Recognising ES and EHS

Electromagnetic fields surround us. These are now hundreds of millions of times above natural background levels. We have not had the time to adapt to the radiation from our use of electricity, mobile and cordless phones and other wireless devices.

You're probably here because either you or a family member or friend has been suffering symptoms and have been able to track down the likely cause as beingrelated to EMFs.

Symptoms that have been associated with electrical and microwave sensitivity include (but not are limited to) the following:


Physical

  • Sleep problems - inability to get a "good" nights sleep, waking up, restlessness.
  • Tiredness - abnormal tiredness, weakness, tremor, faintness and dizziness.
  • Headaches - sometimes extremely severe.
  • Tinnitus and Earaches.
  • Skin - feels dry, prone to rashes. Irritation, skin tingling, crawling sensations.
  • Chest pains, heart arrythmias
  • Warmth or burning on face, not unlike strong sunburn.
  • Pain in teeth and jaws.
  • Eyes - difficulty in seeing, smarting, irritating sensation, pain or a "gritty" feeling.
  • Aches, pain, numbness, prickling sensations in joints, bones and muscles in shoulders, arms, legs, feet, wrists, ankles, elbows and pelvis and cramp in arms and legs.

Cognitive

  • Memory - short term and long term memory impairment
  • Lack of concentration
  • Difficulty in learning new things

Emotional

  • Behavioural - Depression, mood changes, including anger and crying
  • Irritability
  • Stress and anxiety attacks, feeling out of control

If your GP is sympathetic to the idea of ES, let us know! Equally, if they are unsympathetic, we can contact them to educate them about ES, and what it could mean to many of their patients.

We do advise anyone suffering from any of these symptoms to get checked out by their GP first before coming to the conclusion that they are ES. Many of the symptoms associated with ES can also be attributed to other (some extremely serious) illnesses and it's always worth ruling those out first. If you feel strongly that you have ES, Martin Weatherall's Talking to your doctor should be a great help in approaching your GP about the condition.

Please take the time to look at the available material on the site, and do not hesitate to contact us should you wish to do so.
