I’m typically a healthy 22 year old female who just moved into a new apartment. However in the last few days out of nowhere after spending the night in the new place I wake up with a horrible sore throat, sweets, stuffy nose and congestion. When I leave the apartment, throughout the day at work, I start to feel better and all the symptoms disappear. But, when I get back home I’ll start to get a little sore throat, go to bed, wake up worse than the morning before! Then throughout the day get better…and that cycle has lasted all week -- now I’m full out just not “getting better” anymore. Currently, I’m having a hard time breathing, am congested all the time and (get nauseous in the apt). I’ve joking said “I’m allergic to my apartment” but now I really think there might be an allergen I am reacting to. I’ve talked to some friends who think this might be a mold problem (I haven’t seen any mold there) which in any case I thought I would get your guys thoughts.
I would appreciate any thoughts or what not.

You might try calling your local health department. Ask for their environmental health program and explain your concerns. They should be able to help you determine what might be going on.
