Common Mold Illness Diagnosis’s

Perhaps you’ve been to your doctor because you were experiencing some strange symptoms. You’re not sure what was going on, but you trusted that your doctor was able to figure it out. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen. Many doctors are quick to offer diagnoses based on symptoms instead of on hard science. As a result, there are a lot of patients out there who have been misdiagnosed. It’s actually not uncommon for patients to eventually find out that mold was the source of their problems.

Mold and Your Health – Common Misdiagnosed Diseases and Ailments

It’s possible that this has happened to you, and while the diagnosis seemed strange you accepted it because, after all, you received it from a medical doctor. There are a number of diseases that have been falsely diagnosed because their symptoms mimicked those that manifest when people are exposed to mold. Some of these include:

  • Allergies
  • Stress
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Attention Deficit Disorder
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

If you’ve been diagnosed with any of the above, mold might just be at the root of your symptoms.

Your Next Steps

When it comes to mold and your health, it’s very important for you to be proactive. If you disagree with a diagnosis that you’ve recently received, you don’t have to just accept it. You should ask for a full blood panel to prove that you have the ailment or sickness you’ve been diagnosed with. You should also get a mold inspection to find out if mold is something you need to be concerned about in your home or place of employment. Contact us to schedule your inspection today!
