Electrical hypersensitivity (EHS) is often a combination of up to three factors:
Chronic environmental overload, both physical, chemical and psychosocial, when added to genetic predisposition and chronic or acute illness (e.g. viruses have certainly been implicated in some environmental syndromes) increase a person's susceptibility and contributes to the development of electromagnetic sensitivity symptoms.
Initiation of EHS often comes at a time when people are experiencing an intensive work period, which suggests that the changes in people's systems due to stress may increase the person's sensitivity to environmental factors. Stress sensitive hormones have been found to be elevated in people at work in electromagnetic environments (and in EHS sufferers), but not when they are at leisure.

Some common initiators associated with the development of electrical hypersensitivity which have been proposed are:
It makes little difference what the initial provocation is; environmental exposure of the immune system by chemicals inside the home or outside, pesticides, or electromagnetic fields, once a person is exposed to any of these, it seems the likelihood of reacting to all of them increases dramatically.
