EHS is the same as microwave sickness. It's just another name for the same illness.

Functional brain MRI in patients complaining of electrohypersensitivity after long term exposure to electromagnetic fields

PubMed 2017

Gunnar Heuser Sylvia A Heuser

“All ten patients had abnormal functional MRI brain scans. The abnormality was often described as hyper connectivity of the anterior component of the default mode in the medial orbitofrontal area. Other abnormalities were usually found. Regular MRI studies of the brain were mostly unremarkable in these patients.”

Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS, microwave syndrome) – Review of mechanisms

Elsevier 2020

Yael Stein MD,  Iris G. Udasin MD

These are small quotes from the text:

“Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS), known in the past as “Microwave syndrome”, is a clinical condition characterized by a broad spectrum of non-specific multiple organ systems that typically occur after a person’s exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) from the environment. Numerous studies have shown biological effects at the cellular level of electromagnetic fields (EMF) at magnetic (ELF) and radio-frequency (RF) frequencies in extremely low intensities. “

“Specifically around the 1 GHz frequency band, exposures have risen by approximally 1018 times natural levels (Bandara and Carpenter, 2018)”.

“Many hypersensitive patients appear to have impaired detoxification systems that become overloaded by excessive oxidative stress (Korkina, 2009; De Luca et al., 2014)”

 

“urther studies suggest that EMF exposure may be associated with changes in cerebral blood flow which correspond to abnormalities on PET scan of the brain.”

Reliable disease biomarkers characterizing and identifying electrohypersensitivity and multiple chemical sensitivity as two etiopathogenic aspects of a unique pathological disorder

Report about EHS or/and MCS.

“Both disorders appear to involve inflammation-related hyper-histaminemia, oxidative stress, autoimmune response, capsulothalamic hypoperfusion and BBB opening, and a deficit in melatonin metabolic availability; suggesting a risk of chronic neurodegenerative disease. “

“As inflammation appears to be a key process resulting from electromagnetic field (EMF) and/or chemical effects on tissues, and histamine release is potentially a major mediator of inflammation, we systematically measured histamine in the blood of patients. Near 40% had a increase in histaminemia (especially when both conditions were present), indicating a chronic inflammatory response can be detected in these patients. 

Oxidative stress is part of inflammation and is a key contributor to damage and response. 

Nitrotyrosin, a marker of both peroxynitrite (ONOO°-) production and opening of the blood-brain barrier (BBB), was increased in 28% the cases. Protein S100B, another marker of BBB opening was increased in 15%. “

“As most patients reported chronic insomnia and fatigue, we determined the 24 h urine 6-hydroxymelatonin sulfate (6-OHMS)/creatinin ratio and found it was decreased (<0.8) in all investigated cases.”

“Finally, considering the self-reported symptoms of EHS and MCS, we serially measured the brain blood flow (BBF) in the temporal lobes of each case with pulsed cerebral ultrasound computed tomosphygmography. Both disorders were associated with hypoperfusion in the capsulothalamic area, suggesting that the inflammatory process involve the limbic system and the thalamus.”
