After 37 Years Of Crippling Pain And Legions Of Doctors, They Find This In Her Home

Artist Dana Anhalt, 37, never had a day without joint pain and allergies. She spent her whole life trying to figure out why and couldn't until just now.

Dana's father, Evan Anhalt, created an account on GoFundMe, explaining his daughter's illness. He said in 2011, Dana's body completely shut down, inhibiting her from walking, moving or even speaking. He wrote, Her symptoms eluded diagnosis for decades and got so severe that she became bedridden with full body pain. Terrible neuropathy left her unable to use her hands, even for simple tasks. She could barely walk. Her jaw nearly swelled shut from intractable pain and inflammation in the masseter muscle (which remains to this day). For many years now, she’s been isolated and imprisoned in a body that can hardly move, type, chew or speak.”

Over the course of just a few years, the family had seen "upwards of 100 doctors". It wasn't until recently that doctors finally figured out what was ailing Dana; Common Variable Immunodeficiency, chronic Lyme disease, Inflammatory Response Syndrome and Mast Cell Activation Syndrome. However, even though she was diagnosed with these illnesses, none of them explained why her health was deteriorating so quickly.

Evan Anhalt also said, “In 2016 she declined rapidly, became allergic to almost everything in her environment (including foods and medications), couldn’t eat solids for 7 months, became overwhelmingly intolerant to smells, tastes and touch, and was ravaged by constant excruciating joint pain. Her skin itched and burned so badly that it sometimes kept her awake for 10 days straight. Every system of her body rapidly broke down and her symptom list stretched over 4 single-spaced pages. Test results became increasingly alarming.”

The investigation into Dana's health lead them to the Anhalt home. It was finally revealed that black mold from a flood had been poisoning Dana since childhood. Doctors said multiple Dana's multiple genetic tests “make it impossible for her body to recognize or detox mold, Lyme, many medications, and the hundreds of thousands of artificial chemicals in our environment/products.”

Black mold is incredibly dangerous. If you see it in your home or have a musty odor, be sure to eradicate it from your home at all costs.
