Mold-related illness can manifest in many different ways. While prevalent, it is often hard to diagnose due to the variety of symptoms, which present differently in every person and can be psychiatric, cognitive, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory, neurological, and/or digestive. Symptoms also present similarly to other conditions such as allergies or Lyme disease.
Common symptoms include congestion, sneezing, runny nose, asthma, coughing, wheezing, red or itchy eyes, light sensitivity, headaches, brain fog, memory problems, depression, chronic fatigue, muscle weakness, joint or muscle pain, numbness, tingling, skin rash, itching, digestive disorders, and lack of appetite.
Anyone experiencing these symptoms should consider an Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) environmental assessment and a mycotoxin urine test. An IAQ assessment of your home or workplace can determine if there is mold or mycotoxins present in your indoor air environment. Mycotoxin urine tests can be done at home and check for mycotoxins in your body. A positive test indicates that you have been exposed to toxigenic mold. Testing results can be used to heal your home and your body.
