Could Mold be at the Root of Your Strange Symptoms?

Many people visit their doctor every year with symptoms that are misdiagnosed. These people continue to suffer and get even sicker. For many of them, mold exposure is the cause of their problems. Even though indoor mold is a common issue, few doctors recognize the symptoms of mold-related illnesses and can advise you about mold and your health.

The top symptoms of mold-related illness

Mold spores affect people differently. People who are highly sensitive to mold spores will almost immediately begin to experience eye irritation, running nose, difficulty concentrating, and shortness of breath. The symptoms can easily be mistaken for an allergic reaction to pollen, dust, pet dander, or cigarette smoke.

People not highly sensitive to mold may develop symptoms over time. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) report that ongoing exposure to high levels of indoor mold spores can lead to asthma and upper respiratory problems in previously healthy people. The symptoms of mold-related illness may manifest as feelings of fatigue, frequent headaches, flu-like symptoms, and stiffness in joints.

Mold spores are too small to be seen with the human eye and are inhaled deeply into the lungs. There are well over 100,000 different types of mold. Some molds secrete mycotoxins that can lead to serious health problems like immune dysfunction, neurological issues, cognitive decline, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder.
