How can you tell if your symptoms are flu, or sinisus, or mold related?

I have been to the clinic, and to the er, and they say it's sinuses, then the er said it was bronkitus, with the sinuses, but I'm still not getting any better, it gets worse at night, it feels like someone is chocking me, I cough up a lot of mucus, and I can't stop coughing, my throat is raw, nose is chaped, my head fills like a elephant is sitting on it, my chest is so sore from coughing so much. But I live in a Mobil home, that had water isuses, carpet in the kitchen, and water coming into and under the sink when ever it rained, so I finally got someone to come in and take up the carpet, that's when my symptoms got worse. But my question is, do I need to have them take up the whole flooring and put new in, instead of laying the new flooring over the old? Please help!

Hello, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

A cold or flu will typically run it's course, going through stages. You should feel as though you are turning a corner at some point. A sinus infection and/or bronchitis is an infection and can get worse (sometimes) before it gets better if left untreated. Even during treatment, if you don't improve, call your doctor.

It certainly could not hurt to replace the floor(s) if you feel this is aggravating (or possibly) causing your condition.
