Triggers and Causes

Computer Wifi (wireless) is a cause for me

  • By Richard

    Hello:
    Just joined the forums today on the advice of a friend who suggested I make my migraine trigger known in the hopes that it may help fellow sufferers.

    For me, a wireless signal from a home computer router ( WiFi ) will set off either a low grade headache or a migraine.

    Specifically, I am talking about the devices provided by an Internet company to a home user that connects the home user to the Internet. I won’t mention manufacturer names, but some of the devices can be connected via phone line or by cable. As a ‘feature’ some of the devices have “WiFi” which sends out a wireless signal in the users’ home to allow them to connect their other devices ( laptops, iPads etc ) to the Internet.

    For over 10 years, I have noticed that if a device has its Wireless signal turned on, it will cause me to start getting headache symptoms within minutes of being in its vicinity.
    The closer I am, the more intense the headache. And the further away from it I am, the less intense, but still noticeable, the effect is.

    This has been a very unfortunate development for me, as I work in the computer industry, and am frequently near wireless signals in the workplace.

    The reason I have posted on this forum, is to make other readers aware of a possible trigger for their migraines.

    Unfortunately, WiFi signals as a trigger or cause for illnesses is not taken seriously at this point in time. A quick search of the Internet will return MANY links to discussions.
    Almost all of them include the comment that they are never taken seriously, and learn to deal with the situation in their own way.

    A friend of mine, who has seen me dealing with this for several years, remarked the other day that there may be headache/migraine sufferers who have their home WiFi turned on, and may be causing their own migraines, and NOT REALIZING IT !!! He suggested that I post my experiences on a migraine message forum in the hopes that it may help at least one person.

    A simple test is to turn off your home wireless signal and wait a few hours to see if your
    headaches/migraine goes away. You can’t get a more simple test than that.

    A recent event for me:
    I helped a guy setup his new printer that he purchased.
    When I arrived at his apartment, my head started to feel like someone was twisting it from within, and my eyes felt like they were being pulled into crossing. My headache was beginning. I looked around the room, and saw an Internet router with flashing lights on the shelf. Yes, there was the culprit. He said he wanted his printer hooked up wirelessly. Not saying a word, I began the procedure and within minutes, got the printer hooked up and printing wirelessly from the guys laptop computer. And I got out of there as fast as possible !!

    It took at least a 1/2 hour before my headache subsided. I am truly amazed. Shocked. At how other people can sit in the same room as a wireless router that is emitting a signal, and they are not affected. Without going into it too far, I DO BELIEVE that a wireless signal negatively affects people in the long run, but am not going to go into that in this forum.

    I am posting this with the thought that maybe at least one of you readers out there may find this useful. Do you have a wireless signal in your own home that is causing your migraines? The simple test is to unplug it, and see if your pounding headache clears up.
    No cost. No complicated procedure. Just unplug the darn thing and see what happens.

    Myself, I have NO wireless devices in my apartment. And yes, my neighbors all have wireless signals blaring out. And yes, they are negatively affecting me, but thank goodness, the signals are far enough way that they are tolerable. ( for the most part ).

    If this post has helped any of you, or might help anyone you know, then I am ecstatic.
    My cell phone does NOT affect me ( thank goodness) and I have a free app on it that detects wifi signals and their strength. ( I use that in my line of work also )

    For the past 10 years, I have been living with headaches / migraines that have had me down on my knees in pain, sick to my stomach, and cloudy headed.
    I found out that FOR ME, it is caused by WiFi signals from wireless routers.
    I avoid wireless routers as much as possible, and I have reduced my headaches markedly.

    Hope this helps…

    Hi Richard,

    Welcome to the discussion forum and thank you so much for your comments and sharing your story with us.

    It’s not out of the realm of possibilities that WiFi signals may be triggering a migraine attack for you. Maybe others will benefit from this information.

    I also believe this is an issue, to varying degrees of sensitivity for people. Wifi goes through walls, it certainly goes through your skull too. Our neurologist told us point blank, reduce screen time, especially 2 hours before bed, DO NOT charge your phone near your bed. I took the additional step of turning down all our wifi devices at bedtime…router, cable modem, printer, PC’s, and putting all cell phones in airplane mode. My daughter now does not wake with a migraine headache, and my very skeptical husband (who doesn’t get headaches) found that he wakes far less now during the night.

    I am considering going fully wired. Big expense, big inconvenience compared to the portability we are all used to. But we may have to do it for her sake.

    Until a year ago I would have laughed at the suggestion, having worked with a wi-fi router a yard away from my head for about 5 years or more.

    But last year we started having broadband problems and the telephone engineer suggested we move the router closer to the wall socket that was in our lounge, it solved the problem but created another one. At about the same time we bought a Roku box, a box that you can stream video to your TV wirelessly. The new router location meant it was behind the sofa about a yard behind my head, the Roku box beneath the TV 5 yards in front of me, meaning the signal was transmitting through my skull.

    Over a weekend we decided to view some boxed sets, after an hour or so i suffered what I now know to be a migraine with aura, which scared me, having probably half a dozen events over the weekend, whilst still viewing the boxed sets, culminating with a massive headache sickness and an early night. Had never suffered such before.

    Worried as to what was happening, I started questioning what I was doing differently, it quickly dawned on me that maybe the router/Roku box maybe the problem. I moved the router, set up cabled sockets around the house and switched off wi-fi when I could, which is a problem as other people in the house want a wi-fi connection. To overcome this I set up an upstairs and downstairs access point, so wherever I am, I’m as far away as possible from wifi transmission. It also times out overnight.

    I think Richard above is alluding to the fact that exposure may be accumulative, that being the reason why I was able to sit so close for so long with out problem, although the difference may have been that my computer was wired to it and although wi-fi was on it wasn’t transmitting.

    This happened 9 months ago, thankfully it hasn’t happened since.

    Of course there could be other reasons as to why my auras happened, but quite a coincidence.

    I do wonder about peoples future health, especially the young if going forward wi-fi is an issue.

    hi – I have been experiencing wifi related headache from more than an year. Surprisingly, I work all through the day in my office in wifi zone which doesn’t cause any problem. However, when I come and use internet by switching on the router for nearly 1-2 hours is causing headaches varying from mild to high headaches sometimes.
    Another interesting fact to observe here is – the Wifi router used in my office is a very popular brand
    the wifi router used at my home is a different brand but still this is also famous.

    I don’t know the solution to get rid of this problem. But would need internet badly at home also, atleast for an hour a day.

    Anyone who knows how to overcome wifi headaches, please respond.

    I would have thought you were crazy a few months ago, but now I’ll have to say you may be on to something. I am looking at everything in my life that changed a few months ago to trigger my chronic migraines. My wife and I have gone over everything. Nothing at all stands out. An interesting thought in the back of my head is that I got the new echo dot right around the time my migraines started. It is wireless and sits on the end table next to the sofa where I sit. This weekend I will not be in the house, will be interesting to see if my headaches lessen or stop. I also plan on moving it when we get back or even shutting it off. Thank you, gives me something else to look at in my search to end these headaches.

    I can share some information on this topic. I have been sensitive to wireless signals for over 10 years now and have been experimenting on what maybe the cause. Firstly, if the wifi in your house triggers migraines you turn off the wifi through your router settings and hard wire all devices with ethernet. There is also a way to do this for ipods, ipads, and cell phones.
    Also if wifi signals are causing migraine’s then it is likely cell phone signals are also. This has nothing to do with the brand of router you use or the type of computer or device you use. It is a very complicated subject and that is why no one in the world can explain why it happens. The first thing I can tell you is that the network is what controls how the devices operate. So for the person who can tolerate wifi at work but not at home check and see if the internet service provider is the same. Also offices or businesses will get different internet connections than homes. Wireless sensitivity is like an allergy so the more stressors you have in an environment the more sensitive you will be. Avoidance is the only strategy that works if it affects you in a certain location.

    Also for Maddy going hard wired is not expensive at all. You do have to live with some ethernet cables on the floors but that’s not a big sacrifice for health.

      Hi Maddy it cost us $11 to run ethernet cables to apple box and to computer. It’s just a bit messy with wires running up our hall. I’ve put a small carpet over. What is a bit expensive is to buy a Electrosmog meter! But so worth it! Without the meter you don’t know what is sending very strong signals. Our printer was sending a high wifi signal when it was off! Also some mobiles are very strong! I can find low radiation areas that may mean moving a few feet. I’ve found shops that hardly have wifi and some are super strong! Our meter has been a life saver!! You can buy them on line from $180- $800 which is unnecessary!

      Ethernet cables do not need to be on the floors they can be wired like any professional wiring in a home with socket points at as many locations as you like.

      Let’s be straight up about this serious WIFI SCAM – Evidentually everybody will get sick and who will be liable, and after spending all that money on wireless devices, then have to spend more money going back to cable, SICK SOCIETY MENTALITY ALLOWED IN THIS COUNTRY and GLOBALLY CRUEL SOCIETY – GOOD< BAD AND THE UGLY

    I forgot to add one more thing. What we are experiencing are not migraines. It is called electrical hypersensitivity syndrome or radio wave illness. It has been known that wireless or microwave signals cause negative health problems for many years. If you google the topic you will see that people in the army suffered from radio wave illness from using wireless communication devices. So yes, headaches are one of the symptoms but they are not typical migraines.

      I had an MRI scan done as my headaches got so bad I was sure I had a brain tumour. We discovered lots of other people had the same pain from their wifi modem. The MRI showed some changes in my brain that were in the exactly same area as other people who experienced headaches from wifi. We bought some ethernet cable-very inexpensive, and hardwired the computer and apple box. Problem solved in our home. Now I just can’t visit friends who have the NBN with wifi!

      what about getting regulations up to date? Why must we suffer for the sake of industry and perceived progress! People need to revolt on this issue. It’s not good enough to just say, oh you go off and get a cable for yourself. We need to shut down all wireless activity immediately.

      Oh that was a migraine I had. I know a migraine, and that was one. Still dealing with the tail end of it, ~ the various non-headachey symptoms of the migraine aura. Clear cause and effect experienced here.

      While it’s true many a headache is caused by this, and is not a migraine, it’s not true all headaches caused by this are not migraines nor that no migraines are caused by it.

      (like the migraine symptom identical examples given in the anecdotes of the original post and others in this thread).

    Hi all

    I have had very bad headaches for the past five years – they are being caused by wireless internet (wifi). This is and has been deeply distressing – I can’t stay in hotels. My work environment is very difficult. There is more and more information out there, see

    I have been suffering with chronic migraines for a long time now. I found this page by researching into if WiFi can cause migraines. After all the signals are going straight through our heads. What I have found is alot of people dismissing it because you can’t go anywhere in a built up area without being exposed to WiFi and everyone else seems okay, but the more scientific answer is ‘We don’t know’.

    Id be interested in finding out if WiFi truly is a cause for some people, or if the placebo effect is taking hold. If you suffer with migraines and you think WiFi is the cause, investigate by getting a member of your family to turn the WiFi either on or off for sections of the day and keep a detailed headache diary to see if there is a correlation without you yourself knowing if the WiFi was on at that time or not.

    Unfortunately I have too many WiFi signals around to be able to practically give me a WiFi free period in time. So I really would be interested to find out if people can document cases of this occuring.

    In response to the person further up the thread who has linked the amazon echo dot to their migraines, I have one as well and cannot have it plugged in anywhere near where I spend alot of time. The power supply for it is a ‘switching’ mode supply. Which means it turns on and off very quickly to get the desired amount of power. This causes a high pitched sound which is in the upper end of what we can hear, noises like those have already been proven to be a trigger of migraine because it hyperstimulates your auditory nerves.

    To anyone who suffers from frequent migraines I sympathise with your pain, my condition has quite literally destroyed all aspects of my life. I wish you all the best of health, and hopefully with some further research through sufferers we can identify more causes.

      Yes – even if a person switches off the wifi function on the router, people also have to disable to wifi function on the iPad or the Smart Phone too. Also Cordless Dect Phones are responsible and wireless too and need to be switched for Landline Corded Phones, Anything that is wireless needs to be disabled, bluetooth and data function on phones disabled, even in the car, the stereo is enabled for bluetooth, this also needs to be disabled, not just the bluetooth on the smart phones.

    Hello. I have suffered migraine headaches for over ten years. However, some years ago, with the advent of WIFI routers (802.11a), I recognized that WIFI was another source of my migraines. I was eager to purchase a WIFI router, purchased and installed one, then suddenly I felt a migraine coming on. Within 30 minutes I got sick and went to bed, but could not sleep as the headache was the worst I have had and was not going away, and I felt nauseous. I knew something was wrong as I never had a migraine coming on so suddenly. I jumped out of bed and unplugged the router, minutes later my headache began to subside along with the sick feeling. It was at this point I recognized my inability to tolerate WIFI signals. Some years later, the same thing occurred when I tried to pair my phone using Bluetooth. Cell phones give me migraines if I place it too close to my head or if I spend very long on the phone. A couple years ago I bought an 802.11ac WIFI router, to see if the new specifications would not cause migraines to flare up. Sadly, I still get headaches. I have completely wired my house and disabled all WIFI signals in the router (2.4 + 5 GHz). In reference to Ajai comment about a placebo test, I turn on the WIFI for a quick minute every now and then to allow my Samsung cell phones to update. One day I forgot it on and went to work. Had a beautiful day at work and when I arrived home and started to relax, I felt a migraine coming on, then I remembered I checked the router and realized I forgot WIFI on. Similarly, I also feel headaches coming on when I visit friend’s homes who have WIFI or at the office. But the further I am from the source, the better. I have since learned from my doctor about the other sources of my migraines which is mainly food related and sun-related (glare). I can relate to those suffering from normal and WIFI migraines. All the best. Thank you for your posts, some years ago when I first searched, I found no information, I believed I was a unique case, or probably that I had a brain issue. My friends joked about me, thinking I was weird.

      Yes, thanks for this comment, I’m the same! I know when the wifi is on by accident, say we reset the router, something like this, or I know when neighbour is in and out, as I have an RF meter reader which I had under my bed for about 2 years before I started using it. In the beginning in 2010 I thought, what did I buy this piece of junk for only years later realising the RF Meter to measure microwave radiation is a huge eye opener to the ignorance of our fellow citizens that are kept in the dark by God himself! when I first had a broadband router, it would of been a wireless enabled as well as Ethernet Cable Fibre Superfast Broadband. The Router was on my DESK for a few years! Hours on the Mobile phone with a Bill Pay Contract Mobile Phone for Business. I have been getting fried like Kentucky fried Vegetable! Keep up the feedback as the more feedback we give, the more we will reveal how much exposure we are really getting…think about a Bus packed with passengers wifi free on bus from Dublin to London RTN, Think about WIFI Bus to Airport, Airport, Planes, Trains, Taxi, Sat Nav and Blue Tooth Stereos in Cars! CAR SICK???? Anybody ever feel Car SICK??? Keep sharing and please use a hand Scissors to cut my hair (not a magnetic field machine near my brain) and no I don’t want a job near a cell phone tower or bluetooth enabled headset Lidl Employees and Supervalu Killester gave me a terrible pain in the head as well as when shopping in Supervalu Raheny. It’s terrible what is happening and these phone companies are getting away with torture to hundreds, thousands of citizens (with basic human rights stolen from us) We really are treated with microwaves from the powers that go beyond governments responsibility, which I find quite weak! (A weak signal!) – Studies show exposure to magnetic fields causes Viscosity of Blood – and nobody comes to me and tells me to be careful! God Bless this mess.

    I thought I was alone with this until recently when articles online popped up with people sharing their experiences. My university of course has numerous routers most if not all have 4 to 8 antennas which probably mean they emiteven stronger waves. I would feel dizzy and nervous like an aura was coming on. Only happened in classrooms with routers placed close to me. Cisco routers seemed to worsen the issue. Maybe that broadcast differently than others.

      Let me invite you to University College Dublin and you will have all the Aura’s anybody has ever dreamed of…my co habitant has informed me it feels like somebody is clasping, clamping your head after a day at UCD Teaching! How lovely to be a qualified teacher with a masters and to be treated like a victim in the work place!

      Another contact shared the same experience about UCD, saying yes “I feel like it’s Sick Building Syndrome”

      UCD is nicely positioned across the Dual Carriage Way (Dublin to Wexford Main Road) to the State Broadcaster RTE Transmission Station! – The Cell Phone Tower has many many transmitters as well as it’s almost 1/2 the size of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. I’m sure the local wireless routers are the worst offenders, but lets be honest and admit that it’s the accumulative effect of all the routers, rte as well as all the students with enabled data and bluetooth cell phones too! walking past you continuously moving all over the place while your moving all over the place at the same time and the RF Readings are Pulsing through your body different numbers on a scale of approx 1 – 2000 – numbers of the RF Meter running up and down continuously. The best thing to do is turn the class room into a faraday cage (after michael faraday!) and ask students to leave their phones outside of the shielded class room or lecture hall.

    Headaches can lead to permanent brain damage, including loss of cells (several articles on the Web support this) so one needs to be extra careful and use cable – rather than wireless – connections as often as possible.

    Apple (to name names) are extremely gong-ho in producing keyboards that are exclusively wireless connected. Some day, perhaps, they will face action for damages that recalls the travails of the tobacco industry.

      Yes look at Carrolls Cigarette Company Website – they announced in the early 2000,s that smoking causes cancer! At least they had to be honest, finally, but the mother company is still allowed to sell such product and people in Peer Groups continue to smoke them with out asking questions even if they know the truth, it’s Peer Pressure which is sad, the other is the Addiction and then the substitute of the Ecigarette which I find pathetic.

    Hello!

    This is my first time on this site, which I found after searching for info on WIFI, migraines and hearing aids. I live in an apartment building where we, and many of the neighbors, have WIFI.

    About 3 days ago I started experiencing more powerful headaches than I had ever had before. I have been diagnosed before as anemic and so at first I thought the headaches were related to that (which they still may be). However, I also wear hearing aids and have for the past three years without incident. When I realized that the debilitating headaches I was experiencing often (though not always) are concentrated on the side of the head where the ear that I typically sleep with my hearing aid in is, I thought perhaps the hearing devices also had something to do with it.

    For the past couple of nights, I have tried sleeping with my WIFI turned off and both my hearing aids removed, and this has made a remarkable difference in the quality of my sleep. However, within moments of my waking up and turning my devices back on, the headache typically returns.

    My question is, does anyone know whether hearing aids have the ability to act as a some sort of conductor for the electromagnetic waves you were discussing? Or whether this sensitivity could somehow be brought on or exacerbated by wearing hearing aids? Would love to hear anyone’s experiences or advice on the matter. Thanks.

      If I were you, I’d stop using wifi. You can hardwire computers. The US military have released papers from many decades ago about the dangers. Also the ‘Moscow signal’ proved it causes cancer and brain damage!! Every one that worked in the embassy that the wifi was directed at got cancer eventually. It proved that the Russians are telling the truth! The US refused to believe when Russians told them to stop experimenting with it as it was harmful to human cells etc..

    I get very strong migraines from my iPad wifi and our apple TV box. I actually had some tests done and discovered the electromagnetic radiation is affecting my blood! The cells stick together and form a clumping effect so my red cells can’t travel though my capillaries & it makes me sick. I ended up buying some shielding hat liners to protect my brain. They help a lot. I’m finding more and more people are having the same problems. It’s called electromagnetic sensitivity. If you keep overexposing yourself you risk getting serious health issues. Look up 5G appeal to UN from global scientific community. There’s lots of scientific studies linked.

    I have the same migraines from wifi, mobile phones with 3G enabled, I notice lots of things such as standing on a pavement for a certain length of time where the Magnetic Field Trifield Meter shows the Magnetic Fields in Milligauss, combination of magnetic field exposure and wireless signals coming from peoples homes as well as from Cell phone Towers. I get the shocks even when in a Supermarket, in a car with other passengers travelling, in a church, in a cafe surrounded by teenagers with data online wireless, crowded locations, pubs, even occasional signals coming into the apartment from the neighbouring apartments as well as when the Co habitant comes back from work with (not) Smart Phone.

    My parents invite me in for Lunch on Boxing Day or St. Stephens Day for the Irish…there is a large iPad on the table under a magazine, how did i know it was under the magazine? then I open the lid and press the button and watch the signal strength is at about 2 bars II, which is poor signal strength and means that these iPad are 1G, 2G and 3G…4G…5G potential – they can be used as a mobile phone, texting, surfing the Internet and for listening to music and watching videos online without any Ethernet Fiber Cat 6 Shielded Cable which has potential to be 100 times faster for uploading and downloading. Then I see another (not) Smart Phone on the Dining Table, the lovely pet dogs are in the kitchen, my parents getting ready to have lunch, my brother has made a salad and some nice brown bread and other things going on, better not mention in case your Vegan or Health aware as I am naturally concerned ” As I choose to listen to the indicators, where as my brother said he ignores them as he is happy to go along the middle road with his Peer Group. My Peer group doesn’t really exist! They have all disappeared and only to be seen rarely, a polite hello, good bye! My migraine is getting worse and ask my nice parents and brother if it is possible to put the devices on Airplane mode, but the answer is NO………..so then it’s time for me to leave as I had spent 30 hours in their company. I drove to my apartment in Clontarf which isn’t perfect but it’s definitely more quiet and my migraine has reduced significantly within 1 hour, Parents have cordless phone in the other room and the WiFi also enabled on the Router, the radio on in the kitchen as well as the fridge and the neighboring houses with their cordless phones and wireless enabled too, a lot of cordless phones can be used for up to 300 meters, so even getting it in the bedrooms as the one in parents bedroom is connected to the mother cordless phone near the phone socket in the living room, so there is this continuous communication between the devices. I did notice the WiFi function enabled on the printer that the cohabitant has and I have pressed the button to switch off, I continuously check to ensure that the printer is disabled for WiFi as well as checking daily the WiFi is disabled on the router, instead we use Cat 6 cable plugged into the Router Ports at the back of the Router, at least 4 ports, to allow for 4 computer connections, the other end of the cable is plugged into the Dell Desktop Inspiron 15 8GB Ram, Computer with a wired ball mouse as well as a wired Dell Keyboard. So I’m very happy with my computer and can spend hours on the computer without getting any migraines as the signals are kept within shielded cable, so I know what works now and what doesn’t, I also have a corded telephone with a loud speaker function and get free calls at the weekend. I am turning off my mobile phone more and more as I realise even making a call is bad news for me, it also makes me more and more aware of other people with their devices, leading to severe migraines and a terrible car sickness like I’ve never experienced in all my life. It’s a continuous battle and a disability as recognised in Sweden and also I had to tell my brother that it’s an out of date Type 2B Carcinogen, actually supposed to be Type 1 from the World Health Organisation. I had to mention the Bio Initiative Report as well as invite people to join the http://www.emfhealthsummit.com on the December 29 and December 30, Thanks for this opportunity to share my message.

    Yep. Wifi as a migraine trigger, is getting more accepted now.

    Mechanisms being proposed/understood. Stuff about ion channel disruption, among many others (I saw while searching around the topic, catching a few video explanations, while suffering migraine after a wifi exposure).

    There are frequencies they could have chosen which would have been health affirming. But they did not. Speculate as you will the extent of incompetence, neglect, or intent, in that.

    This is indeed a problem that needs solved wider than our own implementations. Getting cables installed, finding non-wifi modems and routers, layering tinfoil all over like the quintessential “nutter” as the media depicts, limiting proximity and duration of exposures, is all well and good for the individual in the interim, but leaves us in an ever shrinking world (like living in a Faraday cage) as many around charge dismissively headlong into oblivion, ignoring the warning in us, the canaries in the mine, more sensitive to it. But like I say, this is getting increasingly accepted now. Hopefully sufficiently accepted before the kill net of 5G proliferates any further. Thank you all, for all you have done, and will do, to help continue to raise awareness of this vicious miasma, working toward removal/remedy.

    PS, I wonder if us “canaries in the mine”, all have CECD (a condition proposed by Dr Ethan Russo in the early 2000s), which precipitates the hypersensitivity to wifi & other electromagnetic pollution.

    If nothing else, it’s just good to know you’re not delusional/crazy. Wifi is a real harm & concern.

    Thanks for sharing this post. I am very interested in this topic. ……. We have a tendency to recollect extra of what we expertise visibly or aurally, versus what we learn.
