Carbon monoxide poisoning is extremely difficult to diagnose if the exposure is prolonged and at fairly low levels.
There are some articles that deal with the long-term effects of CO exposure, but those usually disucss the long term effects of an acute episode.
Many 'sick building syndrome' cases provide some guidance. One multistory underground parking garage had its exhaust placed immediately adjacent to the air-conditioning intake of an office building: for a long time the workers who complained were told they were imagining their various complaints and were just suffering from 'stress'.
The pulse oximetry readings on your sleep test should have been of great interest if there was carbon monoxide present.
