In brief: CO poisoning
If the furnace malfunctions it is possible that it may emit more carbon monoxide than usuall and lead toxicity.
Consider having a carbon monoxide detector in the house (install one on each floor of your house).

In brief: Possibly
Long-term, low-level co poisoning is possible with an inefficient furnace or if its exhaust is blocked.
A common but not 100% symptom is frequent headaches and loss of energy.
