But, can it harm immune systems or cause illness in general? I wonder. Especially if you are already sensitive to things?
I still want to find out about enviornmental factors that could cause illness. I'm still not convinced my issues are 100% self inflicted (okay, not the right term, but you get the idea) - I still think there might be an external factor helping them along.
Thanks for the info, Oreo.
I'm guessing since I live in a sub-desert, we probably dont have that black mold too often like you described as it gets too hot probably to have it wet all year round. However, my folks claim there is "something not right" about my enviornment here and my mom falls ill every time she visits. She feels there is something envoirnmental that is causing my health issues as they have gotten so much worse since we moved here....the house is not that old (89 or so) - so, it's hard to know.
wow, what an ordeal you've been through! so you had a drain from your sinus from your lungs? i'm not sure if i'm reading it right. like a shunt? i wish you well with the enbrel. will you continue the other meds while on enbrel? perhaps this will kick start everything! i was on enbrel for a year for RA and AS. it helped somewhat. but mine is so severe that it only helped a little for like only 3 months. what dosage of enbrel are you taking? the 25mg or 50mg singles? but if this is new onset RA...your chances of getting GREAT results are super!
i wish you the best!
