Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 6 months ago.

usually mold will cause sinus and respiratory irritation symptoms.

antibiotics long term can cause diarrhea and clostridium bowel infection symptoms.

you need for the mold to be treated in your home and repairs made to keep your home dry

mold likes to grow in dark, moist warm areas.

Thank you very much. We had it We had remediation but still had some in floor decks. The only thing I can take for constipation daily is Laxafit natural I have taken to my Doctors but they say it is OK but I don't think they see what is in it. I also have had sleep apnea for over five years. Plan to try to get appt with Mayo's. My regular check is due in middle of January. many thanks I need help!

you may need to be checked for IBS-constipation which can cause chronic constipation.

there are medications like Linzess which can help with constipation.
