For about 3 months now my husband, my son, and myself have all been waking up in the middle of the night having a hard time breathing. This results in my husband and son coughing up a storm while my entire body is aching from having to take so many deep breaths throughout the night.
We have had our house checked for mold, changed our air filters for the AC, went to the doctor. Nothing seems to help! I would move out of this house tomorrow if we weren't locked into a rent. The 3 of us are just miserable and absolutely exhausted from lack of good sleep. Has anyone experienced anything like this before? We are NOT sick, because once we all leave the house we start to slowly feel better. I could use some suggestions right about now!

You have already checked for everything that popped into my head as a cause. It just seems so odd that it's affecting all of you like that. I hope someone else has some suggestions for you...

Seriously though, OP, I would highly recommend getting a CO detector if you don't already have one. If you do have one, make sure you have a fresh battery in it. If there is one hooked up then test it with the test button. The fact that you feel ill and it makes you feel weak, yet you slowly start to feel better when you are away from the house is a huge clue that it's something IN the house. CO is odorless, colorless, tasteless and most importantly, DEADLY.

My guess is that water has seeped into the basement and there is mold you cant see in the carpet or padding it could be radon
