Have any of you had a severe reaction (sore throat, sweats, dizzy, brain fog) to new construction or to copy shops, or scrapbook stores?

I have a brand new condo I can't live in bc since I got lyme I get an awful reaction to my home. Now, I am living with my mom, her home is 20 yrs old and I have no issues here.

At my condo, I can't be there for more than 5 mins bf it starts and I have to run out. The same thing happens in the crapbook store, my throat starts to swell and I have to get out fast. It will go away if I take benedryl, but its pretty severe and fast.

Will this go away when my lyme is under control?
Have any of you had a similar reaction to these things? I think the common component is formaldahyde. It is used in OSB board and in paper products.

Please let me know if you have had this problem and if you found a way to stop the reaction.
Or, if you stopped having this reaction once the spirochetes are gone.

Thanks..Jenny

Yes - unfortunately, for those of us who are chemically sensitive, we cannot live around chemicals and have to make living adjustments that work for us, by default.

If you google for Debra Dadd, she's got a lot of info about how to live chemical-free.

I think we will have to both treat very well and detox before we can handle chemicals.

When I first started abx, my chemical sensitivity went down a little. So that's an indication of the direction to go.

That's a shame. I know others here deal with MCS, which usually at least gets BETTER with Lyme treatment.

Can you air out your condo before winter gets here??

Maybe once it "gasses out" you will be able to live there. One can HOPE!!!
