Inhale Concrete Acid Fumes At Monday Limping From Tuesday


Guy throw acid at concrete in basement Monday morning and left. I show
up do my job at first floor. Entire house badly stink. I opened every window etc. When go home feel like drunk. Sleep like always with a window fan blowing outside air just little above me. I sleep like it all summer. Prefer it to AC if is not very hot.
Wake up with some nerve in right foot clearly inflamed. Never happen it to me. I'm limping since yesterday morning.
Question may it have something to do with that acid fumes?

Since you were above it it's probably eating your body away from the bottom up, you probably won't be around to reply. If it was that bad why did you work there?

Acid fumes would be much more likely to affect your breathing than your foot.

A doctor would be better able to discern your symptoms than contractors on the internet... don't mess with your health...

If you new that already, you wouldn't have asked in the first place... it's your health... you can cause permanent damage ignoring some symptoms... take it from an a** who's guilty of it...

Whether a house or a person when a group of contractors put their heads together they can fix anything!

Are you over weight?
Age?
What medications are you taking?
Do you have a history of heart disease in your family?
Have you had a dry cough?
Do you smoke?
Do you drink?
Have you had any change in insurance?
