Burning inside with Candida?

At present I'm undiagnosed, but I know I have gut issues. My father could pass wind for England and I'm much better on a gluten free diet.

Many years ago I found out by taking garlic capsules I could kill off a burning sensation I have internally. It's like the inside of my skin is being put on something hot. Usually have a thumping heart too, but that doesn't seem to be happening right now.

I now believe/know it's candida overgrowth.

Anyone else have similar symptoms?

I'm off to see the consultant on Monday 9th. Looking forward to getting diagnosed properly.

I have other symptoms which I'd like people to comment on, which I shall post soon.

Have a good day everyone.
