I tested negative for MARCONS, so I have not used that spray. Is that the same EDTA sometimes used in heavy metal chelation? If so, any chance the reaction you're having could be related to heavy metals?
It is the same. So. it could be. I have e coli in my sinus cavities as well. Anymore I don't know what is causing what. I live my life daily wondering if the progression of my symptoms is going permanent or temporary. Sucky mindset I know.
How have you been...Oh!! Hey, Hoagie!! I didn't even notice the author of the post when I replied. I can't half see right now. I've had a swollen eyelid from an eyelid infection caused by clogged oil glands.
Not fun but doesn't seem nearly as bad as MARCONS or e coli in the sinuses. This is the new spray that replaced BEG, isn't it? I read something about
it Shoemaker's newsletter. I know a lot of people had bad reactions to BEG spray. The newsletter mentioned this spray had less side effects.
Sorry for your troubles. If it's not one thing it's another.
I'm supposed to start looking for a new non-moldy house. I'm scared, but I just have to pray and trust God to lead me to the right place where I will be safe and have a better chance to get my health and life back.
Are you still in the tent, or have you found a new place?Sorry to hear about
Mold is a nasty thing. I truly hope you find a healthy home to move in to.
I am still in the tent. I do go into the house for somewhat short periods of time. Honestly, I have really taken to sleeping outside. My wife loves it to. I go to sleep earlier, and wake up at sunrise. And I have very little, if any, trouble falling asleep. There is something about
sleeping outside that resets your internal clock it seems. I know my neighbors think I'm bonkers. My son and I were cutting our lawn the other week. I was helping him trim around the tent and I caught my next door neighbor peering back there with a wild look in his eyes... lol. Call me crazy, but even after we move I may continue to sleep outside (weather permitting).
Finding a house when you have mold issues is more difficult than I could have imagined. We went and looked at a rental property out in the country this afternoon. Looked great from the pics. Got there and it smelled smoky and musty. Very old HVAC unit to boot. When we finally find one we are interested in, I am going to request that they put something in the contract regarding ERMI test result. I feel this request alone is going to make it very difficult to deal with most property managers. But, as you are doing, we must pray that something comes up.
I had to pause on the cholestyramine as I think being in this house, for even short periods of time, is having detrimental affects on my health while being on the CSM. I was doing ok for the first 3 weeks. Then I started getting migraines again. Haven't had one on nearly a year and had 3 in 2 weeks. From past experience I discovered dehydration was my migraine trigger. I recently found out that I have very low ADH. And even though I am drinking plenty of water, I think being re-exposed to the mold in my house while on the cholestyramine is causing a serious dip in my ADH levels. Just a hunch. I don't get the migraines when I'm off the CSM.
I am praying that you find a mold free home and good health
