What are our legal options for relief from a neighbor's constant, extreme cologne when we have a severe, documented medical response?

He lives below us and we have no escape. Even with windows closed and A/C on the stench seeps up through our floor or through the A/C itself. It triggers my wife's Trigeminal Neuralgia, also known as "The Suicide Disease," and makes me want to vomit.
Management forbids us to speak with the neighbor directly (he is new and sensitive) and told us they could be sued if they do. At that time we'd not yet confirmed the medical link but now we have and can get a letter from our doctor. We emailed them with this when we got back from seeing the doctor within a few days if necessary. We hope for the best, but if management gives us more grief we need to act quickly because the flare-ups are almost unbearable.
