Hi Mamaj :lol:
I've never heard of Multiple Chemical Sensory Syndrome. But, I did some research and here is what I found:
Multiple chemical sensitivity syndrome is more common among women than men. In addition, 40% of people with chronic fatigue syndrome and 16% of people with fibromyalgia have multiple chemical sensitivity syndrome as well (that is a very interesting fact to me!). Some doctors consider this disorder to be psychologic in cause, probably a type of anxiety disorder similar to agoraphobia (fear of going out in public) or a panic attack. Others believe the disorder may be a type of allergic reaction. Various changes in the immune system may occur, supporting the idea of an allergic reaction. However, there is no consistent pattern of such changes among people who have this syndrome, and the cause remains unknown.
This disorder is marked by multiple symptoms in multiple organ systems (usually the neurological, immune, respiratory, skin, "GI," and/or musculoskeletal) that recur chronic-ally in response to multiple chemical exposures. MCS usually starts with either an acute or chronic toxic exposure, after which this initial sensitivity broadens to include many other chemicals and common irritants (pesticides, perfumes and other scented products, fuels, food additives, carpets, building materials, etc.).
The symptoms commonly include difficulty breathing, sleeping and/or concentrating, memory loss, migraines, nausea, abdominal pain, chronic fatigue, aching joints and muscles, and irritated eyes, nose, ears, throat and/or skin. In addition, some with MCS show impaired balance and increased sensitivity not just to odors but also to loud noises, bright lights, touch, extremes of heat and cold, and electromagnetic fields.
Multiple Symptoms: acute abdominal pain - asthma, headaches, rashes -
chronic fatigue & weakness - concentration & memory loss - muscle & joint pains - numbness, tingling, twitching - sore eyes, ears, nose & throat
Multiple Organs: Central Nervous System - Eye, Ear, Nose & Throat -
Gastrointestinal - Musculoskeleta - Peripheral Nervous System - Respiratory - Skin
Multiple Senses: hypersensitive to smells - photosensitive, blurred vision-
intolerant of loud noises - bothered by abnormal tastes - hypersensitive to touch & temperature extremes - impaired "senses" of balance, coordination & concentration.
Multiple Exposures: alcohol & medications - caffiene & food additives -
raw fuels & engine exhaust - new carpet & furnishings - paint & renovation materials - perfume & scented products - pesticides & herbicides -
solvents & other VOCs.
I hope that this information was helpful
Peace and Blessings
Look For The Good and Praise It!
