Chronic CO Poisoning:



Longterm Effects (based on "CO Support" data):

  • Tiredness, weakness
  • Pains, cramps
  • Headaches
  • Nausea, sickness
  • Loss of Concentration
  • Dizziness
  • Digestive Problems
  • Cardiac Problems
  • Flu Symptoms
  • Difficulty Breathing
  • Pins & Needles, Stiffness
  • Vision Problems
  • Memory Loss
  • Personality, Emotional Problems

  • Unable to Walk / Work
  • Clumsiness

    Note: In my experience, the leading residual (longterm) effects of chronic CO poisoning are continued headache, dizziness, fatigue/lethargy, short-term memory loss, and muscle and joint pains. These can continue for weeks, months, years after the CO gas is eliminated as an offender.
