My friend's teenaged daughter has been diagnosed with

Resolved Question:

My friend's teenaged daughter has been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. She has been out of school for several weeks. Unknown to the Dr. is the fact that the wood floors in this house are saturated with dog urine that has been there for years and the dogs continue to urinate in the house. Do you see any correlation between the fibromyalgia and the extreme smell of dog urine? What other health issues might occur because of the dog urine?
