    Is Wifi making me sick?

    We have wifi in the house for phones and iPad but have now installed a wifi alarm as my next door neighbours house got broken into recently. Since the alarm has been installed I have had a fuzzy head, felt sick and dizzy and occasionally had a ringing noise in my ears. Could it be wifi overload making me ill and has anyone else had experience of this?

    Not from wifi ...used to get horrible feeling in my head using portable radio at work....its all electromagnetic radiation so theres no guarantee wifi is totally harmless....you could turn it off and see if you feel better.
    Hebridean at heart..everywhere else is just somewhere on the way back there...

    So try turning it off.

    Yes, there are people who are allergic to this sort of radiation, and others who claim that there is no danger from them. You don't want to mess with this sort of radiation if you are sensitive.

    I've heard about it.

    What makes you think it is the wifi? If you already had it installed, having an additional device connected shouldn't make a difference. People who I've encountered with this kind of sensitivity cannot, for example, manage to go into supermarkets and banks.

    It may not be an external event. Sounds like you could have vertigo, which has similar symptoms. It can also start and stop randomly. My mother has a tendency towards it, and can be triggered by simply moving the table too fast.

    Copy pasta of online symptoms:
    Symptoms of Vertigo

    Vertigo is often triggered by a change in the position of your head.
    People with vertigo typically describe it as feeling like they are:

    • Spinning
    • Tilting
    • Swaying
    • Unbalanced
    • Pulled to one direction

    Other symptoms that may accompany vertigo include:



    Symptoms can last a few minutes to a few hours or more and may come and go.

    Highly unlikely. When they tested a lot of people who thought they were allergic to electromagnetic radiation, those people didn't react when they didn't know it was turned on. It does sound as if something is wrong though, I hope you find what it is.

    The electro-magnetic smog we are all exposed to is a form of toxin, and can affect our being as much as any other toxin, especially at a quantum level. We all react differently to exposure to such toxins, and it is worse in bigger towns than say out in the countryside

    I think it is a real problem However- how do you resolve it?
    Everywhere or almost everywhere is littered with WIFI.
    UNCLE J has point about the countryside. When i lived in the countryside i didnt have any health problems.
    However since moving to an over populated area im finding that I have some issues with it.
    Best thing to do would be to put on a tin foil hat ( joking)

    Minimise the wifi - turn it off when not in use. Keep bedroom free from all applicances like phones, laptops. Or at least switch them off before bed time. Hope you get better soon x

    No? Wikipedia is well out of date. Check out these reports before coming to conclusions:
    http://www.bioinitiative.org/table-of-contents/

    It is interesting that the permitted amount of emf exposure in the old soviet union was very much lower than in the West. Then and now. It is fine saying that such and such a level is okay, because it is below the permitted levels. But what if the permitted levels themselves are wrong? There are an enormous amount of vested interests that benefit immensely financially from these permitted levels remaining as they are.

    The science hasn't caught up with the true cause - whatever it may be - of this phenomenom. Until then, low-grade scientists, medics and the Wikirati will continue to denigrate the sufferers. I will start listening when someone comes up with a cure. Until then, all I hear is the sound of science copping a deaf 'un.

    Don't be too quick to rule it out.
    They supposedly knew that asbestos dust was harmful in the 1920's but it wasn't banned for another 60 years.
    Any resemblance to actual persons living, dead, or undead, is purely coincidental
