Is there a cure in any way from this mcs or tilt disease
Expert:  khagihara replied 11 months ago.

There is no cure for it. It could be due to anxiety. You should see your doctor and try antidepressants such as Celexa, Luvox, Paxil, and Prozac.

You should see an allergy doctor to have an allergy test for the solution used to remove mold.

Idiopathic environmental intolerance (IEI) is formerly called multiple chemical sensitivity. The only nationally representative study of IEI, conducted in Germany, found self-reported chemical sensitivity in 9 percent of the population, and a physician diagnosis of IEI in 0.5 percent. Studies in US communities found rates of self-reported chemical sensitivity ranging from 13 to 33 percent, and a prevalence of physician-diagnosed IEI in 3 to 6 percent.
