headaches from iPhone
I've read other threads here where posters report having headaches from using cell phones. I just want to add my experience.
Back in '07, I started getting headaches on one side when using both my cell phone or cordless home phone. In '09, I developed tinnitus in my left ear, which is now in both ears. I have had ringing in my ears going on four years now.
I also have developed pounding heart, anxiety, fibromyalgia, eye pressure, and stomach pains when around wi-fi or cordless phones.
I've been asked by several doctors if I've tried to be in an environment free of these devices to see if that is really the cause. I tell them yes. I go for several weeks to a rural area where one of my relatives live and am away from cell phones, iPhones, wi-fi, cordless phones, laptop cords for days and weeks at a time. There, I start feeling better immediately. I am able to sleep better, no stomach pain, no fibro pain, clear thinking.
The doctor then tells me that maybe it is because the environment (at my relative's house) is relaxing and that the reason I don't have these symptoms while I'm there is because of a lack of other stressors. I then tell him or her that this relative of mine, we argue all the time. So the social environment there is indeed stressful.
Doctors have a hard time whenever their intuition kicks in. They think their intuition is never wrong, ergo, I am just a hypochondriac and need more of their pills.
