Is it Heart Problems or Acid Reflux or Black mold ?

I recently noticed a feeling that I could only describe as a shaking/surging feeling coming just one inch rite from the center of my chest when I exhale sometimes (oposit side from my heart ) and one time I felt the sensation up to my neck. I also noticed I can feel my heart beat thru my chest, upper arms and neck if I sit still……………………………… I’m 28 and haven’t been getting any exercise for the past year. When I was a pre-teen doctors checked me for having an irregular heart beet but tests came up clear. I had my blood pressure taken two months ago and I guess it was fine since they didn’t tell me the results (came in for a back problem). I also have allergies and asthma with related acid reflux problems. I also recently discovered black mold growing at my home in the walls. I’m unemployed and no health insurance so I can’t afford the doctor bill for even a check up for at least 2 weeks.

I know this post was a long time ago but I just came across it and felt the need to comment. Mold can cause VERY serious health problems! It depends on the type of mold but it should be taken very seriosly. I know three girls that were living in a house with mold and 2 out of 3 of them suffered different effects. One girl who had asthma had her asthma worsen significantly because of it, and as a result began to experience arrhythmia (irregular heart beat) from it. She was living in the basement were there was the highest concentration of mold. The other girl was having problems with dizziness and light headedness which sometimes lead to nausea and the doctor couldn't figure out why. When they discovered the mold and had it taken care of all of their symptoms gradually vanished completely!? Luckily they weren't living there for a long time. I hope you figured out your problems long ago but just wanted to make sure you understood how seriously mold can affect our health! Also they didn't have to pay for the mold removal because the landlord has to since it makes it an unsafe environment to live in!
