Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Syndrome (MCS) causes hypersensitivity to certain chemicals and odors. Other side effects of this syndrome include extreme sensitivity to lights, temperature, and loud sounds. Typically, people with chemical sensitivity find that they are first sensitive to only one particular trigger, but the syndrome soon intensifies, making exposure to a variety of products troublesome. MCSS causes symptoms that affect all systems in your body, including the skin, respiratory system, musculoskeletal system, gastrointestinal tract, and neurological and immune systems.

Multiple chemical sensitivity affects between 17% and 34% of Americans on a yearly basis and is also know as Idiopathic Environmental Intolerance. Because people suffering from fibromyalgia are already at an increased risk of similar symptoms, they tend to be at an increased risk to show symptoms of MCSS. Up to two-thirds of those who suffer from fibromyalgia pain will also have to deal with MCSS. Like fibromyalgia, MCSS typically affects women more than men, particularly those women between the ages of 20 and 50.
