Hello, I'm a former truck driver, and I was wondering if anyone out there reading this has suffered carbon monoxide poisoning? About 6 years ago, I believe I was poisoned over the course of a summer while driving a rig over the road. In the first three weeks, I developed slurred speech, memory problems, and confusion. I kept driving the same truck for the next three months, but my symptoms didn't worsen. They didn't improve, either, though.
Also, I installed a CO detector in the truck during that time. It never went off during that three months.
After I got off the truck, I developed severe headaches that were centered in a spot on the top of my head. My short term memory was pretty much non-existent for several months, then gradually got better, altough it's still not 100% six years later.
I have circulation problems as well. In cold weather my hands and feet will turn purple, yet they don't ache or turn numb on me.
