There has been a sharp rise in unspecific, often stress-associated health problems that increasingly present physicians with the challenge of complex differential diagnosis. A cause that has been accorded little attention so far is increasing electrosmog exposure at home, at work and during leisure activities, occurring in addition to chronic stress in personal and working life. It correlates with an overall situation of chronic stress that can lead to burnout.
How can physicians respond to this development?
The Austrian Medical Association has developed a guideline for differential diagnosis and potential treatment of unspecific stress-related health problems associated with electrosmog. Its core element is a patient questionnaire consisting of a general assessment of stress symptoms and a specific assessment of electrosmog exposure. The guideline is intended as an aid in diagnosing and treating EMF-related health problems.
This guideline includes details on how to proceed if EMF-related health problems are suspected. The recommended approach to diagnosis and treatment is intended as an aid and should, of course, be modified as each individual case requires.
- History of health problems and EMF exposure
- Examination and findings
- Measurement of EMF exposure
- Prevention or reduction of EMF exposure
