What is EHS
Electrosensitivity, also known as Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS), is a disabling condition in which an individual experiences a myriad of symptoms, like headaches, ringing in the ears, brain fog, dizziness, unusual heart palpitations, insomnia, anxiety, irritability and fatigue in close proximity to elevated electromagnetic fields. Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS), also known as electromagnetic sensitivity or electrohypersensitivity, is a condition in which individuals report experiencing various symptoms when exposed to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) emitted by electronic devices, power lines, wireless communication devices, and other sources of electromagnetic radiation. These symptoms are often attributed to the presence of EMFs, although scientific studies have not been able to establish a causal link between EMF exposure and the reported symptoms of EHS.
People who believe they have EHS report a wide range of symptoms, which can vary from person to person. Some of the commonly reported symptoms include:
Skin-related issues: Itching, burning, or tingling sensations on the skin, rashes, and redness.
Neurological symptoms: Headaches, dizziness, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, memory problems, sleep disturbances, and anxiety.
Sensory disturbances: Tinnitus (ringing in the ears), sensitivity to light and noise, and visual disturbances.
Scientific Studies and Research: Explore scientific literature to gain insights into the research conducted on EHS. Websites like PubMed (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/) and Google Scholar (https://scholar.google.com/) allow you to search for relevant scientific articles and studies by using keywords such as “electromagnetic hypersensitivity” or “EMF health effects.”
EMF Organizations and Support Groups: There are various organizations and support groups dedicated to providing information, support, and resources for individuals with concerns about EMF exposure and EHS. Examples include the Electromagnetic Radiation Safety website (https://www.saferemr.com/) and the International Electromagnetic Field Alliance (http://www.iemfa.org/).
