Imagine if you were a food critic and suddenly developed a wheat/dairy/corn/carb/fat allergy.
Or what if you were a car mechanic and the smell of gas brought you out in itchy purple hives and then made you have convulsions?
This is the fate of computer technician Phil Inkly. Or, rather, former computer technician.
Inkly, you see, claims to be allergic to pretty much everything to do with, well, technology.
You name it and it affects him. If it's some kind of gadget, if it's even a battery, it might give him nosebleeds, burning headaches, sleep problems, or even blackouts.
These symptoms have caused him to move into the woods, as far away from technology as he can be.
And yet, as the Daily Mail reports, no doctor has diagnosed his condition.
Instead, Inkly himself diagnosed it as Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity.
