I’m looking to tap into your experiences and expertise to help me with some questions. I’ve always been an allergic person but my symptoms were always nasal and in the throat- never anything to do with my lungs.
18 months ago was when my respiratory symptoms began- mainly shortness of breath and as time progressed, these symptoms evolved to tight a chest, lung pain and now a cough too. A few weeks prior to my symptoms appearing, I was exposed to damp but didn’t realise damp was an issue until I was symptomatic and the damp was eradicated shortly after this.
I know that damp can cause asthma but I didn’t think that just 3 shorts months of exposure could have such lasting damage.
Have any of you developed asthma due to such exposure? Also, do any of you have any literature where I can read some good solid research into this.
It makes me sad that something as simple as exposure to damp has completely taken over my life and also my quality of life.
Thanks in advance!
