Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome (EHS)

"There are also some indications that these symptoms may be due to pre-existing psychiatric conditions as well as stress reactions as a result of worrying about believed EMF health effects, rather than the EMF exposure itself." But added, "Whatever its cause, EHS is a real and sometimes a disabling problem for the affected persons."

So is it real, or is it just another problem in your head?

Sweden is leading the pack in acknowledging and dealing with this issue, mainly due to the progress made by FEB - The Swedish Association for the Electro Sensitive. The association produces and distributes educational literature that has helped raise awareness about the phenomenon around the world.

The five most common symptoms of electromagnetic hypersensitivity are:

1. Skin itch/rash/flushing/burning, and/or tingling
2. Confusion/poor concentration, and/or memory loss
3. Fatigue and weakness
4. Headache
5. Chest pain and heart problems
