Symphony One Complaint - Mold causing health conditions
BOCA RATON, FLORIDA -- Dear anyone
My name is Ryan. I am 24 years old. Recently I have been having a very difficult situation regarding my apartment complex. For 4 months I have been having upper resperitory infections. I have insurance through my restaraunt which does not cover much and i have spent within four months over $1200 dollars in health bills regarding upper resperitory problems, emergency visits due to migraines, constant fatigue, and abnormal skin rashes. I know what your thinking- could it be something other than mold?
Mold was my last resort. Thinking I had every disease in the book, including HIV, which i tested NEGATIVE 3 consecutive times over a period of 4 months, I realized that the ceiling cracking in the corner of the airconditioning could be a clue to what is going on. My friends had come to my place to visit and all left with sore throats. So i opened up my air conditioning and underneith where the air is sucked into the filter- there was a thick grey furry coating all underneith the filter. Above where the air conditioning ceiling is - is all cracked- moiture stains are all along the inside of the walls.
So I talked to my the GABLES office, and they sent someone over to check it out- they fixed the problem by painting over the stains. I told them that the leak might be coming from the third floor apartment. So they check it out and there was a "very bad leak" as described by the maintainence worker. I wanted out of the lease because i was feeling so bad and they wouldn't let me out of the lease. They said that i have to get proof that the apartment is causing the problem. I told them that they are the ones who need to send someone in to investigate mold.
The manager at the apartment suggested a person that she knew of- that would check for the mold. I told her not to enter my apartment without me there becauase i wanted to show the man exactly where to look for the mold- They went in without me present- and 3 weeks later i still have yet to get documentation on if anyone really went in there or not.
So i went to the ear nose and throat doctor who said that i have a sinus infection after taking a 250 dollar cat scan. i am running out of money- i want to fight this, i only want to be healthy- after taking amox-clav- medicine that they perscribed- ($189) i felt better and now my after 3 weeks my symptoms are returning. I am depressed, i am sad that i have to live with my WINDOWS OPEN and AIRCONDITIONING off -What ever makes me feel worse- worsens when the air is turned. I stay sick and pay $985 dollars every month to live in unhealthy conditions. I can't take it anymore. I have gone to the health department. They can't help situations regarding mold. But i know that since that leak- my health has started deteriorating. I have headaches/sore throat/sinus pressure/ and achy body every single day. No body should have to live like this. CAN ANYONE HELP ME?
