Confused, tired due to being shut in a room with puppies excreta. Can that cause confusion and hallucinations?

I have a dog who had 7 puppies inside our home. We put them in the laundry room about the size of a restroom. After the puppies got 2-3 months old they were pooping and peeing at 1st on puppy pads but as they grew there was so much excrement in there it made my eyes burn and took my breath but while in there I kept the door shut and the longer i stayed in there the more difficult simple tasks became and I had an episode where I stayed in there at the end of a long day of going back and forth I stayed shut in there for 3 hours because i became confused and too tired to move. Can that cause confusion and hallucinations and after 911 came and ran oxygen for a while I cleared up and I want to know can being shut up in there with no fresh or moving air cause that? Can it cause further damage?

Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Unless you have been in a completely closed room, totally shut off from any air supply for a few hours together, it sounds improbable that the incident of staying in that room could have caused you hallucinations and confusion. Moreover, it again sounds improbable that spending some time in that room would have caused you to become immobile for 3 hours, so as to not be able to get out of that room.

There are two things which are concerning to me. Firstly, your hallucinations, confusion, etc. which needs further evaluation. Secondly, such a scenario of harbouring such unhygeinic conditions inside your house and your behaviour of shutting yourself inside that room for hours also seems concerning to me. Please see a psychiatrist for a detailed evaluation and psychological assessment.

Wish you all the best.
