What are the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning?
You can breathe in carbon monoxide and not even know it until you have symptoms. A carbon monoxide alarm will let you know if you have too much in your home.
When you breathe in carbon monoxide, your brain and heart don’t get enough oxygen. Early symptoms may feel like having the flu. You may:
- Have a headache
- Feel tired
- Have trouble breathing
- Feel sick to your stomach or throw up
If you breathe in a lot of carbon monoxide, you could:
- Have trouble thinking
- Have a heart attack
- Go into a coma, or even die
