hi great88,
I moved out of my apartment on Dec. 08 2006 after it sustained water damage on sept. 29, 2006. In that length of time I became very ill almost to the point of dying there. I had to call 911 one night after trying to leave out the utility closet search for the sources of mold that was causing me to be so sick. I found it. But in look i stirred up mold spores and that was enough to cause heart palpatations and acute exacerbation of my asthma that I had not had trouble with unless I had a cold or upper respiratory infection. I have been to the emergency room since that move out date at least once every month since then. I have been under a pulomonary specialist, PCP, and cardiologist due to the affects of the mold. I have now added another physician a allergist to the equation. I am taking numerous medications including 4 breathing treatments aday. I just finished round # 7 of prednisone which is another story all by itself. I am doing better, but the damage the mold caused is really scarey. The allergist says it could take 5 years or longer to desensitize me from the mold and hypersensitivity I have from living in the mold. It is a long way back to recovery but the MOST HIGH is still working it out for me. I hurt all over and when the allergy test was complete they found Candidias Albicans as part of my problem, along with Penicillium, just to name a couple. I don't have my papers on hand right now to write it out my diagnoses. But I am slowly getting better that is for sure.
And I hope everyone will do the same or get better quicker.
