Default What is a contagious illness that causes headaches? - 01-17-2009, 03:41 AM

Me and several of my flatmates have had quite bad headaches for the past few days. As far as I can tell, that is the only real symptom, but it seems strange that we would all get headaches at the same time. Can anyone suggest what the cause might be, and how best to treat it?Carbon monoxide seems unlikely, as there's been no changes in the system, and only a few of us are having headaches. There's been no new painting either.

Carbon monoxide poisoning. Have you had the heating system checked? Anyone painting in the building - the fumes can also cause headaches as can any type of carpet shampoo/cleaner. Hope this helps.

Mold in the wall, some one is using a new perfume or hair spray. It still could be low carbon admissions, flu, bad air in the flat. The list can go on and on but I can not!
