Fibromyalgia or Fungal Infection?

For number of years some doctors have raised the fact that fungal infection, particularly of Candida albicans, may cause fibromyalgia. In fact Candida albicans infection may cause manifestation of some → symptoms very similar to fibromyalgia symptoms.

One has to emphasise that despite the quite high similarity of symptoms it is not fibromyalgia. Several symptoms typical for fibromyalgia are not present i.a. there are no so called → tender points, no chronic widespread pain, no pain in peri-articular (joint surrounding) connective tissue and no increased muscle tension, while several other symptoms typical for fibromyalgia are also missing.

Many fungi (e.g. Candida, Aspergillus, Cryptococcus, etc.) are very widespread in nature (water, soil, houses) and are hazardous to human health. These fungi may cause dangerous diseases in certain clinical situations. An impaired immune system is the main risk factor for fungal infection. Therefore, in all situations of weakened immune system we recommend our → ImmuMax prepration. ImmuMax is modern and the most potent natural dietary supplement that helps to restore a healthy and strong immune system, effectively and fast.

Medical history and physical examination play an essential role in diagnosis of fungi infection. They help establishing primary source, proximate cause, and duration of infection. Some additional tests might be necessary as well as taking material for examination (microscopic examination, culture in order to determine type of fungi and its sensitivity to antifungal drugs). The physician determines the range and character of examination basing on medical history and physical examination. A simple saliva test might be useful in screening of candida infection.
