Stop the water: The most important step is stopping the water intrusion and remove anything which has been infested with molds. The toxic term has been loosely used since toxicity usually occurs with industrial-size not home exposure. Even if it does, the effect would subside after stopping the exposure. Candida overgrowth is not from mold exposure Antifungal and detox Rx are not indicated.

Get seen: You have symptoms that are unexplained, and they match the very general, very inclusive list of symptoms for two 'pop' diagnoses. It sounds as if you'd do best to get with an evidence-based holistic practitioner who can help you search for real disease, and look at lifestyle and living situation skills that will help you feel much better.
