    Well...i do know yesterday, or the day b4 that i started feeling really really bad, even till now, inside my esophagus it feels weird(it hurts when i swallow), im now drinking lots of liquids...and my body feels so weak; my feet is slightly numb...my head hurts a bit(i rested already, when i woke up it got worse)...........


    P.S. my family doesn't have money to go to the doctor for a checkup, so i just have to live with it...lol ...so wish me luck.icon_cry.gif

    Cover your nose and mouth with a cloth, especially if you're outside.

    How far away are you from Mt. Pagan? The gases will do the other things you described to your body, if the concentration is high enough, essentially depriving your body of needed oxygen as normal air is replaced by the air that is more saturated with the volcanic gases, which are mostly H2O (harmless), CO2 and SO2. Obviously CO2 is the main problem... Try to stay upwind from Mt. Pagan if you can. And if it gets really bad, if you have scuba gear, breathe some of the air from the tanks.

    Saipan is 200 miles south of the Pagan volcano.
    The current winds are from the east, so he should be ok.
