Candida
I suspect I have candida overgrowth as I seem to have many of the symptoms. Is there an official or recognised test for this?

Dear Hannah
Your gp can send you to have tests done, e.g. swabs can be taken on the mouth or vagina and sent to be cultured. Discuss this with your dr who will make the necessary arrangements.
