Headaches are inevitable (and the least of your worries) when you're in a room of dense solvent fumes. Not ventilating properly?
Fire, cancers, neurological effects, immediate unconsciousness, etc. are all things that could happen if you're not airing everything out; consider these headaches as your early warning sign that you're inhaling far too much vapor.
