On this page, I will post signs and symptoms of propane exposure I have experienced or noticed with people who uses propane daily.
I grew in the city most my life and was never around propane much. These are changes I have noticed and experienced since I started working with propane. Depending on how much propane you used or around daily can trigger all or some of these signs.
Before you read the signs of propane, I want you to know what I call Solid Propane. I will use this term in my description for signs and symptoms of propane.
Is propane in it’s raw form. It has not been burned or mixed with anything else, making the propane percentage very high.
I have a few questions I wanted to ask you before you read the signs and symptoms of propane.
Do you have friends and family who use propane daily? .
Have you been feeling sick while using or working with propane?
Do you get angry easy?
Do you drink a lot of caffeine daily?
Are you having vision problems?
Do you have memory problems?
If you answer yes to any of my question, please look at my signs and symptoms below for propane exposure.
Heavy Propane Exposure:
Heavy Propane exposure is for people who use or are exposed to solid propane a few times a day everyday, as long as you are exposed to a good amount of solid propane daily. Things like cooking with it 3 times a day, or using it for other activities are at risk to being considered for Heavy Exposure. It’s very hard to try determine with 100% accuracy how much it will take to fall under Heavy Exposure but here are the list of signs and symptoms of what I have noticed with Heavy Propane Exposure.
- Heart Attack
- Asthma Attacks
- Multiple Sclerosis Attacks
- Sleep longer hours
- Tired a lot after sleeping long hours (Will drink more caffeine drinks to keep them going during the day)
- Mood Swings (Getting angry was one of the most common thing I noticed. Once angry, it is very hard to calm down.
- Vision problems (Might wear or need glasses)
- Bags or Dark circles under eyes
- Reading or Writing Problems
- Speech Problems
- Memory Problems
- Difficulties thinking or confused a lot
Mild Propane Exposure:
Mild propane exposure is for people who use propane a few times a month. They will exhibit many signs of Heavy Propane Exposure but less noticeably. For example, they might have minor memory problems, writing problems or speech problems. Nothing that will set off any alarms that something could be wrong. They will believe that they are fine.
This is only the beginning of the signs and symptoms of Propane. I will update more signs and symptoms of propane in the future so please follow me for more update.
