Hello, I am new to this site and would appreciate any and all advice I can get.
I moved into an apartment 2 years ago, within two months I started experiencing the strangest symptoms. At first I noticed a crawling and
Pinching sensation on my face that would come and go but seemed to be worst in the evening. I would eventually describe this symptom to MANY doctors as feeling like I stuck my whole head in an ant farm. This would continue to get stronger and excruciatingly more painful as time passed by so much so that sometimes I would run into the bathroom, lock the door (only private place in the apt.) cry and pray for it to stop,
My list of symptoms began to grow longer as time passed, and more bazaar. Facial lesions, massive hair loss including entire eyebrows, all eyelashes. Loss of hair in places hair should be....but, hair growth where it shouldn't.....All Over My Cheeks, forehead, under eyes, neck etc. when I tried to remove this unwanted new hair it would just be back the next day. BTW this hair is white about
half inch long, also on my scalp. I noticed that I could actually see the hair floating around me at times, and when my face was really flared up I noticed it shed particles, unknown particles, would shed and fall to my desk all day. This caused me such anxiety at the time as I was experiencing all these new symptoms, while starting a new accounting job at the time and searching to find out what was happening to me. I remember that is when I noticed that it seemed like I suddenly couldn't figure out how to do my job. After working in the accounting field for over 20 years.... I couldn't do the work. My job eventually had to let me go. My brain fog turned in to memory loss, confusion, and eventually got so bad that it affected my ability to talk, drive, and function as a whole.
All of these symptoms happened within a two month time frame. I was at the dr.'s office every week still seeking a diagnosis, knowing each
time I tried to describe my growing list of strange symptoms to each new specialist.....the looks they were giving me were getting more worrisome.
My story has just begun, but too long for one post....I would eventually find out after searching for nine months that I have aspergillus and pens ilium (sorry for mispellings) obtained while living in the apartment I had recently moved into. ( the apt. Tested positive for both molds as well as a fungus during an environmental test
Until later : ) any advise appreciated, thx to everyone
