Coughing in one room
Hope you guys don't mind me posting here for some advice about my own health, instead of my cats'! I'm seriously out of ideas here so I don't know what else to do. I figure maybe if I ask enough people, someone will know what's going on.
I have a very frustrating problem. Every night, when I go to bed, I start coughing uncontrollably. It's so bad I often can't fall asleep for hours. Sometimes taking a hot shower helps, sometimes it doesn't.
The weird thing is, this only happens in one room of my condo. I tried moving the bed to a different room, and I was cough-free that night, so it's clearly something in the bedroom, and clearly nothing in/on the bed and sheets.
I don't even know how to begin solving this problem. We do have mold in our attic, but we had a guy come out to treat it yesterday and he assured us the spores would not be floating around if left undisturbed, and that if they were floating around, they'd be in every room, not just one (the attic door isn't even above the bedroom). He also inspected the bedroom and said he did not see any signs of mold growth in there.
We don't have central air/heat and there are no vents in the bedroom. Opening or closing windows doesn't seem to make a difference. The only furniture in the bedroom is the bed, two dressers, and my boyfriend's guitar.
I'm so frustrated from lack of sleep and I really don't know what else to do. I suppose I could go to a doctor, but I'm not sure what they could do beyond referring me to an allergist and testing me for a million different things in the hopes we might stumble upon something random. I can't even think of what might be in that room that's not in others. My only other option is just never using that room, which is silly, and not ideal in a tiny 2-bedroom condo.
Ideas? What could be causing this?
