Electrosensitivity symptoms occur in some people in the presence of wireless devices or electromagnetic currents. Symptoms, which include headaches, dizziness, insomnia, irritability, depression, fatigue, have been reported decades ago in military personnel exposed to radiofrequency radiation from radar and today in firefighters when cell towers have been placed on or adjacent to fire stations as well as some who have smart meters placed on their homes. There is a growing body of science to support electrosensitivity as a diagnosis. See Electrosensitivity tabs under Review of Topics to read a three part overview of electrosensitivity.
For an enlightening article in the Santa Clara County/Monterey County Medical Association Bulletin describing how a physician learned about his own electrosensitivity you can read Dr. Scott Eberle’s What’s the Diagnosis, Doctor?
Writer Alison Main has documented her experience in developing electrosensitivity and her frustration at being more isolated from other people and useful technology. Electro-Sensitivity:When the Modern World Hurts
