  Emergency and Perfumes - MCS Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Recognition
Although many EMTs have been reported to be kind, courteous and respectful of MCS patients as well as patients in general, others have been rude and ready to assume the person they are treating is "crazy" or on drugs.
It is unfortunate that most MCS patients do not wear identification bracelets that would notify the EMT of their condition, but many are unable to wear metal bracelets due to allergies and sensitivities to the very metals the ID bracelets are made of.
People with MCS may have to access emergency services because of an exacerbation of their MCS symptoms or from an unexpected emergency or accident.

  Dr. Martin Pall on Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) - Nitric Oxide (NO) & Neural Sensitization
MCS sufferers report being hypersensitive to a wide variety of hydrophobic organic solvents, including gasoline vapor, perfume, diesel or jet engine exhaust, new or remodeled buildings where building materials or carpeting has outgassed various solvents, vapors associated with copy machines, many solvents used in industrial settings, cleaning materials and cigarette and other smoke.
Most MCS sufferers trace their sensitivity to chemicals to a chemical exposure at a particular time in their life, often a single, high level exposure to organic solvents or to certain pesticides, notably organophosphates or carbamates.
Some MCS cases are traced to a time period where the person lived or worked in a particular new or newly remodeled building ("sick building syndrome") where the outgassing of the organic solvents may have had a role in inducing MCS.

 Multiple Chemical Sensitivitity (MCS)
MCS is a chronic condition with the patient usually experiencing some level of unwellness all the time.
MCS sufferers often lose their jobs as they can't tolerate the chemicals in the work environment, and relationships often break down as the partner is unable to understand or adapt to living without the use of common chemical products.
In MCS sufferers, blood flow to certain areas of the brain may be reduced or abnormally chronically, and be further reduced or altered after exposure to an offending chemical.

 Multiple Chemical Sensitivity
However, because MCS sufferers react to chemicals at levels that are hundreds or thousands of times lower than allowable occupational exposures, traditional toxicology dictates that their symptoms cannot be caused by chemical exposures.
Gots says, "[E]verything that is known about MCS to date strongly suggests behavioral and psychogenic explanations for symptoms."[1,pg.280] In other words, if you exhibit some or all of the symptoms of MCS, you are probably crazy and if your doctor thinks otherwise, he or she is probably a charlatan.
MCS is "initiated" by a high exposure (for example, a chemical fire, or spill) or by repeated moderate exposure to pesticides or solvents or some other strong chemical(s) such as those found in chemical dumps or used in remodeling homes or offices, including new carpeting.

 I Background and Historical Review
The condition now most commonly known as multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) was brought to the attention of the U.S. medical establishment when the late Theron Randolph, a physician trained in allergy and immunology, reported that a number of his patients reacted adversely to chemicals in their environment (Randolph, 1952).
MCS patients have associated their symptoms with many substances, including colognes and perfumes, aerosol air freshener, laundry detergent, gasoline exhaust, cleaners, insecticide sprays, and cigarette smoke (Ziem, 1992; Lax and Henneberger, 1995).
Topics that have been debated include: whether MCS is a distinct disease entity, its etiology (or etiologies), its pathophysiology, how to define the condition, how it should be treated, and how it should be approached in the legal and legislative arenas.

 Multiple Chemical Sensitivity
MCS proponents suggest that the immune system is like a barrel that continually fills with chemicals until it overflows and symptoms appear.
Most physicians who diagnose and treat MCS identify themselves as "clinical ecologists" or "specialists in environmental medicine." About 400 of them belong to the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM, which Randolph founded in 1965 as the Society for Clinical Ecology, is composed mainly of medical and osteopathic physicians.
The Environmental Protection Agency is considering a proposal to recognize MCS as a disease and to promote special acommodations for people who claim to have it.

 The Chemical Injury Information Network - a complete resource for the chemically injured
Until TDS was discovered and applied to MCS, this cross sensitization phenomenon was thought to be impossible by MCS adversaries because no immune system mechanism has even been established for it.
Kailin's findings were rejected by both clinical ecologists and MCS adversaries because both sides maintained that to exist at all, MCS had to be immune system mediated.
Autoimmunity is not suspected as the triggering mechanism for MCS, but rather it is a consequence of the body's inability to convert toxins in to harmless by-products fast enough.

 Overlapping Disorders: CFS, FMS, MCS, and GWS
As with CFS and MCS, the onset of FMS may be gradual or sudden.
MCS usually starts from a chronic (long lasting) or acute (short but high level) exposure to one or more "sensitizing" toxins such as formaldehyde, the pesticide Dursban, and carbonless copy paper.
The MCS overlap was perfectly symmetrical, with up to 67% of both CFS and FMS patients reporting a worsening of symptoms following exposure to air pollution, cigarette smoke, solvent fumes or perfumes.
