I myself feel sick dizzy drunk sensitive to noise smells and I am tired. My boyfriend is just fine. Could it be poison? Carbon monoxide? Please help me rule it out???

Dear patient,

Indeed, the case sounds like environmental poisoning, and the 2 main culprits in my differential would be lead or carbon monoxide; levels of both, as well as other basic testing, should be done for you and your kids as soon as possible.

Yours truly,
