LPR symptoms from mold?

I've had a lump in my throat and feeling of food coming up for the past month. It just occurred to me that we had a bad leak inside our doors for months not too long ago. Could my sudden symptoms be from mold? What should I do?

Re: LPR symptoms from mold?

Well, if there is mold in your house, and if you are allergic to it, the allergy-related postnasal drip could be irritating your stomach.

Step one is to see if you have mold. Can you look for it? Or might it be inside a wall? If there's a lot of mold, you can actually smell it.

If you do, you could (carefully) remove it with bleach. You may want to wear a mask while removing it. And of course, the mold will return if the area is not kept dry.

You could also try allergy treatments, such as antihistamines or possibly a sinus rinse.

Re: LPR symptoms from mold?

I did not know mold could cause LPR symptoms? I have had a leaky faucet in one of my bathrooms and there is a slight smell of mold inside the cabinet under sink. I don't know if I am reaching here for an idea or not, just wondering after reading this.
