How will I know if I have carbon monoxide poisoning?

 

The symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include headaches, nausea, fatigue and dizziness. They often lead to a misdiagnosis of the flu. Recent medical journal reports found that nearly one in four people diagnosed with the flu was actually suffering from CO poisoning. Medical evidence has also shown that heart attacks and other thoracic complaints have been correlated with high levels of carbon monoxide in the environment. Low-level exposures are especially hazardous to sensitive populations including infants, children, unborn babies, the elderly, and those medical problems such as anemia and heart or lung disease.
