What causes nausea and dizziness after exposure to paint?

i'm in a newly painted apartment. They said they painted and replaced carpet it 6 days ago. It smells like paint's not drying well. I'm getting nausea feeling and I told the management today about it. Should I worry that I'm feeling a little dizzy and just yuck after an hour or two in my place?

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
