Does any one else suffer MCS with their FM.


Doretta - July 24

Yes. I had the MCS long before I was hurting all over and diagnosed with FMS.


Stephanie - July 31

Yes/ I have not been able to use a lot of cosmetics, can not tolerate mint and menthol- including that in most dental products, react to fabric conditioners and can not tolerate my husband using dentyl (a mouthwash. I also react to many cleaning products, especially those that deal with limescale.

Thank you Doretta and Stephanie, I thought that I was the odd person out as I have developed serious reactions to certain food dyes, some medicines, cosmetics, cleaning products and even my husbands aftershave. Once again thank you both.

What happens when you have this sensitivity? Is is like allergy, asthma or nausea symptoms?


Mary T. - August 14

Joni. The symptoms are varied with different products. With food dyes especially those in the pink range (120"s) I have had a severe anaphylatic reaction. This causes a sudden drop in blood pressure and collapse. I have to carry an epe-pen with me where ever go. With some of the drugs which include Penicillin, morphine, bactrim, cephalsporins, erythromysin, I can get a mild to sever rash or a hot burning and raising of the skin. With anaesethics I react by severe vomiting. I am an asthmetic and this is effected by cosmetics, perfumes and a lot of household cleaning products.
This reaction can be severe. Hope this answers your question. Mary T.


Doretta - August 19

I have different reactions to various products. Some mild, some severe. My mouth will get dry with a burning and tingling sensation and feels like my throat is swelling. Instant headache when exposed to perfumes and scented candles with a general feeling of weekness and nausia. I but everything unscented.
