeast Infection.

2. Unusual or sudden sensitivity to chemicals or new food allergies.
Arising troubles which haven't occurred before with several chemicals or foods are common with those suffering from Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms.

3. Problems with the gastrointestinal tract.

On many occasions, as touched on in the previous detail of the food allergies, flatulence, inflammatory bowel disease, rectal itching, constipation, and diarrhea are the most common of the Symptoms.

It is even possible for thrush, a Yeast Infection affecting the mouth and/or throat, to develop.

4. Onset of urinary and genital problems.

5. Development of hives and skin rashes.

You could even be having a case of hives, and not know where they came from.

6. Suddenly feeling irritable or mildly depressed.

Many times people complain of Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms that include: mental confusion, feeling of being in a 'fog', difficulty focusing or concentrating, sleepness nights, memory loss, and decreased attention span.

7. Problems with the autoimmune system.

Some autoimmune disorders that normally become worse from a Systemic Yeast Infection are sarcoidosis, scleroderma, myasthenia gravis, arthritis, hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenic purpura, or systemic lupus erythematosus.

Yeast flourish on a body that is fed with sugar, refined starch, and chemical additives.
These chemicals, starches and sugars are also readily present in bread, cookies, chips and other junk foods which are a large part of many peoples diets.

When someone is under immense stress, the microorganisms in the body that control the yeast start to die off.

Anytime you think you may have a Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms, you need to check with your doctor about what tests need to be run to determine what your body's level of Yeast organism is.
All in all, remember that it's vital to know if you are dealing with a Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms so you can get the proper treatment.

    about lupus?
    If my gfr is 176.2 what does that mean? My doctor says i screened positive for lupus, and i have to see a rheumotologist. Hows my kidneys? Any other information?

    1. mgnysgtcappo

      Sounds like your kidney’s are doing just fine because your GFR is so high. They’ll continue to watch this number if you continue to have Lupus flare ups and your creatine level in your urine starts to rise.

      As far as Lupus goes, it’s an auto immune disease that affects pretty much every system in the body hence it’s called Systemic Lupus. A rheumatologist is the primary doctor in treating your Lupus and will help monitor how active it is. Flare up’s can include but are not limited to joint pain/swelling, insomnia, fever, rash, organ involvement (kidney, heart, brain, liver, lungs), increased infection rate, depression…the list goes on and on. Luckily there are a lot of new medications out there to help control the symptoms. It is very important that you have a close relationship with your doctor so that he/she can help you monitor your disease. Other specialists will have to be brought into the picture as the disease progresses. For instance, my wife (who has been diagnosed with Lupus for 15 age 15 and now 30) has a rheumatologist, a cardiologist (heart), a nephrologist (kidney), a hemotologist (blood) along with an internist/infectious disease doctor. Her disease is obviously more advanced than yours at this point as she has what is called severe organ involved Lupus. Her heart failed last year and she had to have a pacemaker/defibulator put in, at one point her creatine level was greater than 9. Her GFR hovers around 35. On paper she looks like she’s at deaths door but in actuality she’s doing well. She has her good and bad days but she lives life to the fullest. She is a dentist and is still able to practice even with her disease. Presently she’s in remission and is feeling much better.

      I tell you her story because it is a terrible example of how Lupus can attack a person’s body but also that the human spirit can rise above it and still live a fairly normal life.

      One important side note. Since you’ve been diagnosed with Lupus you need to be tested for Antiphospholipid syndrome. This disease ‘piggybacks’ with Lupus and is present in about 50% of Lupus patients. Presently only about 25% of Lupus patients are actually tested for the disease. Doctors seem to be severely undereducated in it’s prevalance. APS is diagnosed with a simple blood test. If you have it you will need to take a blood thinner such as warfarin as it causes blood clots. It is believed to be responsible for many Lupus related deaths as it often goes untreated. It can cause a stroke, heart attack, or embolism. Please get yourself tested for this disease immediately by simply asking your doctor to order the test. If he/she already tested for it, ask to see the result.

      I wish you the best!!

    1. hello

      I have Lupus and APS (the sister clotting portion of this disease).

      Lupus is one of many disorders of the immune system known as autoimmune diseases. In autoimmune diseases, the immune system turns against parts of the body it is designed to protect. This leads to inflammation and damage to various body tissues. Lupus can affect many parts of the body, including the joints, skin, kidneys, heart, lungs, blood vessels, and brain. Although people with the disease may have many different symptoms, some of the most common ones include extreme fatigue, painful or swollen joints (arthritis), unexplained fever, skin rashes, and kidney problems.

      At present, there is no cure for lupus. However, lupus can be effectively treated with drugs, and most people with the disease can lead active, healthy lives. Lupus is characterized by periods of illness, called flares, and periods of wellness, or remission. Understanding how to prevent flares and how to treat them when they do occur helps people with lupus maintain better health. Intense research is underway, and scientists funded by the NIH are continuing to make great strides in understanding the disease, which may ultimately lead to a cure.

      Two of the major questions researchers are studying are who gets lupus and why. We know that many more women than men have lupus. Lupus is three times more common in African American women than in Caucasian women and is also more common in women of Hispanic, Asian, and Native American descent. In addition, lupus can run in families, but the risk that a child or a brother or sister of a patient will also have lupus is still quite low. It is difficult to estimate how many people in the United States have the disease because its symptoms vary widely and its onset is often hard to pinpoint.

      Lupus can be effectively treated with drugs, and most people with the disease can lead active, healthy lives.

      I have more information included some support groups for you listed below. It is important to take care of yourself, get your rest and take your medications. Keep a journal of you symptoms and take pictures of any strange rashes or discolorations you may get. Be an informed and educated patient!

      Good Luck!

    synovitis, psoriasis, other med problems?
    here is my problem- I have a slew of medical issues-from fatigue,always having respiratory illness and joint pain on my entire left side, to what i JUST realized were psoriasis patches on my neck (i had them in the past. havent seen them this entire year), as well as other issues- These being the main ones.I’ve taken numerous xrays, MRIs and blood tests. ONE blood test (my 1st) showed I had a positive ANA…a weak positive. Subsequent tests all came back negative for lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, etc etc…everything comes back negative…at different dr’s, labs, etc… Recently, my left ring finger became extremely swollen after what felt like loss of circulation on my left arm…I was diagnosed with synovitis-which the doctor’s have NO clue why I have this being that its usually only present in people with an autoimmune disease (which I have alot of symptoms of, but no lab work to justify it). Any idea what may be going on with me? I will begin taking the medrol pack (5 days) next wk
    does this sound like any ailment that perhaps my doctors are not looking into? They tell me I am a “medical mystery”, but I think they may just be incompetent.
    I am seeing a rheumatologist…as well as a neurologist…all my blood tests for pretty much every type of arthritis has come back negative…are there any forms of arthritis that a blood test will not show?

      hi, First according to the autoimmune association psoriasis is an autoimmune condition of the skin, so you do have one. I have Lupus, own a Lupus support/message board, and do most of the research for the group. I like you have had weak positive and negative ANA’s over the years. Some other blood tests will come and go pos to neg. depending on disease activity. There are so many connective tissue autoimmune’s that it is hard to say which one you may have.
      There is off the top of my head, Lupus, Sjorgrens, Mixed connective Tissue disease, Raynunds, Polymyalgia Rhumatica, RA and others. Many take a while to progress. and most have a certain number of diagnostic critera you must meet before you can be diagnosed with it for sure. Like with lupus you must meet four of 11 critera. My MRIS come back Negative, but just got off chemotherapy for brain Cerabritis (swelling of brain, which dosent show in MRI’s Etc. so it’s all tricky, and depends how good your rhuemotologist is, and one at UCLA told me it is a bit of an art, not a full science. It can also take a bit of time to get a full picture, so they can get a history, and see what else happens.

      I understand the not knowing is the hardest part. the scariest part, it took me 5 years, though I was ill from the age of 13. we saw drs, then stopped, it was before the critera was even out. That came out in 1982. I was diagnosed in my late 20’s Im now 40. The medrol pack, may help, if they gave it to you, they are testing to see if there is any relief. any changes. that is good. My fingers will swell for a bit and go back down too, that is a sign of an auto immune, so are symptoms that come than leave to never return. I suggest you write down anything from the past that you can think of, because all these problems do NOT have to occur all at one time.Even deppression counts in a diagnosis of Lupus. Central Nervous system problems, Skin Issues, I will put the diagnostic critera for you to see.

      The pattern of that ANA test you need to find out too. ask if it was speckled. There are several others, but that is mine and the one I can think of that goes with Lupus usually. They should test your blood monthly, but the medrol, can change the results. you also need what is called a SED rate, which can tell dr’s how much inflammation is in your body, it has other names, westergreen is one. it depends on the lab, and where you live. ask for it. before you take the medrol pack. Circulation is also an issue. Here at least is the Lupus Critera so you can think of past history

      Diagnostic criteria for lupus
      The following criteria are used to distinguish lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus, or SLE) from other autoimmune and rheumatic diseases.

      A person with 4 of these 11 conditions can be diagnosed with lupus; 3 symptoms suggest that lupus is probably present, and 2 raise the possibility of lupus. Symptoms may be present all at once or appear in succession over a period of time. 1

      Butterfly (malar) rash on cheeks
      Rash on face, arms, neck, torso (discoid rash)
      Skin rashes that result from exposure to sunlight or ultraviolet light (photosensitivity)
      Mouth or nasal ulcers, usually painless
      Joint swelling, stiffness, pain involving two or more joints (arthritis)
      Inflammation of the membranes surrounding the lungs (pleuritis) or heart (pericarditis). This inflammation is called serositis.
      Abnormalities in urine, such as increased protein or clumps of red blood cells or kidney cells, called cell casts, in the urine
      Nervous system problems, such as seizures or psychosis, without known cause
      Problems with the blood, such as reduced numbers of red blood cells (anemia), platelets, or white blood cells
      Positive antinuclear antibody (ANA) test
      Signs of increased autoimmunity (antibodies against normal tissue), as shown by laboratory tests

    I know this can be frustrating, but it can take time to get a proper diagnosis. The diagnosis is very important because only then, the treatment to control the disorder can be tailored properly to it.
    The left knee looks swollen to me in the picture. It is important that your physicians rule out SLE (Systemic Lupus Erythematosus), and migrating arthralgias can be Lyme Disease, so a couple of Lyme Disease titers are important since they are so often falsely negative. Hypothyroidism will also result in joint pains which can sometimes mimic arthritic syndromes, particularly in the young. Lastly, they will need to address the possibility that this is a rheumatoid arthritis, and it sounds as if they are not quite there yet. Even if it is RA, there are better treatments in the last few years which can keep flares at a minimum. Yes, definitely take the pictures with you for the rheumatologist. Very best wishes.

    [Read ALL Details] I’ve always wondered about this…am I like, allergic to the sun?
    Well for starters I’m deathly pale. I have naturally super light eyes & skin, too. Thanks to my heritage/genetics I guess. (Germannnnnn)

    My problem is I can’t go out in the summer for even 30 minutes without getting a bad sunburn and red itchy bumps. I can barely even open my eyes when I’m outside in the sunlight, period. My friends always laugh and joke that I’m so some sort of vampire because of it all.

    Any input? I’m not even sure if it’s linked to something health related.

    I like being pale because it adds to me looking exotic. And I wouldnt want to be in the sun anyways because my family has a history of skin cancer / I don’t want wrinkles.

    Yes, I still wear sunscreen though.
