Comment from: Debbie L, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: August 01

The source of my smoke inhalation was plastic beads in a neck warmer that caught on fire in a microwave causing smoke damage. I have had headaches and burning in the back of my throat since coming back into the home and I have had severe fatigue and numbness and tingling of the tongue in conjunction with a bitter taste on my tongue that increases by eating acidic foods. Numbness and tingling increase by sniffing fabrics/carpet.

My sister's boyfriend put a frozen potpie in the microwave instead of the oven for 50 minutes and when I walked up in their apt. it was filled with smoke. I grabbed my baby niece and went outside. I believe it was the carton that burned beyond recognition. It burned my throat and chest, I couldn't even breathe. He was up in the apt. longer then me because he was opening all the windows which then smoke poured out of them..
