Similar term(s): Electrosensitivity, Electrical sensitivity.
Perceived hypersensitivity to exposure to electric and magnetic fields (EMFs)
is described mainly by subjective symptoms (redness, tingling, burning, dryness
of the skin) as well as by fatigue, tiredness, concentration difficulties,
dizziness, nausea, heart palpitation, and digestive disturbances. It appears
that hypersensitivity to electric and magnetic fields is an unclear health
problem whose cause has yet to be determined.

meaning an ill effect caused by the expectation or belief that something – in
this case electromagnetic fields – is harmful (a negative placebo effect).
