Look at the following list of symptoms and see if you can identify the syndrome:
- problems with memory
- difficulty concentrating
- mild to severe headaches
- aches in the joints
- tooth and/or jaw pain
- difficulty sleeping
- swelling and itching in facial area
- allergies and sensitivities
- gastric and abdominal problems/nausea
- extreme dizziness, balance problems
- difficulty breathing
- ringing in ears/ear pain
- tingling, burning, pins and needles sensation
- watery, burning eyes
If you guessed Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, you are right.
If you guessed Fibromylagia, again, you are right.
How about Multiple Chemical Sensitivity? Yep, right again.
ANDDDDD – drum roll please – EMF Sensitivity!
So – you go to the doctor complaining of the above symptoms …
what diagnosis do you go home with? What treatments?
Chances are you will not go home with EMF Sensitivity as your diagnosis and what’s more, you could easily have a fistful of prescription drugs, including anti-depressant and anti-anxiety medication. Worst of all, the chances are, the treatments wouldn’t be effective and would have serious side effects.
It’s interesting to note the number of skeptics there are who claim that there is no such thing as EMF Sensitivity. Then again, the same thing was (and still is in some cases) said of Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity.
