The symptoms of electro-sensitivity relate to neurological disorders; they affect your heart they affect your skin, they affect your eyes, they affect your organs. Some of the key symptoms are chronic pain, fatigue, insomnia, palpitations, anxiety, depression, skin problems, ringing in the ears.
Many of the symptoms resemble the effects of the aging process and sufferers assume that they're just "getting older" and that such pains are "normal."
The World Health Organization defines electro-sesitivity as "...a phenomenon where individuals experience adverse health effects while using or being in the vicinity of devices emanating electric, magnetic or electromagnetic fields (EMFs)" and it presents it as arising from an "idiopathic," i.e., an "obscure or unknown cause."
Here however, Magda Havas, PhD., Professor of Environmental and Resource Studies at Trent University, Ontario, Canada presents five documented cases of electro-exposure from her formal studies, where both the causes and symptoms were found to be physiological and not psychological.
