Im 14, starting this year (during the winter) i was expieriencing purple feet and they were freezing. My hands were also red and feeling like they were burning. I went to the foot doctor, and he said once summer starts, my hands and feet will get better.

Now its summer and they have not gone away. I still have purple feet, and also sometimes my feet are red. My hands still burn, and thats what i hate the most, it really feels like they are burning.

if i go walking, my feet are red and burning.

Another symptom i have is weird dizziness that started this year.

Anyone know what this is or does anyone have these symptoms?

I have your symptoms Their is an emerging environmentalfactor that most doctors are not aware of It seems ourgovernment(s) need the technology so they really don't wantthe public gaining insight about the harm It is connected tothe wireless technologys and the wireless technologys areinterconnnected to our electrical grids The wireless technologys use extremely low frequencies (ELF)http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/journal/66004416/abstractResearch ArticleElectromagnetic fields may act directly on DNAMartin Blank 1 *, Reba Goodman 21Department of Physiology, Columbia University, New York, New York 100322Department of Pathology, Columbia University, New York, New York 10032email: Martin Blank (mb32@columbia.edu)*Correspondence to Martin Blank, Department of Physiology, Columbia University, 630 West 168th Street, New York, NY 10032.KeywordsDNA; electromagnetic fields; stress genes; initiation of transcriptionAbstractA wide variety of environmental stimuli induce the expression of stress response genes, including high temperatures, hypoxia, heavy metal ions, and amino acid analogs. Stress genes are also induced by low frequency magnetic fields. The cellular response to magnetic fields is activated by unusually weak stimuli, and involves pathways only partially associated with heat shock stress. Since magnetic fields interact with moving charges, as we have shown in enzymes, it is possible that magnetic fields stimulate the stress response by interacting directly with moving electrons in DNA. In this paper, we review several lines of evidence that support this hypothesis. J. Cell.

Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_DiscoveryPanel.P ubmed_Discovery_RA&linkpos=2&log$=relatedarticles& logdbfrom=pubmed Does "electromagnetic pollution" cause illness? An inquiry among Austrian general practitioners.Leitgeb N, Schröttner J, Böhm M.Institute of Clinical Engineering, Graz University of Technology, Graz, Austria. Norbert.Leitgeb@tugraz.at More and more self-declared electromagnetic hypersensitive patients are entering physicians' practices seeking help. To assess the prevalence of cases and the opinion of Austrian physicians regarding the potential health-relevance of environmental electromagnetic fields ("electromagnetic pollution"), a statistical investigation among general practitioners was undertaken, with surprising results. Only one-third report on never having been asked about the health impact of electromagnetic pollution by patients. An overwhelming percentage of general practitioners (up to 96%) to some degree, or totally, believe in a health-relevant role of environmental electromagnetic fields, and only 39% have never associated health symptoms with "electromagnetic pollution". Two-thirds are consulted occasionally or even frequently by self-declared electromagnetic hypersensitive patients. However, sound information seems to be lacking. Knowledge on existing electromagnetic exposure limits and on environmental field levels in relation to them is poor. It is remarkable that authorities play a marginal role in informing physicians. Only 4% mention having received information on "electromagnetic pollution" from such a source. It is rather remarkable that there is such a widespread contradiction between physicians' opinions and established national and international health risk assessment. With respect to the frequency with which doctors are confronted with this issue, the results demonstrate an urgent need for action.

Do you spend a lot of time on the computer?Perhaps the weird dizziness is coming from weak electromagneticfields stimulated your skin in some capacity A new sensory resonance has been found at 2.4 Hz, characterized by a pronounced increase in the time needed for silently counting backward from 100 to 70. Prolonged exposure to the excitation was found to have a sleep-inducing and dizzying effect. In these three electric stimulation methods the external electric field is applied predominantly to the head, so that electric currents are induced in the brain in the physical manner governed by electrodynamics. Such currents can be largely avoided by applying the field not to the head, but rather to skin areas away from the head. Certain cutaneous receptors may then be stimulated and they would provide a signal input into the brain along the natural pathways of afferent nerves. It has been found that, indeed, physiological effects can be induced in this manner by very weak electric fields, United States Patent 6,506,148Loos January 14, 2003 Nervous system manipulation by electromagnetic fields from monitors AbstractPhysiological effects have been observed in a human subject in response to stimulation of the skin with weak electromagnetic fields that are pulsed with certain frequencies near 1/2 Hz or 2.4 Hz, such as to excite a sensory resonance. Many computer monitors and TV tubes, when displaying pulsed images, emit pulsed electromagnetic fields of sufficient amplitudes to cause such excitation. It is therefore possible to manipulate the nervous system of a subject by pulsing images displayed on a nearby computer monitor or TV set. For the latter, the image pulsing may be imbedded in the program material, or it may be overlaid by modulating a video stream, either as an RF signal or as a video signal. The image displayed on a computer monitor may be pulsed effectively by a simple computer program. For certain monitors, pulsed electromagnetic fields capable of exciting sensory resonances in nearby subjects may be generated even as the displayed images are pulsed with subliminal intensity.
