CO poisoning can cause weakness, blurred vision, nausea, dizziness and shortness of breath. You should be immediately treated if you ever inhale carbon monoxide.

CO can come from a variety of home appliances, typically ones that are older in age such as furnaces or stoves. It can also come from cars and various vehicles.
