Does the amount of exposure affect nerve gas poisoning symptoms?

The level and duration of exposure to nerve gas determines the severity of resulting symptoms and effects. In low amounts, with a short duration of exposure, symptoms include irritation of the eyes and nose. Your vision may be blurry or dim and you may have a headache. Higher doses and longer duration may cause painful breathing and coughing, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea, and uncontrolled muscle movements.
