Oh, I get it. You're one of those who say something isn't so because there's no 'proof'.
Did you ever think that maybe those who have had the 'proof' have an economic reason or some other reason not to share it?
Okay, so when I would hold a hair dryer to the left side of my head, and every single time my left eyelid would begin to (visibly) droop, what do you suggest the cause was? A very vivid imagination?By the way, before my hair dryer was causing symptoms - maybe 10 years prior - when I was still using a cordless phone (and yes, holding it to my left ear) - and I had mentioned to a psychiatrist that my left eyelid would sometimes droop (not realizing that this would only happen when I'd use the hair dryer or the cordless phone or otherwise be exposed), she laughed at me and said, "Everybody's face is uneven." !!!
Facial synkinesis is the involuntary movement of facial muscles that accompanies purposeful movement of some other set of muscles; for example, facial synkinesis may result in the mouth involuntarily closing or grimacing when the eyes are purposefully closed...other conditions that may prompt the development of facial synkinesis include stroke, birth trauma, head injury, trauma following tumor removal (such as acoustic neuroma), infection, Lyme disease, diabetes, and multiple sclerosis.
I often find myself clenching my teeth during the day when I am awake. It is not intentional either and requires my constant attention to keep from doing this. If I think of something else, my teeth automatically bite down as if I'm not even in control of my own jaw bone.
Lyme disease may have a latency period of months to years before symptoms of late infection emerge. Early signs include meningitis, encephalitis, cranial neuritis, and radiculoneuropathies. Later, encephalomyelitis and encephalopathy may occur. A broad range of psychiatric reactions have been associated with Lyme disease including paranoia, dementia, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, panic attacks, major depression, anorexia nervosa, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
So you tell me how a psychiatrist is going to help me? Give me drugs to sedate me to the fact that I have a type of bacteria (or rather several) that are responsive to all of this electrosmog? Several are even types that live inside the iron-rich red blood cells. Sit me down in front of a counselor who is going to reassure me that all this electrosmog is safe and that this isn't what I am feeling?
I measured the magnetic field in this house with a meter. It measures anywhere from about 1.5 to over 3 milligauss 24/7 (this is not considering the higher levels near appliances). My neighbor's house measures 4 to 12 milligauss or higher (again, away from appliances). I predicted her house would be higher because I often felt worse when I would visit with her, and once I turned white and almost collapsed upon entering.
Radon gas is radioactive and at high levels can cause lung cancer but is it probably far less risky than smoking so I wouldn't worry.
And I did not say I felt worse when the heater in my car came on - I said I felt worse as soon as the engine came on - there's a big difference between the two.
Finally, you vacillate back and forth here - telling me my symptoms are either valid and an offshoot of Lyme, yet in the same breath you suggest I see a psychiatrist. If these symptoms are truly related to these infections of my nervous system, how would a psychiatrist be able to help me? - your only suggestion should be antibiotics to treat the infection, not a shrink or psych meds.I'll say it again - my symptoms of electrosensitivity PRECEDED my knowledge of EMF/RF. I had no knowledge prior of what an electromagnetic field even was.
Again I would suggest you seek out a neurologist or psychiatrist who has experience of treating the neuropsychiatric symptoms of Lyme disease.
And it was the dead of winter when I almost collapsed upon entering my neighbor's home.
I did not say I felt worse when the heater in my car came on
I kept telling family members that I always felt ill, but especially so when I'd drive my car, or when I'd get to a certain intersection or road, or in certain stores, or when my heater ran more..

A quick reallity check here.One consequence of the proposition "electric fields are bad for you" is that we would have lived longer before these fields were produced.200 years ago there was no electricity (in the conventional sense of the word).There is good evidence from the records kept in parish registries etc that people are generally living longer than say 200 years ago. In particular fewer children are dying young.
