    Prolonged Toxic Mold Exposure...what all can it cause?

    First of all, my exact question isn't completely brain/nervous system related but there isn't really a message board suited for my question/situation... I worked in an office for over 2 years that was infested with black mold and aspergillus. I've been sick more times in the past 3 years then I have throughout my entire life. And even while working in that office I suffered an early miscarriage - to be fair, I don't have a clue if mold had anything to do with that but I definitely....

    Anybody with similar symptoms?

    Hi my husband has been experiencing the same symptoms as tourettes and also blacks out. However, a consultant at the Barberry centre has diagnosed him with functional movement disorder. He has attended support groups for this but when seeing other patients with FMD, he feels misdiagnosed and I agree with him. A lot of patients were in wheelchairs and had ME and other restricting conditions. One day in 2009 whilst at work, my husband just dropped down and collapsed. He wakes straight up once he has....

    Any idea what these symptoms could be about?

    Weird numbness of body.

    Hey I am a 13 year old girl with a weird mystery. I know I'm really young but I have been having these episodes since the 3rd grade. (I am going to the doctor soon.) I have this weird numbness to my entire body every so often, but it isn't really a numbness. I can still feel things touch my body, but I have no awareness of where my limbs are or where they start and end. The longest episode I've had lasted about 45 mins, but it was on and off. My episodes are usually only a couple minutes....
