Electrically sensitive?

Daily Mail headlines and sub-headlines are always good for a chuckle. A few weeks back, this photo was accompanied by the following:

No, she's NOT a beekeeper. This woman believes that her bizarre headgear can save her from the dangerous electrosmog all around us. Can she possibly be right?

Thing is, if you read the article, you quickly discover the condition is no laughing matter. Since diagnosing herself as "electrically sensitive" in May 2005, this poor woman has been stuck at home, unable to go out and function in the world.

Now, I have always noticed I feel a bit toxic after using a cellphone, but sticking in one of those earbuds seems to solve it for me. Anyone else have some electrically sensitive stories to share? Maybe there's more to electrosmog than most of us think.
