    Mold Allergies from Recent home flooding ?
    Littleglo posted:
    My Aunt has been having these symptoms for the past 3 or 4 months. Hoarse voice, some difficulty swallowing, phlem, weight loss, Raspy voice, each getting worse and worse. Has been to her Physician several times , and has had numerous testing done. Scopes, blood tests, xrays, checked for Throat or Lung cancer, for everything she was checked for came out Normal. Her home had been flooded recently and it was professionally cleaned up and new carpeting put in. At first her doctor thought it might be her severe Acid Reflus, but all those tests have turned out negative. Could it be a mold issue from the flooding and maybe the new carpeting that has probably gotten molded just the same. ? Everything else is normal. Has anybody else out there experienced any of these symptoms ? any answers or comments would be appreciated. Thank you
