    I was looking over my ENT tests and I see back from 2018 I had black and white mycellium in both of my ears. Fungus! I think this fungus had the perfect opportunity to invade my system this year and explains this fungal athlete's foot I've had for a couple years and possibly the stomach pain, extreme panic attacks and daily headaches. High stress created a nice comfortable resting place in my ears. I've thought I had a systematic fungal infection from the very beginning of my diagnosis. All the doctors with the exception of the Naturopath have said fungus cannot move to the inner ear. I believe it can, especially due to my eczema in and outside of my ears. Just asked my dr. to prescribe 200 mg/day of fluconozol.

    I think we know our bodies better than anyone. When you can connect the dots as you have done, it seems to make sense. Even if the fungus can't move to the inner ear as some doctors told you, it seems that it could still cause an inflammatory environment leading to fluid retention.
    Have you tried an elimination diet or auto immune diet? I know that helped our daughter when she had a severe fungal infection and full body eczema. She had a horrible reaction to antibiotics and was very ill for months. By eliminating everything and adding foods slowly back, she discovered that she was reactive to eggs. She was never allergic to eggs in her life and now she cannot eat them. Even her allergy test showed no egg allergy but if she eats them, bam- full blown eczema. She also cut way back on sugar.
    Wishing you all the best!

    Good for you identifying the issue and getting treatment!
    Dont stop though with just the flucanazole. Candida does not go away that easily, although it might recede enough to feel better after a round of a pharma. Frequently people see it return along with other issues (UTI's etc) Most dont get rid of it enough. Think more like 3-6 months not 6 weeks or less. I encourage you to do a much more thorough program. This might include adding naturals like capryllic acid, grapefruit seed extract and probiotics and maintaining that for a long time. A great site that gives you wonderful information on the subject is thecandidadiet daht kohm. Your Meniere's symptoms will likely continue to lessen as you treat. I had it so bad I thought the candida overgrowth was the cause for me. It wasn't but illustrates the seriousness of a candida overgrowth. In addition, I know Dr. Amy Myers also has a protocol she sells and a video or two on the subject. All the best. Jon

    I wonder if a judge would allow a parent to name their baby Fungal.

    I appreciate your decision of following what you strongly believe, I would suggest to have close monitoring if it until it cured completely.
