Tip of the Day

According to Devin Starlanyl, M.D., "At the onset of multiple chemical sensitivities, a person may become sensitized to one chemical, such as formaldehyde from insulation or hair spray, after an exposure. Then, other environmental irritants, previously tolerated, begin to provoke allergic or sensitivity reactions. The signs and symptoms are many and varied. They include fatigue, headache, muscle aches, coughing, watery eyes, and tremors. Multiple chemical sensitivities are often present in people with FMS, which can make medication difficult."
