allergy to plastic mii blinds or oxidized windows??

I moved into this house 6 months ago.....I put new mini blinds up. the main windows are oxidized. When the sun shines in and the blinds get hot I get light headed, my tongue seems swollen, my gums and teeth  hurt....it gives off a toxic odor only I can smell......I took my blinds all down and for a couple days I felt better, NI needed something on my windows till I figure out what to do so I hung white sheets to give me privacy but after about a week I started smelling another odor .... now smelling the curtains!!  Could it be something coming off my windows?? Am I crazy or does any one have an idea??? Help
Thank you

Hi!
You could be allergic to a material released from heating up of the plastic blinds. This material may still be there in the air or sunlight could be falling on the plastic blinds (where you kept them). Ventilate your room well and if you still feel the symptoms, please consult a doctor. Also, look back and see if you are eating something new—fresh, canned, packed, tinned etc. This new edible item could also be the cause of your symptoms. Another possibility is dehydration. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
