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.

    lupus??? help, please!! ?
    so, about two years ago i was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis.. when they did all the blood tests, they were also positive for lupus, but the doctors never did anything because i didn’t have any ‘outward physical signs’ of it.. well, yesterday i noticed a small rash on my face (across my cheeks) and i sent a picture of it to my mom (who works for a doctor) and she showed it to him and he said it definitely looked like a ‘butterfly rash’ (a symptom of lupus’).. so, now, i’m wondering, how likely is it that it is lupus? i’m really really worried..should i be? or am i worrying over nothing?

      You have reason to be concerned. This is a common symptom or sign of lupus. It means your body is beginning to produce symptoms of active disease. You need to follow up with your primary doctor and get the ball rolling. You don’t need to suffer unnecessarily with some of these symptoms that will occur, the sooner you treat them the more control you’ll have maintaining your illness.

      * They may consider further testing at this time. Auto-immune diseases can be tricky to diagnose. Because of the, “butterfly rash,” they may rule out the rheumatoid arthritis. Lupus alone may be the culprit for your aching and swollen joints. I wish you luck…I suffer from an auto-immune disease myself. You’ll have good days and bad, I’ll say a prayer for more good ones!

    Should I get checked out for lupus?
    I’ve been noticing that things just aren’t right with me. After some research, I realized that it might be lupus, but I don’t want to go to the dr. If my symptoms aren’t from lupus. Here they are-
    I’m always really, extremely tired all the time no matter how much I sleep.
    I’ve woken up with rashes all over my body, thinking they were from an allergic reaction to certain foods, but I’ve eaten those foods since and didn’t break out.
    I’m prone to urinary tract infections.
    My skin gets itchy and blotchy in the sun.
    I sometimes get ulcers in my nose.
    Should I ask the dr to test me for lupus?

      Your symptoms are too generalized (and not nearly severe enough) to be lupus. You would have a specific ‘butterfly’ rash over the bridge of your nose/on your cheeks. Google pictures of it, its hard to mistake it. Other than that, you would have severe, ongoing joint pain, etc.
      If you’re feeling fatigued you should ask your doctor what s/he thinks of that. It could be something as simple as a B12 deficiency. But, definitely worth asking your doc.
      Your doc will have more info on your rashes, but generally an allergic reaction to food tends to pop up on your trunk area (stomach, waist), chest, neck, or face (including lips and tongue). If its, say, on your calf or foot, its *probably* not food related. Have you used a different laundry detergent or fabric softener?

      My belief in God is what got me thru my flares too. No one seemed to truly understand what I was going thru. I have had Lupus since 1986 but they just diagnosed me in 2004. They blamed all my symptoms on other illnesses. They saw the butterfly rash on my childhood pictures when they told me what that rash I got every year on my face was. I just thought it was acne. How many years have you had Lupus?

    Allergic reaction or Lupus?
    I put on makeup one afternoon to go take pictures at the walmart. While applying the makeup, I used this new pencil eyeliner (I had used it once before). I accidentally put too much, so I grabbed a cotton ball and doused it with Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Lotion to remove the eye makeup. I rubbed the cotton ball ALL over my eyes and cheeks. I finished putting on makeup, and I left the house. Later that day, I got into an argument with my husband and I cried a little bit. About an hour after I cried, I noticed my face turning really red and spotty, even all the way down to my chin, but mostly around my cheeks and under the eyes. I took a Benadryl because my husband said it looked like an allergic reaction. I got really tired from the Benadryl and went to sleep. I woke up in the morning, my face felt kind of funny – like I couldn’t open my eyes all the way. I looked at my face in the mirror, and my eyes (above and below) and cheeks were swollen and puffy. I looked pretty scary. I immediately told my husband and we got in the car and drove to the doctors office. He said it looks like an allergic reaction, and he gave me Prednisone 6 day pack, and told me to take Claritin during the day and Benadryl at night. Well, the Claritin during the day and the Prednisone works great – but Benadryl barely works at night. Around bedtime, my face starts to get a little itchy and I see some redness and swelling. It is now day 3 of the 6 day Prednisone pack and my facial swelling has completely gone down, but around night time I’ll begin to see a bit of redness. Sometimes on my left cheek under my eye, and sometimes on my right cheek under my eye. I am worried because I was reading online about Lupus and it presents itself in a rash on the face. I don’t have any of the other symptoms of Lupus, but my question is, can Lupus make my face puffy and swollen? To me, I guess it sounds more like an allergic reaction, but my doctor said if the swelling doesn’t go down by Monday, that I should come back in because it could be something “different.” When he said “different” what does he mean?? Anyone have any ideas? I’m really scared.

      Most probably is allergic reaction from eyeliner, or some other make up that you used that day.
      Lupus can give a read colored skin on your nose and cheeks (in a form of a Butterfly), but its not itchy, and its not swollen. So most probably its not Lupus.
      I believe that after taking the full dose of Prednisone this allergie will be cleared.
      When the doctor says maybe its something different, he just want to explore other possibilities.
