I had an appointment with my LLND yesterday and a lot has went on since I've seen her last regarding my daughter not feeling well like me. Ive mentioned it in previous posts but here is a little recap. Moved to our current house 5 1/2 years ago. I suddenly became ill with dizziness, off balance 24/7(my main symptoms but others also) the month we moved here. My husband started not feeling well also with dizziness, balance etc. We've been to the doctors numerous times over the last 5 years ESP me as I think I'm worse then my husband probably because I have Lyme also. Many specialist, tests etc all normal. Have felt like I have MS but I don't. This past May learned about
Lyme, got a test and it was positive. Been treating since this past July. But in August my daughter suddenly started feeling unwell with my same ) but also having chest pains. She is still unwell since August. She has been to the doctors, specialists and ,any tests done the last 3 months, nothing is showing wrong. Two and a half weeks ago we took her back to the family doctor and asked for doxy in case it is lyme despite the neg blood test. She was bit by a tick in June (wasn't engorged and was taken off within hours, no rash no symptoms). We got a 3 week course of doxy which she is done on Fri. At the appointment our family doctor said to my husband that she wonders if it is something in our house making us sick since all three of us are having the same symptoms. The doxy has worked for her as far as taking away her chest pains, but I believe that is because it is taking away the inflammation in her chest, and not necessary Lyme Disease. Her dizziness remains the same.
We have had TWO cats become legthargic and ill in this house. A couple months ago we had the air tested in our home for mould. Basement came back heavy and upstairs came back moderate. We found mould under our stairs after the test was done that was on old trim etc we placed there and there was a leak. We removed that and fixed the leak. We can't find any other mould in the home. Check attic, behind trim upstairs, behind some walls in basement etc. If it was mould making us sick it has to be somewhere we really can't see.
Talking with my LLND yesterday about
all this, she is very concerned it is our HOUSE making us ill. She said most likely mycotoxins. She has said it doesn't sound good, with three family members all experiencing the same symptoms, even the cats, since we moved here... and she highly recommends us moving.
We are getting through Christmas then contacting our banker first thing in Jan and looking into moving.
It's hard to believe our house is making us so sick. It is a nice house (very old however) we have renovated it so much. We can't find mould. I'm worried about
moving and going through all this and it is not even the cause.
But I'm really worried about
living here as it really sounds like it is our house causing the problems.
My LLND said she would not be surprised if in 3-4 months of being out of the house, we started feeling better.
