Excessive sleep, fatigued, nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning. What is wrong?

My wife and I both find ourselves very fatigued all the time. I work outside the home and am ok at work but once I get home I am instantly over tired and find myself sleeping all the time if I am not up and moving. My wife is experiencing the same things, accompanied by dizziness and nausea. She is on a lot of medications which do cause drowsiness but has been on them for years so we were thinking she shouldn't be still tired from them. We were wondering what the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning were and what causes it. We have electric heat only. No natural gas or propane.

greetings friend.carbon monoxide poisoning can cause these symptoms especially the drowsiness and I would contact the environmental safety department in your area and your health department to have them come do a free inspection. This is a very serious condition and can easily be reversed to overcome your symptoms. Given that your both tired, it is unlikely that he does have a contagious illness, however getting assessed for simple things like anemia or thyroid disturbances by a physician would probably be helpful if this is interfering with her quality of life. cheers
