Hello,

About two weeks ago I was diagnosed with esophageal candidiasis, I had an endoscopy done. The thing is: I'm not really feeling better. For a couple of days I felt okay, but my symptoms are now the same. I have chest pain, stomach pain, and also some pain on the right side of my chest - a few inches down from my nipple: this pain gets worse when I roll my right shoulder back.

So my question is: are these still symptoms of the esophagus problem, or is there something else?

I'm still taking 150mg of Fluconazole a day, I also am taking probiotics.
For a bit I was taking omeprazole, but I read I shouldn't take it with Fluconazole, so I stopped.

Btw, the doctor said I don't have acid reflux. Not sure if the esophagus could still cause it, idk.

Anyway, I won't be able to go back to the doctor right away, but thanks for the time anyway.

Fluconazole can be taken with omeprazole though levels of fluconazole would be increased by affecting its liver metabolism but that wont be necessarily a bad outcome in the case of esophageal candidiasis. Restart the fluconazole as prescribed by your doctor and inform him/her about the missing dose.
