Does anyone elso out there have symptoms of sick building syndrome?


Also do you have a hard time getting doctors to listen and diagnose anything related to your illnesses?
I'll try the air filter, thanks for the tip. I've been taking cleansers (Ultimate Cleanse)and exercising a lot lately and it seems to make a big difference. Problems I've had for the last 4 years because of this are chronic sinusitis, rhinitis, asthma, allergy like symptoms, headaches, muscle aches, dry eyes, rash on face, ibs, colitis, and probably some more that I don't remember. It's funny how all these problems go away when I'm out of the building.
----------

YES, my eyes are always RED when I am at work and I have a tickle in the back of my throat, only when I am at work. when I go outside, my eyes are clear and no cough...

try putting on of those air cleaners on your desk, it helped me.  (+ info)

Sick Building Syndrome in Mall of America?


A friend of mine gets itchy, watery eyes every time she goes into Mall of America. She's a little neurotic, so I suspect that her symptoms are psychosomatic. I'm just curious to know if anyone else experiences allergy-like symptoms when they visit the Mall of America, or any other malls?
----------

of course not, considering tons of people would be going in and out of that mall or any other they would have thought of everyones needs ie allergies, heights, etc. ventilation systems are up and running all the time so yeah it's probably just her cause that's impossible or else they'd be having a lot of complaints  (+ info)

Has lupus ever been linked with sick building syndrome?


There hasn't been a direct link. Lupus is an idiopathic disease- there are environmental factors as well as genetic factors when lupus develops. There's no easy answer.  (+ info)

what is sick building syndrome and the symptoms ?


SBS is a condition caused by flaws in ventilation, heating and air conditioning. Emissions from some types of equipment and insufficient exhaust ventilation for certain chemicals used inside. Symptoms can include

Headache
Eye, nose, or throat irritation
Dry cough; dry or itchy skin
Dizziness and nausea
Difficulty in concentrating
Fatigue
Sensitivity to smells
Increased incidence of asthma attacks/appearance of asthma in non-asthmatics
Personality changes such as rage/weeping/paranoia/depression
Putative cases of bronchitis or pneumonia which do not respond to antibiotic treatment
Symptoms resembling Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

There are other symptons which may ar first appear to be non-related.

With an overhaul of the ventilation and airconditioning systems as well as proper exhaust ventilation for chemcial emissions these sysmptons dissipate.  (+ info)

Sick Building Syndrome, or something else? HELP?


I have been, for the past week or so, thought I had the flu. For three days I felt absolutely terrible and sick all the time. I for certain got over this on last Saturday, being I went swimming, ate, etc. Until I enter a building at my HS/college- I am completely fine. When inside the building I feel like I have the flu all over again (not hungry, tired, headaches, sweats, etc). But, when I go outside to a picnic table and sit there for a while, I start to feel fine again (except I feel sleepy, but who knows...)

So, is this sbs, mold allergies, or something else?
Should I talk to my doctor?
----------

It could be that you are allergic to something (mold, possibly asbesto) in the HS/college biulding that you enter or maybe you are having an anxiety to returning to school. But, in either case you should speak to you physician about your symptom to determine the cause and help you manage your condition   (+ info)

has anyone ever heard of sick building syndrome...and if so what did you do about it?


Sick building syndrome is where something about a building makes the occupants ill. I believe it has become more common as more emphasis is put on sealing buildings tight in the interest of energy efficiency. Sometimes it is very expensive to cure, like if a building has had foam-in-place insulation installed in the walls and the foam is now giving off gases. Getting the foam out of the walls is not going to be easy. Often the "cure" is just to increase ventilation in the building. Wikipedia has an interesting article on the topic. See the link I've given.  (+ info)

Sick Building?


I have been getting headaches every day at work for the past 2 weeks. Thinking it was the lighting, I installed a desk lamp - still the headaches. Maybe it was the monitor glare - but I have the glare screen.... I mentioned it to one of my friends and she said that she was having them too. I was then on a mission. I asked other co-workers and 9 out of 13 had the same symptoms that we have. We work in a corporate building that was built in the 70's. Although remodeled; the ceiling and most wallpaper is original... I'm thinking it could be toxic mold. I've done a bit of research on toxic mold and it's a good possibility; Anyone have an experience?
----------

i was going to say ventilation.. which would fit in with your toxic mold theory..  (+ info)

Sick building syndrome... anyone experienced this?


When my sister and I come back home from college during the breaks our house makes us really ill feeling, with like sore muscles and headaches and stuff. At first we thought it might be the food at the house (some it was expired) but we bought our own new food and it still hasn't made a difference...
----------

you could also have a carbon monoxide leak....there are a number of things it could be...mold, feces in the atmosphere, also could be a combination of something you encountered on your trip and you're reaction now...do you only feel this way when you're home or is it else where?  (+ info)
