Could air con be the cause of my on/off symptoms?

I haven't been feeling right on and off for about 9 months or so. I often have one or more of the following, usually for a few days at a time;

Headache, sore throat, aching limbs and or a bunged up nose.

I started a new job a year ago and as I work in health care, I wondered if it was just a dip in my immunity. However, a colleague mentioned today that it might be due to the air con we have at work.

Anyone got any ideas about whether this is a possibility?

I have seen the doctor about it all a few times and have had various blood tests. Thyroid, diabetes tests, full blood count etc.

I'm getting really frustrated with always feeling unwell, plus, i think people think I'm a bit of a hypochondriac which I swear I'm not!

I used to work on a air conditioned ship and I had the exact same symptoms, also nose bleeds.

I just got used to it TBH, not much more I could do.

Sucks eh?!
