Hi all,

first time ive posted on this thread and im on here for me and my husband.
Its quite complicated, so please bare with me turn

We moved into our home last year, my husband had a dust allergy before, which we knew about and could handle, but since moving into here he started getting alot of wheezing and trouble breathing, the doctor put him on allergy tablets, which seemed to calm it down a little.

Until the beginning of this year it got much worse, where he couldnt catch his breath, he was taken into hospital where they advised him to get an inhaler and they put him on some short term steroid tablets, which helped alot.

Since then he has been put on a ventolin inhaler (he does not have asthma) and also a steroid inhaler, would just like to add that he is fine if we go out for the day and it seems to start again when we get home.

The trouble is, is now i am suffering from the same thing, not as bad though, but i also need a ventolin inhaler, even though neither of us have asthma, but anything else they have tried doesn't work.

Has anyone experience the same sort of thing or have any suggestions?

We really don't know what to do.

Thanks
Amz

Do you have carpet? How old is it? Have you changed the furnace filter lately? If not, you can try using a hepa filter. Have you had your ducts cleaned? Have you been in your attic? Do you notice any mold in there? Do you have these symptoms when you are outside the home?

We have the same carpet from our old place. we have a bottom flat, so we don't have an attic, we have electric storage heating.
we don't have any mould and the symptoms dissappear when we are out of the flat.

Our humidity in the flat is around 45% which i understand its what it should be.

Is the building old? If it is, you might want to have an inspector come out and check the quality of your air. Sometimes older buildings have a whole array of nasties floating in the air and in the woodwork, mortar etc such as mold, asbestos, lead etc.

You might have to find an air quality specialist to come out and not an inspector. If all he did was look around, well no wonder he didn't find anything! lol

I'm sorry that you guys are having to deal with this :( Doesn't sound fun at all!

Thanks Sherry, we are in the process of trying to be moved, but the council here are being hard work, so we have a solicitor on our case now, hopefully it wont be much longer *fingers crossed*
