Can electromagnetic field sensitivity contribute to Fibromyalgia?
I have read that Fibromyalgia can be caused from the increasing numbers of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) in our environment. This includes radiation from cell phones and cell phone towers. Do you agree?
EMFs are but one of the hundreds of things that can contribute to Fibro. This is more an issue in areas next to interstate power lines, though in those with EMF sensitivity, even the regular home electricity contributes. I do not think cell phones are a significant factor, though I would prefer not to live next door to a cell phone tower. ;-)
