Q: Does an allergic reaction to mold cause body aches?

Does mold cause aches and pains in your boyd, such as joint or foot pain?

 I have this cough that happens.  It seems as though it is coming from a dry throat, but it happens even if I'm drinking water.  I also don't have a cold, but my eyes are red, sort of dull looking, and itchy.  Is this from the mold?

I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you over the internet, but I think your symptoms are severe enough to see a physician.  One of the symptoms of prolonged mold exposure can be joint pain, and your other symptoms are possible, too. 


Have you found any relief?  Did you see a physician?  If so, please consider returning to the community to tell us what you learned.  I'm sure it would help someone else.


Best of luck,
