How to tell difference between sickness/panic attacks and carbon monoxide poisoning? ?

I was sick a few days ago but left the area it happened in but was still suffering from nausea, feeling like I was going to pass out, shakiness. I also have no fever which carbon monoxide poisoning does apparently. There's no gas cookers in the place I was in just an electric hob although I did have a radiator in my room. I felt sick for 3 days and have GP this week for a blood test. Any suggestions as to what this might be? I just put it down to winter bug and anxiety.

    Carbon monoxide, doesn’t have a fever but there is extreme dizziness and nausea which gets better when out of the exposure and returns when you are back there. There has to be a source of CO.  Electric appliances, no.
