Throughout my battle with toxic mold, I have done some extensive Googling. I’ve also visited the prehistoric library and a few book stores. I also have a video that talks about my toxic mold symptoms on YouTube that you can view here.
One thing I have found out is that medical issues created by either living or working in a moldy environment can cause hundreds, maybe thousands, of different symptoms and/or diseases.
However, many doctors refuse to acknowledge that mold can cause any symptoms other than your typical “seasonal allergy” symptoms. Symptoms like having a runny nose, red eyes, irritated/scratchy throat, are all examples that they will throw at your face.
So, for anyone else who experiences unexplained and intense symptoms, I hope this helps you one day. Many people go on for a long time without pinpointing the direct reason that they have been so ill. Unfortunately, most cases that I have found were diagnosed during autopsy.
Not all molds are harmful, while others are only slightly or moderately harmful to the human body system. And some molds, of course, can kill you by taking over your entire immune system.
Here are 70+ Symptoms that Toxic Mold can Create
