I am not sure when " in the month" indicates in the following sentence.

When he thought about his activities in the month before his symptoms began, he remembered frequent exposure to diesel exhaust fumes during his travel in Russia.

    Hi Bosun,

    When he thought about what he had been doing during the month before his symptoms began, he remembered he had been travelling in Russia and been frequently exposed to diesel exhaust fumes.

    I suggest it means in the period of about four weeks before his symptoms began.
    Let me explain. It is now 16 February.
    When I think about my activities in the month before this post, I think about activities since about 16 January. I don't mean my activities from 1-31 January.
