spore headaches?
    #836000 - 08/22/02 02:20 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

I have been hunting for wild shrooms almost everyday for a week now... when I am hunting, I sometimes sniff mushrooms to identify them, because you know p cubensis has a very unique smell...

well, I've been having headaches everyday for the last week or so also.. I am wondering if perhaps sniffing various mushrooms is giving me these headaches? I know mold grows in mushrooms . and fungal spores are not healthy...

usually i use my sense of smell to see if a p cubensis specimen is still fresh (not rotting inside from heat and exposure)

I've been hunting mushrooms for more than 25 years and sniff a lot of them when I'm hunting. For many mushrooms the odor is one of the important characters in identification. I've never gotten any headaches from it. I suppose it's possible you have a mild allergy or something to some of the mushrooms you're smelling and that may cause it. Or maybe there's a pollen in those fields right now which you have a problem with.In any event, just sniffing mushrooms should not cause health problems.

Happy mushrooming!

Well - i cannot remember this exactly, but i do believe that in Paul Stamets book The Mushroom Cultivator, he talks about a certain type of mushroom yeilding large spore loads and the works develope a cough from being exposed to them. This is of course under controled laboratory conditions.

Good luck dude,
Watch out with what-yer sniffin out there,
