I have a user, who also happens to be high up in the org chart, who claims hypersensitivity to radio waves. This person has requested that I disable or otherwise limit the performance of the access point located near their workstation to alleviate their symptoms of dizziness, fogginess, etc.
My research shows me that RF hypersensitivity is not a diagnosable condition. Studies apparently have show that people who claim to suffer from this cannot reliably identify when they are in an area of high RF activity or not.
Im curious to know if any of you have encountered this kind of complaint? Have I not done enough research and this is in fact a real thing? Is this entirely an HR issue? The complaint isnt going to go away and im not sure what else to say other than: Thats not a real thing so stop whining.
Any comments or feedback are welcome.
Wonder if that user has a cell phone.
The very first comment, I believe, was spot on:
Just tell them you did it and see what happens. Chances are they’ll believe you and their symptoms will go away.
