EMFs, Vertigo and Dizziness


This post is mostly just a summary of the published science on the association between EMFs and vertigo/dizziness.

In a study of 420,000 cases of hospitalisations in Denmark, there was a 10–20% increase of of vertigo and migraine above the standard ratio. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2632742/

According to Dr Martin Pall, Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences, Washington State University – in his review of Neuropsychiatric disorders attributed to EMFs – vertigo/Dizzyness is the 7th most studied disorder. His full list of EMF disorders are:

  • Sleep disturbance/insomnia (17 studies)
  • Headache (14 studies)
  • Fatigue/tiredness (11 studies)
  • Depression/depressive symptoms (10 studies)
  • Dysesthesia (vision/hearing/olfactory dysfunction) (10 studies)
  • Concentration/attention/cognitive dysfunction (10 studies)
  • Dizziness/vertigo (9 studies)
  • Memory changes (8 studies)
  • Restlessness/tension/anxiety/stress/agitation/feeling of discomfort (8 studies)
  • Irritability (7 studies)
  • Loss of appetite/body weight (6 studies)
  • Skin tingling/burning/inflammation/dermographism (6 studies)
  • Nausea (5 studies)


In a Polish study (587 participants), dizziness was reported by 18.6% of them (https://bit.ly/3pHVkzZ). The average number of daily calls was 5 and the average duration of call was 3 minutes or less.

In a Saudi study it was found that 2.4% of participants experienced dizziness related to mobile phone use (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/15195201)

In a questionnaire of 17 Radiology hospital operators of MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) devices 35% said they experiences vertigo/dizziness. Obviously the general public are not exposed to MRI machines, I include this only to establish a link between magnetic fields and vertigo. (https://bit.ly/2HfCSgz)
