Fatigue, pain, headaches, dizziness, burning, twitching, nausea, palpitations.
Just some of the symptoms experienced by people who say they suffer from ‘electrosensitivity’.
Electrosensitives – who are mostly self-diagnosed – say that electromagnetic fields from mobile phones, wi-fi and other modern technology are making them seriously ill.
Years of well-controlled, double-blind studies have found no evidence that electromagnetic fields cause these symptoms.
The World Health Organisation says electrosensitivity is not a medical diagnosis, and both the WHO and Public Health England say there’s no scientific basis that these symptoms are linked to electromagnetic field exposure.
But, with super-fast 5G mobile technology spreading across the UK, electrosensitives are getting increasingly worried.
The BBC has looked at the evidence concerning 5G and health risks here.
