 Just found out that my furnace has been leaking carbon monoxide into my home.
Found out I had lyme in May of 2009. My husband and kids have tested positive too. I have been living with Lyme for over 8 years. My symptoms are Mini-Strokes/TIA's, Hashimoto's disease, Auto immune disease, and hypo-thyroid.
 
Started treatment with samento in june 2009. Side effects are swelling of my liver, lymph system and kidneys.
 
Anaphylactic reactions to beef. Allergies to dairy, gluten, and soy.
 
My family and I are enjoying a life without dairy for the last 19 years.  We have also removed sugar, gluten, beef and soy for the last 5 years.

Glad you got that checked out before something happened.

Reading your signature I'm wondering what the heck do you eat girl?

Bucci,

Carbon monoxide has no odor, no color, and no taste. The only way to find out if there is any carbon monoxide present is to have a detector.

Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include dizziness, headache, fatigue, nausea, flu-like symptoms, etc., and it can lead to death.

Hi I am now staying at a friends house. Our furnace is 13 years old. There was a crack in the heat exchanger. When you get a crack in the heat exchanger. Carbon monoxide and leak right into your duck work and spread though out you house. The whole family has symptoms and the whole family has lyme so we did not look for it. The symptoms are very similar. The furnace stopped working a week ago. My doctor thinks we were exposed for a couple of months.

We have had blood tests to see how much is in our systems. Carbon monoxide will take the place of oxygen in your body.
