So not long ago, I went to the E.R. for abdominal pains and was very honest with the doctor and nurses. Mainly about my alcohol intake (one a day on most cases, but sometimes 2) which when I say one... I mean a 40 o.z.
Which when they heard that, they said I was having something related to my gas or something and it was alcohol related. Recently though I have been noticing silver looking flakes / spots in my BM.
When trying to look this up online, I mainly found weird Yahoo Answers as people joke and asking if they are a unicorn or if they should stop eating glitter? Well refining my search a little... I find something I read about before... which was Candida
. Which one person who did a few different types of enimas even showed pictures of there BM
which you could see shiny silver like flakes in them.
I called my local 'stop in' doctor place and asked if they tested for it. At first they didn't know what I was talking about (not even the nurse), but when I said it might be a overgrowth of yeast... they said Sure! (with enthusiasm). So I am unsure if they really can perform this test, or if they are only wanting to make a little extra money (I am a paranoid type person).
So I am hoping someone here can share advice or may have experienced the same thing. It is like I said... I think in the e.r. I got basically passed on as an alcoholic... although I do not drink to get drunk, but I do like my beer a day. Which I also noticed in symptoms for Candida
, a strong craving for sweets or alcohol
Thank you for your time for reading this and anyone who may be able to share anything.
