I moved into an apartment in May 2010. I have heard from numerous people that my apartment was condemned due to black mold. Since I have moved in I have had several severe asthma attacks and a few small controllable ones. My children haven’t really had any asthma attacks, but have had many different sicknesses. My youngest son who just turned 3 years old in June had slept completely through the night since he was a few weeks old. But he had been waking up with a chronic cough from September 2010, and the doctor I had spoken with believed that it was his asthma. So I tried to keep it under control. He had to use his inhaler 4 times that week. He had woken up every night since due to his cough, at least 4 times a night. Going to bed at 9 waking up at 11 130 4 up until 530 and then down until 8 was very hard on the little guy.
In late May ’11 early June ’11 he had seen four doctors, two urgent care physicians, his pediatrician, and an ENT specialist. All of them suggested more so demanded that he have a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy because they were so enlarged. Just to let you know this little boy had not had more than one case of strep at most that I know of EVER! Now my fiance and I can not sleep in our room because it is so dry and unbearable, our throats hurt, I have had two bloody noses, wake up with extreme migraines, stopped up nose, and horrible cough.
I would like to know if my sons surgery could have been caused because of the mold? Could my families illnesses be caused because of the mold?
