    For those of you, who are on the fence as to what is wrong with you, take a pack of "Black Flag Roach Motels" and sleep with them in your room overnight. The Pheromones in them are a trigger for me. Nobody in my family has a problem, but me. There are no toxic chemicals in them, so they say.

    I believe I have mav, but I've got some ear symptoms including fullness and dizzyness, lemon bioflavonoids seem to make my symptoms worse

    A lot of mavers are sensitive to citrus.

    I did work for a lady who had a problem with natural gas. Her husband told me that they put her in a controlled environment for a few days and her IQ went up. As soon as they introduced gas to her, it cut her IQ. I have never heard that one before, but they have had to strip there house of all gas appliances and certain types of furniture and carpet. She told me that carrots make her cry. That one made me laugh.

    It's called MCS - Multiple Chemical Sensitivities. It's a real disorder even if not many believe in it. I have it and I have insisted on having my environment stripped of smelly chemicals in my place of work. I will not enter a room that has scented candles, plug-ins, sprayed perfumed air fresheners, etc. I just will not.

    It took a while to get that accommodation from my work but now they know to not insist.

    scented candles and plug ins.......my wife insist on using them. I never thought that the smell of something would cause such grief. Bed, Bath and Beyond knocks me out after the first step I take in that store.

    That's too bad. You would feel much better without that extra bombardment.

    I have to hold my breath just walking by the entrance of that store. Going in is an impossibility if I wish to be standing on my own 3 minutes later.

    I know what you mean about the meds. My neurologist has tried 2 with me. I try them for a couple of days, read about them, freak out and stop taking them....lol!! The last one I have, Effexor, apparently you can't get off of. Wat the heck are we to do?.. :/
