Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Can i ask when were you exposed to the mold? Also did you have any coughing or shortness of breath? Lastly, would you ind specifying your exact question, are you asking about what symptoms you can have after inhalation of mold?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I developed other symptoms like shortness of breath, cough and dizziness. The symptoms stopped once I stop working in that place.

Thanks for the additional information, so is your question about whether the mold can have lasting damage to your health? Also how long ago was this episode? Also, If you get a phone call request, that is an automated site response. I DID NOT send it. Thanks!

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I was denied from Workers compensation due to my migraine history and I need to know if those symptoms were related to the mold inhalation or to my migraine. I need an answer in writing because I can't find a doctor in my area that is willing to give me a diagnose for my worker's compensation claim
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
If you want I can send you the medical records.
Expert:  Dr. Muneeb Ali replied 5 months ago.

Thanks for the information, unfortunately this is a medical advice and information website, we cant provide you with a diagnosis which you can use for compensation claims, it wont hold up ina court of law simply because without an examination a diagnosis cannot be held as being valid. I will opt out of this question, you can contact customer services for a refund if you wish, here is their information.
