Not everything is Fibromyalgia!!

WEEEEEEELL, I feel rather ridiculous that I didn’t catch this before now. I have black mold ALL OVER my house. No wonder I can’t seem to get better from every cold, flu and bug that goes around!
This morning I couldn’t get out of bed before I was crying, so exhausted I couldn’t move so I called my mom. LOVE moms <3 She talked me through it and decided it was probably mold. I got off the phone and walked all over the house looking at it everywhere, it made me feel sick just SEEING it.

Yep, kinda embarrassing. I’ve been through this before! I had a huge mold allergy problem about 15 years ago. SO similar to right now, doctors thought it was mono then too. Nothing made me better. On a last ditch effort for answers they did an allergy test. The mold square on my back was so hugely puffy and red, they had to re-do the test to see if any of the other squares were an issue too, but nope, just the mold. 😛 That was before I knew I have Fibromyalgia.
Anyways, all this time, every winter I keep saying that all my symptoms are from fibro and that if I just give it more time, these winter symptoms will go away on the Guaifenesin Protocol. Not so! It’s mold! Have you seen the symptoms from mold? totally all me to a T. UGH!
So! Just to remind you, NOT EVERYTHING IS FIBRO! If you haven’t gotten tested for everything under the sun yet, do it now! Dr St Amand has a section in the book for where to get started with this!
What am I going to do? I hired someone to come and clean it all up for me- with a mask on. None of us will be in the house. I will leave all the windows open while she does this, with the heat running hot all day. I will use the dehumidifier 24/7 from now till Summer. I am taking probiotics. We are going to seal off the crawl space that is super wet and putting too much moisture in the air. And I will stop hanging my clothes to dry in the house. (Stupid, I know, but when you are 5’11, pants are never long enough after going through the drier. 😀 )

    Six years or so ago there was black mold in my bedroom and I didn’t even know it. It was behind the head of the bed and the dresser.
    I was sick sick sick in bed for six long months. Very sick….exactly. evenerything isn’t fibro however I can attest to this after 3 surgeries in 5 years: fibro makes everything else harder to recover from…..

      aww you poor thing!! I am hoping mine isn’t that bad. Still need to find a dr to do some tests on me and my hubby. Ours was the same, most of the mold was in our bedroom, all around the bed 🙁 myself and hubby are the sickest.
      Yes, I totally think fibro makes it worse and the mold makes fibro worse. It’s an immune issue.
      Are you better now? or still struggling with it?
