Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Usually the toxic fumes can be either sulfur or carbon monoxide.
The fumes are caused by the burning of carbon products.
Your blood carbon monoxide level should be checked as high level of carbon monoxide an cause tingling numbness, mental confusion, headaches.
You can consult with a neurologist as well.
Please try to contact your state department on environmental pollution.

Hello
I don't know what a "state department is".
To find out what is going on, which was your question....
And I assume you have been tested as you said.
The house needs to be tested.
This would be from an indoor air quality expert.
IT is the health department that would be concerned.
Let me know your city and state and I will help.

The EPA would be the state department concerned with pollution and environmental protection.
This would be if there were a public situation that was involving regulatory problems.
Sorry, your post interrupted my edit.
Please click a positive.
Please let me know where you are, and I will try to find someone to measure your home for VOCs
