over the past month and a half i went through ***l with something that happened i have had my cell for 2 years. Over the last 1 half month period everytime a call would come in or if i make a call i feel a strong shock pian back of my skull this happened within a 10 - 30 second period. About several times more this happened but i noticed as i put the phone to my ear i felt tingiling sensation or like a wave possible radio frequency exposure? When i stopped using it i had pretty bad pains all over my head ears turn flush red irratation and blood presure i found out went up. Now i feel like pressure pains where i use the phone left side and back neck area when i sit down then when i stand feels like a pressure headache. I went to see two seperate doctors first saw when my ears were red said blood pressure was up iam wanting to get an mri is it possible that tumour or cancer can develop in less then 2 months i have read all kinds of stuff to what radio frequency can do? within the month and a half i have stopped using my cell for over 3 weeks i heard that heat shock is a strong possibilty of this? Now i started to feel numbness left jawline happening Could there be nerve damage by chance?What can this be?

  • Cell phones are not as safe as the manufacturers claim. There are some who strongly believe that people are developing brain tumors from long-term cell phone use - especially if they use them in rural areas. http://www.consumeraffairs.com/news04/2005/cell_tumors_sweden.htmlKinda makes you look at little kids using cell phones much differently huh?Check out this recent study. Apparently, using cell phones at bedtime can cause insomnia, headaches, etc. So then, cell phones DO cause problems.Here's the link. http://afp.google.com/article/ALeqM5gPxNTzWS9qBgYdiPBJbm7AoBTOyAI'd quit using a cell phone all together if I were having your symptoms.

  • This is why I'm convinced infections such as Lyme Disease work alongside ES, and why I think the cell phone boom is essentially causing chronic infection. 'Cross Currents' by Robert O. Becker M.D. – page 72. Very interesting study - thank you for sharing. Makes me even more leary of cellphone safety. Especially since most of the studies were funded by the cellphone companies!

  • Kakoce, Have you been tested for an allergy to nickel? Some types of cell phones are partly made of nickel. If you are allergic to it, this may be causing some of your symptoms.

  • Electrical Hypersensitivity| Case Study | Other links | What is Electrical Hypersensitivity? Known variously as electromagnetic hypersensitivity, electrical sensitivity, electrosensitivity, and a host of other terms, electromagnetic sensitivity syndrome (ES) is a physiological disorder characterized by symptoms directly brought on by exposure to electromagnetic fields. ES is a serious public health concern and the incidence of ES is growing. A Growing Concern The typical American is in nearly continuous interaction with stimulation from across the electromagnetic spectrum. The density of radio waves around us is now 100 million to 200 million times the natural level reaching us from the sun. There is increasing awareness that humans are responding to electromagnetic radiation in a variety of ways. Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) EMFs are invisible fields of energy produced whenever electric current is flowing. EMFs are biologically active and a great deal of information exists regarding the health effects of EMF stimulation on animals, including humans. Evidence has been coming to light that EMF exposure may cause many more problems than had been contemplated and this includes the phenomenon of electromagnetic hypersensitivity. Electrical Hypersensitivity (ES) ES is a disorder whereby neurological and allergic-type symptoms are brought on thru exposure to electromagnetic fields. Many individuals with ES are primarily sensitive to certain frequencies of EMF and there is a wide range in the degree of sensitivity exhibited by those affected. The incidence of electrosensitivity is growing. Many persons experience an abrupt onset of symptoms following exposure to a novel EMF such as fields associated with a new computer or with new fluorescent lights. Symptoms often are not immediately recognized by the injured as having been brought on by EMF exposure. Onset of ES has also been reported following chemical exposure. More research on this phenomenon is urgently needed in order to understand the mechanism behind it. It appears, however, that there is some direct effect upon the nervous system and that the immune system is likely also involved in this disorder. Symptoms of ES Symptoms may include but are not limited to: Headache, eye irritation, dizziness, nausea, skin rash, facial swelling, weakness, fatigue, pain in joints and/or muscles, buzzing/ringing in ears, skin numbness, abdominal pressure and pain, breathing difficulty, and irregular heartbeat. Additional symptoms have been reported in some individuals such as paralysis, balance problems, body and/or muscle spasms, convulsions, confusion,depression, difficulty in concentrating, siezure, sleep disturbances, and memory difficulties. the above was quoted from http://www.spinspace.com/biophysics/emfsens.htm I myself dont know if the damage caused by EMF sensitivity goes or not thou i have a couple of online friends who have EMF sensitivity issues...sometimes they cant even use their computers due to it! (In the CFS communities, EMF sensitivity is not an uncommon condition in people with CFS)... umm I guess one thing you could try is salt and bicarb/baking soda baths. I dont know if that will help or not but I saw a post by another at this site saying her naturopath recommended salt and bicarb/baking soda baths to help get rid of radiation. I used to use those kinds of baths for another problem I had (and it fixed that issue) so if you are going to see if it helps (put your head under water.. you could use a snorkle).. try 500 grams to 1 kg of salt (any kind of salt will be okay..eg table or whatever is cheapest).. and 250 grams or baking or bicarb soda. Soak in this for at least 20 mins. If this is going to work..one may notice the problem is improved after the first soaking like this.. or after several over a few day period. I do know of one person who had problems due to a mobile phone.. who went to a pranic healer and the pranic healer cleased the persons aura where the phone had affected it and DID fix the problem the person had developed..... (our bodies have a magnetic field too also called an aura.. it is that the phone affects..so some of those healers work on the auric field and fix damage from phones). oh .. i forgot to say.. if you click the link i gave.. towards the end of that page there is some EMF sensitivity organisations in a few different countries listed.. i suggest you get hold of one of them for some support and advice.

  • The fields were 5 to 11 gauss, not much compared with the 3,000 gauss needed to put a salamander to sleep, but ten to twenty times earth's background and well above the level of most magnetic storms. ... Yuri Kholodov had administered steady magnetic fields of 100 and 200 gauss to rabbits and found areas of cell death in their brains during autopsy. Although his fields were ten times as strong as ours, we stopped all human experiments immediately.Uh oh, better make sure to never go *near* an MRI machine then, they have magnetic fields between 2 000 and 30 000 gauss. Odd that I've never heard about anyone falling asleep, or having brain damage for that matter. ;)

  • I read hundreds of medical artcilces as part of my job. I did read something recently that had to do with head and neck position while using cell phones as a cause of neck pain and nerve issues. Sorry, I can't locate a citation for you.

  • I just have to ask this, to get the answer from someone involved... How do you use a computer...? If it truly is that bad, I don't see how living anywhere except far out in the woods is possible. The EM fields from simple things like a computer cable are pretty darn big, and people sit on top of mountains with antennas homing in on HUNDREDS of wireless networks. In other words, being withit a kilometre or so should be a big problem. One thing is for sure, if a neighbor uses a WLAN router, the problem would affect you as well.

  • Maybe it was the scans that have you feeling ill....? It's not really funny. I had numerous scans done prior to my realization that cell phones were making me sick - one of which was a SPECT scan of my brain to determine what Lyme was doing to my brain..

  • Just curious... but didn't they give you contrast for those tests.... maybe the contrast solutions were your problem. Could you by chance have porphyria? That would be more likely than the cell phones ringing all about you. If so... maybe the drugs and supplements you have had while being treated and the contrast solutions for all of your your tests be doing things to your body? I'd worry more about the drugs and such then the cell phones unless you wear an old cell phone against your head all the time. It's not really funny. I had numerous scans done prior to my realization -.

  • Once again, have you been tested for an allergy to nickel? Some cell phones are made of nickel, and every time you use your cell phone you are being exposed to nickel again. just a thoughtand i agree...blaze how do you use a computer so much if you have electrical sensitivity?

  • I can't believe I didn't think of this before; comparing MRIs with SPECTs is simply not fair. MRIs are pretty much *known* to be safe, unless you have some magnetic metals in your body. SPECTs on the other hand uses gamma rays - ionizing radiation. MRIs used radio waves that are *not* ionizing. Having that said though, I do believe that the nuclear scans used in todays medicine (CT, SPECT, X-rays etc) are pretty safe.

  • Every single person has metals in his/her body - we wouldn't be alive without metals. The problem is that these new technologies are causing a redistribution of heavy metals in the body. Metals that belong in my big toe are ending up in my brain.Well, of course everybody has metals in their body, but I was referring to things that are operated in (some pacemakers, for one), rather than the atoms that makes up life-necessary cells and enzymes. How exactly would they travel through your body, though? Sounds pretty implausible. In any case, they only reason I'm sounding negative about all this, is that you seem to reply to EVERY SINGLE THREAD telling them to suspect lyme and EM sensitivity...BTW, the article seems to be written by a skeptic as well ;)Yet the scientific case for electrosensitivity (ES) is threadbare. The World Health Organisation's position is that "there is no scientific basis to link ES symptoms to EMR exposure. "Further, ES is not a medical diagnosis, nor is it clear that it represents a single medical problem." This week, Professor David Coggan, a member of the Health Protection Agency's advisory group on non-ionising radiation, told BBC's Newsnight: "There is quite a lot of evidence now accumulated on mobile phones and health - and the balance of evidence overall doesn't point to problems. "There's still uncertainty and there still needs to be further research, but so far we don't have a concern. "And on that basis, the concern about Wi-Fi is much lower on the scale than, say, that about pan-global influenza." Other research has backed the view of the medical and scientific establishment. In one "provocation" study, a number of people who claimed to have electrical sensitivity were placed in a room with a mobile phone and not told whether or not it was switched on. Asked by a researcher how they felt, they failed to establish any link between physical symptoms and the alleged trigger. Just saying. Not the best source to quote perhaps. :)Using terms such as "electrosmog" doesn't exactly add credibility either.
