Esophageal Yeast Infection?

9 posts in this topic

I had never heard of this. I started seeing A GI doctor a few months back for chronic diarrea, Yah I know too much info, but about a month after my scope i started vomiting, usually a few hours after meals but no nausea, just vomit and go about my business. My regular GI doc was on vaca. and the doc that was covering for him said it sounded like slow stomach emptying, told me to take prilosec and follow up with regular doc.

Worked great, the vomiting stopped about 3 weeks in I stopped taking it as a test and the vomiting started again. So I scheduled follow up with reg GI doc. he said he didnt agree with other doc and scheduled an upper scope. Said he cut out 2 biopsies because of inflamation, one from the stomach one from the esophagus.

His office calls the next day and says the biopsy shows the yeast infection, problem is when I researched it I didnt have any of the normal symptoms, the main one being difficulty swallowing. Has anyone experienced this?

I had thrush and it went down into my esophagus. There is medication you can take (tastes terrible) but I've forgotten the name. But this shouldn't cause vomiting though and I suspect (although I'm not a doc) that if the meds stopped the vomiting, then that prescription was the correct one.

Thats what I'm having trouble with, I never had any of the symptoms of thrush and the medicine was prilosec which is for acid reflux and heartburn, both of which I dont think I have ever had. It is very weird!

There are other medications that may make you more likely to have oral thrush. I know ADVAIR is one of them (which is why, after you inhale it, you're supposed to gargle with water). Also, diabetics are much more likely to get thrush and yeast infections (genital region too) due to having higher blood sugars. These can be recurring so your best bet for fighting them, long-term, is to bring blood sugars down more.

 

Additionally, acid reflux is a by-product of gastroparesis (aka delayed gastric emptying) so it's pretty common, if that is what your docs suspect you have, to be placed on something to counter acid reflux.

Yep, I'm a transplant patient and have had Candida (Thrush) pretty bad. Made my tongue "furry" and wound up being all down my esophagus. I suck on a troche (kind of like cough drop/dinner mint kind of thing, doesn't taste bad) called Clotrimazole 10mg Troche, Dissolve 1 Troche by mouth three times daily. Thankfully this is now generic and doesn't cost me much at all.

Hi,

Medically known as candida, yeasts are small organisms that live inside the human body. They are commonly present on human skin and in areas of moisture, such as the mouth, underarms and in between the toes. However, yeasts are mostly found in the vaginal area of both men and women.Insert capsules of boric acid in the affected area, overnight, for several days. This is an effective way of treating yeast infection.Curd is beneficial in treating yeast infection. Soak a cotton tampon in curd and insert in the vagina for an hour. Repeat the process 2-3 times a day.

Hi friend,

The natural remedies are more focused on diet because unlike other candida infections on other areas of the body, topical application of different substances and products will not work since the esophagus is an internal part of the body. The only method nearest to topical application is through the consumption of natural lozenges such as ginger.

 

Thanks
