Sore throat, breathlessness. Related to wall paint?

Dear Sir, Last year I worked in Philippines, I was given an apartment to stay after hours. When I was there I had afeeling thet the wall paint (I suspected) is taking my breath away, and giving me sore throat . After I finished my work there and came back home this feeling disappeared. Recently our house had a repair work, the walls wer painted aftre the repair. I have the same feeling about the wall paint. It casues the same problems that I was having in Philippines. I was wondering what can cause this, the paint itself, or something in the paint. Previously we did not have the same problem in our home. 2 days after I still have the same problem although I keep the romm and house ventilated properly. Please give me your thoughts. Thanks in advance.

Hi idemir ! May be you are allergic to paint. Even paint intoxication give lots of problem like anemia, confusion, mental disorder. Etc. If you want go for lead free paint. Take amoxicilline oral tab and cetrizine. If you can change the pain. Be safe. Bye.
