Hello people, Summary: I have mucus incontinence and I believe it is caused by candidiasis. I'm new here and am very glad to see a popular message board here to support people with such difficult ailments. I'm one of those people, and I've dealt with my particular issue for 3 1/2 years. I'm currently 22 years old and my symptoms have definitely altered my life, which I am sure is the same case for most of you. In the beginning, for the first 2 1/2 years I had my first symptom whic was liquid stool incontinence only after making a bowel movement. It would happen in small amounts for several hours after, but by night it would get better (so I started going at night, and was semi-okay in the morning). About 8 months ago though it took a turn for the worse. I took on another symptom along side the first. Constant mucus incontinence. Basically, and I apologize for being as descriptive as this, but during any physical activity I will have a moist feeling down there. I can jog for maybe 3 mins max before having a wet spot in my boxers. I walk carefully everywhere I go, fearing I might cause it to leak. In intense, stressful situations I feel a warm feeling down there, like I'm perspiring, and then the moist feeling from the mucus leaking. It also occurs during sex, or masturbation. I have been seeing doctors for a year and a half. And there are many tests that I have yet to have done. Here are a list of my current symptoms:1. Mucus incontinence2. Small amount of fecal incontinence (improved after I took probiotics, and only lasts for a few minutes after a BM most of the time).3. Bad breath. I don't notice it most of the time, but sometimes when I brush my teeth and there is a sharp contrast between my breath and the tooth paste I can tell. It smells very bad, like feces almost. For a while I thought it was the sink drain or something else (in denial).4. White tongue. Only a small portion, near the back and middle of the tongue. It's not very noticeable, but if I stick my tongue out all the way you can see it.Treatments triedWhile only having fecal incontinence1. Fiber2. Exercise, a lot3. Enema, for two weeks. (curse the doctor that suggested this)4. Low lactose intake5. Anti-parasite treatmentThe mucus incontinence is the worst, and began after the anti-parasite treatment. Also, when the mucus incontinence began I had reactions to almost everything I ate. I thought I was lactose and gluten intolerant because of it, but most things I ate caused my to bloat and have lots of gas. This lasted for a few months. I went without lactose or gluten for 2 months because of it, and then one day braved a glass of milk, and was surprised to have no gas in response to the milk.Treatments tried while having both fecal and mucus incontinence.1. Fiber2. Stool sample test.2. Steroids, for GI tract.3. Anti-biotics4. Two months gluten and lactose free5. Colonoscopy, came back negative for anything significant enough6. Blood tests for iron, folate, vitamin b12 (negative)7. Rectal Monometry 8. Desipramine - to dry out the mucus. I read somewhere that you should not do this though, and since its an antidepressant I stopped taking it. I disliked how it made me feel. Made everything dry, but the mucus.9. Current treatment: Dr Ohhira's Probiotics 12 Plus. (10 pills everyday for 6 days, now I'm currently taking 2-3 pills a day). Causes gas, and makes the fecal incontinence after a BM better, almost completely better.I don't know if it's because people don't post after they get better, but it seems that everyone with my symptoms almost never get better. It's always people posting, begging to be cured, but no one coming back and saying how they were cured. It's been difficult to figure things out because I've been forced to switch between several different doctors due to moving several times, and also very long waiting periods between appointments. But I found a new GI doctor in the area who seems to have experience with patients with my problem. I am seeing him on the 23rd of this month. I'm looking for some probable causes that I can propose to him, and see how he responds.I don't know how long I had a white tongue, or bad breath (maybe 4 months or more), but I never really thought it was connected to my mucus incontinence. The mucus is the most aggravating, and I am starting to believe it may be caused by candidiasis. The fecal inctoninence may not be caused by candidiasis, but I think the mucus is caused by candidiasis.Anyone else with similar symptoms? Anyone find a cure? Any suggestions or thoughts considering this for the gastroenterologist on the 23rd? Sorry for the wall of text, but I thought more description would be better.
