Radiation from mobile phones, computers and microware ovens could be damaging your health.

House hold item such as these could be causing headaches, joint pains, depression and fatigue in some users who have developed a sensitivity to electricity.

Tens of thousands of people in the UK are thought to suffer from condition, called electro sensitivity, yet it is not formally recognised by medical profession.

Some sufferers even become affected by the radiation in electromagnetic fields surrounding everyday items such as hairdryers and televisions.

However, their complaints are often dismissed by GPs as being purely psychological. Patients also claim mobile phone masts have made them ill.

Rod Read, of the charity Electrosensitivity UK, said: "It's very difficult for people to get a diagnosis because it's not officially recognised as an illness."

"Doctors have no training in it whatsoever. Some are more sympathetic than others but most try to look for interpretations such as work stress. They treat individual symptoms rather than the underlying cause."

More women than men suffer from electro sensitivity, which is often triggered by intensive mobile phone or computer use.

Over time, sufferers who often  have other allergies find they become increasingly affected by electrical equipment such as televisions, fridges and cookers. Symptons include headaches, tingling of the joints and ringing in the ears.

Many people also experience extreme tiredness, memory and concentration problems and depression. Sufferers claim they are being effected by the electro-magnetic fields emitted by electrical devices.

The campaign group Powerwatch believes up to 5% of the population is severely affected by electrosensitivity. And up to a third of people could be suffering some ill effects of our hi-tech society.

If  electro sensitivity is diagnosed at an early stage, sufferers can make changes to their lifestyle which could stop them developing reactions to other electrical goods. For example if they realised their mobile phone was the root of the problem, they could stop using it.

Radiation from mobile phone masts can be screened out by lining walls with a layer of aluminium foil and hanging special silver-plated curtains over windows, while a thinner form of the same material can be slung over beds.

In Sweden, where electro sensitivity is recognised, sufferers receive grants to replace electric cookers with gas stoves. In the workplaces, electrical flexes are replaced with highly-insulated cables to reduce the emission of radiation.
