Let me give some background ,that may or may not be relevant to current situation.
Background
In December 2006 had stomach pains like food poisoning. Went away after 2 days and fine after that. Moved house in September 2007. In October 2007
I had more stomach pains and bloating and also what appeared to be bloating in groin area.
It disappeared after 4 days and the bloating after I stretched it seemed to go down. In January 2008 it came back again with bloating and bloated groin. London and short got sent to hospital on basis it was a hernia. Had CT Scan and they said it was not a hernia but that lymph glands were enlarged so they would take out and biopsy it. The surgeon then actually found a hernia and fixed it at same time. The Consultant said I may have Crohns but after having barium meal and xray that seems not to be the case. Anyway all was well adn left hospital.

What I need Diagnosis in regard toSo back at home in new property that I soon discovered had a lot of aspergillus mould and spores and was dampish. I got dehumidifier.

Few weeks after being back from hospital (may not be related at all)
I noticed that my eyes were becoming red in the morning when I first arose. I also has some lethargy. The red eyes would go a while after getting up in morning. I then noticed I had very dry eyes and the corners of each eye showed that they were totally dry. My eyes each morning looked very very red and really weird and dead looking. As I say during the morning after getting up they would go back to bear normal. However I started to get very tired look ,with bags and darkish corners of eyes as if I had not slept for weeks (but I had !!). This carried on. I then started to notice I have a red throat inside (although not sore) and was red around the neck and blotchy red on top of chest. The position now is that I have all these symptoms still plus my skin on arms and legs and bod has a pink hue to it.

I have been getting masses of blood tests for everything that can imagine but all the Doctor can say is that my liver function test keeps going up and then down again and fluctuating although not to dangerous levels.
He is now testing me for mould (aspergillus ) and Aflatoxin but still not sure what.

Anyone any ideas what this might be ,and is it possible it could be an allergic reaction to the aspergillus spores as my eyes feel like I am "stoned" when I actually am not.

Thanks
