58-year-old Guy Hudson is one of a growing number of people who identify themselves as being 'electrosensitive'. 

This group is 'allergic' to low electromagnetic fields - the kind produced by mobile phones and WiFi - and exposure leads to a raft of physical symptoms.

Guy has suffered for the past eight years. It began with headaches but developed into 24/7 debilitating pain and he was forced to give up his work as an IT consultant.

He spent his time researching what could be wrong with him and discovered the condition 'electro-hypersensitivity' (EHS).

Realizing his headaches got worse when he used his phone, Guy began to read up on the subject.

But it was when he had WiFi installed - and his symptoms noticeably worsened - that he was convinced.

The idea of electrosensitivity was first studied in the 1970s, but in recent years there has been an upsurge in those claiming to suffer from it.

Despite this scientific tests have failed to back up their claims and many experts remain skeptical.
