I read carefully your query and understand your concern.
Many of my patients have symptoms that are caused by mold.
Mold is absorbed in the blood stream and cause many health problems.
Hot flashes and palpitations are some of the health problems that mold can cause.

I suggest you to do the following examinations :
-a blood test for mold symptoms
-a hormonal balance
-EKG and a visit to a cardiologist just to be sure that there is not a cardiologic cause.
I also suggest you to avoid the mold as much as you can .
