Mold: More symptoms than you can shake a stick at

According to one study, many cases of mold-linked illness can’t be explained by allergic reactions. A report by allergists David A. Edmondson, DO, Jordan N. Fink, MD, and colleagues at Medical College of Wisconsin, appeared in the February 2005 issue of Annals of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology. Symptoms of exposure found in the patients in that study can be diverse, including:

  • runny nose
  • cough
  • headache
  • shortness of breath
  • wheezing
  • chest tightness
  • other breathing problems
  • itchy eyes
  • nervous system problems
  • dizziness
  • anxiety
  • weakness
  • restless legs
  • memory loss
  • shaking
  • intestinal problems
  • nausea, vomiting
  • gut pain
  • nosebleed
  • urinary problems

We always recommend that you get your home tested for mold.
