Low immunity, anemia, possible carbon monoxide poisoning due to work related issues..get his carbon monxide levels checked..and avoid working with garage doors closed, there has to be free circulation of air, as it affects health very badly even leading to death in few minutes if the carbon monoxide levels are high.
