In brief: Time?!!
When did this happen usually things clear up in time rarely hyperbaric oxygen chambers are used but that is for acute and serious co poisoning.

In brief: Seek further eval
Your dizziness may be from something other than carbon monoxide exposure.
Co exposure rapidly dissipates upon exposure to air and with supplemental oxygen. Advise further eval through your pcp.

In brief: CO poisoning
Carbon monoxide (co) poisoning can be very serious and may require an emergency room visit.
Treatment for a mild exposure causing dizziness, if you don't go to the emergency room, is to get plenty of fresh air and not to do any strenuous activity. If the dizziness lasts more than a few hours, consider going to see a doctor.
