In brief: Absolutely!
The main health issue with stoves and heaters than use wood for fuel is that they and the house are properly ventilated.
If not, carbon monoxide and other noxious fumes can build up in the home, causing many symptoms and even death. If you are getting sick and relate it to a new stove the two may be connected. Many communities have services to come check stoves and heaters out for safety.
