Extreme Brain Fog And Fatigue, Toxic Mold Exposure

Hi, I'm struggling with extreme fatigue, even writing this takes a lot of effort.


2011-2012 I had a brakedown. I was struggling to walk and experienced severe mental reduction. There was so much going on in that period and I knew nothing about toxic mold in buildings...


I didn't figure out what it was. Luckily by coincidence I moved out. But my struggle keeps going on and recently I have started being so ill I can't function at all... I recently moved so there might be mold in my new place.


 


My biggest question is how to I get help. How can I do test that confirms this so people take me seriously and are able to help me. Most people including my family think it is 'emotional'.


It's really frustrating, my health and energy is just a little above total collapse.


 


I'm living in Norway.


 


 


Sorry my post is so bad, but I'm struggling with severe brain fog and depression.

  • I'm so sorry to hear that. I'm in the same boat as you, the house I live in has a major toxic mold issue and I live somewhere where no mold remediation specialist I can find. Lately I finally managed to find a company that specialize in installing IQair filters which are supposedly the gold standard for clearing out the air from mold, bacteria and viruses. I'm sure you can find someone in Norway who specialize in indoor mold treatment. 


     


    There's something called an ERMI test that you can do to verify the existence of mold.

    You can order this kit and follow the instruction then send the sample back to the lab for them to test for different kinds of mold.

    Hi! Thanks very much for response!


    I'm planning to move asap, my concern is really about how to test (blood tests etc.) and prove that I have been exposed to toxic mold and to find a doctor who knows about how to heal and minimize damage. I went to the medical doctor, but he clearly didn't believe me, I think he lacks knowledge about this stuff and I think that is what is normal among medical doctors. So I think first step is to take the necessary test so I can prove what is the problem then people will take me seriously.


     


    I watched Dave Aspreys video on toxic mold, he listed lots of stuff that helped him. But my doctor refuses to prescribe that stuff to me. I only got nystatin, but that only takes care of mold/fungi in the intestines.


    I would appreciate responses from other people who have healed from this and how they did it. I guess you could just move and let time take care of it, but life is short and also I'm scared of permanent cognitive reduction.

  • Hi, again.


    I recently read about brown sea weed extract, it is supposed to help detoxify mold toxins.


    I looked on amazon and found two products: biofilam and modifilan.


    Any thoughts on these?


    I'll keep posting what I'm finding out. Some people claim cholestyramine is a good product to heal from mold exposure. Any thoughts? It requires prescription and I suspect my doctor will refuse to give it to me without any evidence of my problems being caused by mold toxicity.
