Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your exposure. Actually you would need to go to the ER IF you had any of the following symptoms,

  • Dull headache
  • Weakness
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Shortness of breath
  • Confusion
  • Blurred vision
  • Loss of consciousnes

If you seem to be getting a headache which is accompanied by nausea or vomiting or ANY of the above symptoms then you need to ehad to the ER. Another symptom which can be commonly seen in these situations are cherry red cheeks, which means that the cheeks would have a reddish discoloration and if that appears then you should head to the ER. But for now, open up the windows, make sure that the room is well ventilated, DONT sleep in the same room and change your location. Stay awake for 1-2 hours and see if those symptoms appear and if they dont then you should be fine.

Do you have any more questions?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
