I bought a new shower curtain & hung it on the porch to off gas for awhile. But two days later I was on the porch reading and it was still smelly. A few days later I couldn't smell it and thought it would be okay to be out there with it but both exposures froze up my lungs for a week at a time and now seem to have caused a chronic headache, eye ache, and arm and leg pain. Has anyone else had problems with PVC plastic off gassing? Particularly from shower curtains? I will NEVER buy another PVC shower curtain!!!!!!! I had thought my "toxic" reaction, which even landed me in the ER with an autonomic crash was from Tulsi tea, now I think it may have been the PVC shower curtain. I researched PVC and there are more than 100 VOP's "volatile organic compounds" in PVC. It has been three weeks and I still feel totally poisoned with body pain that is always moving around, particularly worried about my eyes and the chronic headache, but also the arm pain.
