Sick building : This could be a condition called sick building syndrome. Has their been construction or remodeling recently? Is it an old building (before 1990 or so)? Are others sick? What are your allergies and sensitivities? Sometimes, vapors/fumes from chemicals or hvac units in buildings can cause hypersensitivity reactions.
