I have recently had many symptoms. I am 9 weeks pregnant, but these seem more serious than pregnancy symptoms. I've been living in this new house for over 3 months now and i've been having them since i've lived there. My symptoms are: difficulty swallowing, spitting up mucus, burning in throat and lungs, diarrhea, nausea, dark urine, metallic taste/bloody taste in mouth, horrible memory loss, vision problems, headaches/migraines, anxiety/depression, dizziness, chronic fatigue, ongoing nosebleeds, joint/muscle stiffness and pain (terrible) in neck and back, irregular heartbeat, numbness in face (random). If anyone has any idea other than pregnancy symptoms which i do not believe and allergies which was already ruled out please let me know.

The antibiotics horribly burned my stomach to the point that I had to go to the emergency room. I told them that I was having a reaction to medication. The first thing they did was give me benadryl and epinephrine. I specifically told them it wasn't an allergic reaction but they didn't care. Per basic ER care they needed to rule allergies out. I'm telling you this because your symptoms may might not be an allergic reaction, however it stands to reason that it is certainly a reaction to something in your environment. The biggest factor is the new house- since the problems started when you moved into the house then most likely the problem is something within the house. Do you have a carbon monoxide detector? Do the problems get better when you leave the house and area- like if you went to an out of town relatives for the holidays? Was the house checked for radon? How old is the house? Things like this are difficult to figure out because it probably isnt the pregnancy causing it but the pregnancy can weaken other systems in your body and make you more susceptible to ailments you'd otherwise be immune to. You might have a hypersensitivity to an environmental factor.Has your doctor ruled out infection or virus? I'd get a full blood workup. They're probably going to wait until the baby comes out before taking on the symptoms full force.The dysphagia and labored breathing alone are enough to merit immediate medical attention and should be looked at as key indicators of the greater problem.Let me know what happpens and I wish you all the best!

If anyone has any idea other than pregnancy symptoms which i do not believe and allergies which was already ruled out please let me know.If these symptoms only started since you moved into your new house, it would seem to me that your new house is filled with toxic fumes (this is not allergies) from all the adhesives and chemicals that go along with the construction of the house, such as insulation, flooring, carpeting, wallboard (remember the recent Chinese wallboard debacle), wood preservatives, etc. If your house is not brand new, consider mold inside the walls, carpets. Your best bet, if at all possible, would be to spend a few weeks elsewhere and see if your symptoms subside. If you are inhaling toxic fumes, you need to protect your baby too. Try to get out of there for a while, it could be very important. If it is the house, you may need to seek legal advice, especially if the previous owners were aware of the problem. Good luck to you.
