In addition, also got loads of pain sometime not always in my both knees. In addition, I also had a problem of hayfever, and after ejaculation, my symptons of hayfever increase, means I start sneezing a lot including running nose. Overall I don't feel weakness, I don't excercise, weight is around 84 KG, height is around 5 feet 11 inch

Detailed Answer:
Hello Dear,
Thanks for using healthcaremagic.
I can say from your narration that there is possibility of arthritis you are having.Likely it is rheumatoid arthritis as there is morning stiffness.
Another possibility is you are suffering from hey fever so this allergic condition might be related to some arthritis.
Any sexual activity causes many hormonal changes in the body as well as in brain.Androgens and prostaglandins are secreted during sexual activity.After ejaculation these hormones cause neurotransmitter changes at joint nerves endings and induce inflammation in synovial fluid which is responsible for stiffness of the body.
Same way after ejaculation your hey fever symptoms increased due to hormonal changes.
Considering your weight and height, your Body Mass Index is around 26 so you are little bit overweight also.
I would like to suggest investigation like Rhematoid factor,Complete Blood Count and ESR.
So with above points keeping in mind you can visit doctor. Physician will examine and decide what investigations should be done.After diagnosis established , treatment can be done.
Hope, I have answered your query.You are welcome if any follow up question.
Regards,Dr. Chintan Solanki.

I read your Can mold cause rheumatoid arthritis and I have also read toxic mold systemic juvenile rheumatoid arthritis - Google Search and a blog about a 14-year-old girl with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, was found to have Stachybotrys growing in her bedroom walls... the reason I reiterate all this is because my son got so infected by Stachybotrys and other toxic molds in our apt that he developed systemic juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and it affects his heart, lung and joints - so does this type of mold cause it or not?
