Here Are The Signs Of Mold Illness - Make Sure You Are Not At Risk

Perhaps you thought it was a nagging cold, or just a bad allergy season. Those annoying symptoms, however, just don't seem to be going away.

It's possible that the source of your problem is hidden in some deep, dark corner of your home.

Mold can cause severe health problems to people who are allergic to it, but often people don't make the connection.

That's because mold can grow quietly out of sight, behind walls, in vents or inside faucets. A lot of people exposed to mold might chalk up the symptoms as something else.

Common sights of a reaction to mold include headaches, fatigue, weakness, light sensitivity, sinus problems, cough, difficulty breathing and vertigo.

Unfortunately, these signs are common with a lot of other illnesses, such as the common cold and the flu virus. A lot of people will dismiss the recurring symptoms for a long time before digging deep into the house to see if mold might be the source.

Other symptoms that might warn you of a mold allergy are a bit more unusual. Static 'shocks' are a sign to watch out for. Mold can result in hormone fluctuations that result in an increase of these occurrences.

Night sweats, tremors, never pain and a metallic taste in the mouth are also hits that the sniffling and sneezing is more than just a cold.

The real telltale sign is persistent symptoms. If an illness just doesn’t want to go away, it could be the source of the problem is in your walls rather than in your body.
