As the prevalence of wireless telecommunication escalates throughout the world, health professionals are
faced with the challenge of patients who report symptoms they claim are connected with exposure to
some frequencies of electromagnetic radiation (EMR). Some scientists and clinicians acknowledge the phenomenon
of hypersensitivity to EMR resulting from common exposures such as wireless systems and electrical
devices in the home or workplace; others suggest that electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) is
psychosomatic or fictitious. Various organizations including the World Health Organization as well as some
nation states are carefully exploring this clinical phenomenon in order to better explain the rising prevalence
of non-specific, multi-system, often debilitating symptoms associated with non-ionizing EMR exposure. As
well as an assortment of physiological complaints, patients diagnosed with EHS also report profound social
and personal challenges, impairing their ability to function normally in society. This paper offers a review of
the sparse literature on this perplexing condition and a discussion of the controversy surrounding the legitimacy
of the EHS diagnosis. Recommendations are provided to assist health professionals in caring for individuals
complaining of EHS.
