Electrosensitivity (EHS) 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.  EHS has also be recognized as a disability by the American Access Board that should be officially listed along with chemical sensitivity.
