Question description

Hello, I was wondering if a person can be at risk to asbestos, in an apartment building. I have lived there 2 yrs. and after 1yr. and 1/2, I developed abnormal lung problems. I then had to use prednisone, and two different inhalers. I am currently seeing the same doctors to make sure the problem has past. There were also extreme amounts of mold throughout the building as well as the odor from my vents and a strange smell in the breezeway. I have had 3 of the maintenance men tell me to pursue a case and 1 said they were going to do a class action suit but I lost contact with him. Another one told me that the Corporate people had come to inspect some buildings and mine was the worst. He told me in secrecy that I should have been moved to another apartment long before I moved. We were the only family there for a while before we moved in December of 2012. Specifically under my apartment was a storage unit that had been completely overran by mold. I tried talking with my doctors about it, but they didn't respond. They diagnosed me with Sarcoidosis and left it at that. Is there something that I can do to make sure my family and myself are ok, or is there no real concern since the asbestos was not agitated? Also, before we left, the lowest apartments in our building as well as others had been gutted with special equipment. Since we have been gone, they have placed locks on our building and some others completely shutting them done. I think the thought of them hiding something scares me the most.
