Fragrances give me headaches - Lee

I get a headache the next day. Which is why I never figured out the cause before doing failsafe! - Ros

IBS, same reaction as eating a cream potato. Don't usually get a reaction if I've used the Azep spray - It took me ages to figure out! I spend a few hours one day a week at a place, after about 4 weeks I realised I reacted every time I went to that place and that's what I was reacting to rather than the FS food I ate for dinner each of those nights. Since I started taking the spray, I stopped reacting each day I go there - Jan

Forgot to comment about skin products. I use as FS as I can find. I use unscented everything. I couldn't figure out where a fragrance was coming from and it drove me nuts - the toilet paper roll was scented! - Jan

That is very interesting as my son certainly reacts to fragrance. I always thought it was just fairly immediate hyperactivity but it may explain some gut type reactions that he has where I cannot work out what the problem was - Rachel

Severe brain fog, anger, itchy sometimes, swollen face - often delayed as in I wake the next day with very puffy face, sore throat, anxiety etc - Teresa

Pains in my legs and hands and headaches/ pains in my head 😞 – Julie

Nasal congestion, headache, sneezing, watery eyes - could be others but sometimes hard to tell what has caused certain symptoms - Lisa

Migraines - Michelle

Headache, sore lips and tongue, fatigue, brain fog - Eli

Puffy face, blocked sinuses/head, hayfever type symptoms, difficulty breathing, hoarse voice, headache/migraine, sore eyes, brain fog / difficulty concentrating (and later remembering) – Kerry

Headache, brain fog, fatigue, dizziness, weakness, sometimes rashes - Rosemary

Duodenal/stomach pain, constant burping while exposed, light headed/dizzy, can't focus/think properly, puffy eyes, itchy throat – Ali

Headache, nausea and stuffy nose. Not sure if grumpiness is also a reaction. Maybe I’m just cross that I have to smell fragrance! - Linda

Instant headache - Heather

For those of you that get brain fog, migraine, head things from fragrance, try breathing through your mouth until you get away from offending smells. Works for my girl – Jean

Nausea, tinnitus, extreme tiredness, coughing, phlegm in the throat, sometimes chest constriction & pain – Sally

Burning sinuses, chest pains, asthma, brain fog, uncontrollable crying, depression, headaches - Jude

Instant headaches, my eyes start to twitch, sometimes they feel like they are rolling back in my head. Two of my daughters get very angry, it’s like instantly  - Kerin

Dizziness - Nicky

My brain stops thinking straight. E.g. I walked through a cloud of fragrance in a pharmacy one day and half an hour later in the supermarket I was standing there with my mind going round in circles thinking 'I know there's something else' repeatedly. I had to just pay for what I already had and walk out. It increases my fatigue also - Kathy

Neck ache, headache, eye twitch, feels like constricting blood vessels or something moving in my head, lack of focus, mood change, then fatigue - Irene

It starts with burning eyes, then red, burning hands, then burning inside my mouth, aching all over, brain fog, headache, then progresses to nausea & on occasion vomiting - Sharyn
