Water in the walls due to hurricane sandy. Having heart palpitation, irregularity, chest tightness. Feels like bronchitis. Due to mold?

My workplace has experienced water in the walls from Hurricane Sandy. The water leaked in thru the ceilings of the 5th floor and has leaked inside the walls to the 2nd floor. I have been experiencing heart palpitations/ heartbeat irregularity as well as tightness in my chest which feels like bronchitis . Should I be concerned that I have been exposed to mold?

What you need to do is to determine whether that mold has caused any inflammation in your chest. The mold will not harm unless u are genetically predisposed to allergies from it
