Former architect Emilie, a resident of France’s Ambert village, has a very rare disease. Emile is suffering from electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS), and therefore she cannot be in the vicinity of any modern electronic devices.  

 
Researchers said the  most common reaction for a person sensitive to electromagnetic frequencies is a warm burning sensation in the area most affected. This could either be the face or one side of the head, or even a general burning sensation throughout the body, medical researchers said. 
 
Experts also feel that it is often described as similar to being sunburnt. There may also be physical signs such as skin rashes or blemishes as well as eye problems and a feeling that one’s mucus membranes have dried up. 
 
According to researchers, some of the symptoms of EHS could be having problems with concentration, loss of memory or a tingling or prickling sensation across the face.
