I was 6 hours in a car during the winter that the exhaust was leaking and experienced CO poisoning. I had a severe headache, nausea and vomiting, severe fatigue, dizziness and visual disturbances. It took approximately 24 hours to dissipate without any treatment. .

My exhaust in my car was leaking and I had no idea, with the temperature dropping my windows were up. I will tell you I felt a tightening in the side of my throat/neck (happening on 2 different occasions) that I have never felt in my life. Idling in traffic could have taken my life for all I know. Luckily, I opened window periodically. I'm thankful the exhaust fell apart and over $400 poorer, I am thankful..
