Question description

I have a strange chemical smell in my home and it's been 5yrs that I am trying to find what is it. I moved 3 times and sleeping in the car, patio.... a lot of pain, burning sensation in the chest, headache, back pain, hips....

My last finding was that I have a lot of Film Negatives and (I hope this is not my imagination) but I get a lot of strong fume when I start taking out all that documents/paper stuff from my little cabinet. I put everything out on the balcony but I couldn't sleep again, a lot of pain and burning sensation... My question:. I found that aging nitrate films has volatile characteristics. Decomposing cellulose nitrate is damaging the nearby materials... If this is causing my pain, what I need to do? How to eliminate this toxin? After 5 yrs maybe is in all my furniture? Maybe I need to throw away all that I have? Help me
