When I experienced tinnitus, I consulted a professional, whose lifework at the National Research Council was in the area of 'sick building syndrome'.

My journey with electro-sensitivity started a few years ago when I began to feel sharp “zaps” in my head. This pain was quite different from other headaches. It ranges in intensity from pins and needle sensations to razor sharp zaps in the posterior part of my brain, just behind the centre point.
