    Does anyone who has mcs sensitivity like this, I feel like everything is going black then feel faint. I may not necessarily faint, just this awful weird blackout sensation.
    I am highly chemically sensitive as well as food issues

    Yes, I have reacted that way to strong chemical smells, but fortunately I have gotten well enough that I rarely feel more than a little woozy from chemical exposure.

    Please take care of yourself and cover your nose and mouth whenever needed.

    I should say that I had to leave a Bed Bath & Beyond last week because of the horrible fake scent they seem to pipe through the vents; pretty sure I would have fainted if I'd stayed there much longer.

    Just starting with a "safe" diet and slowly increasing challenging foods; more rest, plenty of water, slowly taking some milk thistle to help my liver, making sure I'm getting all necessary nutrients via supplementation.

    I still take butterbur, fexofenadine, and enzymes daily, along with nutritional supplements.

    I have become almost housebound due to airborne salicylates. The best thing you can do is make sure you always carry something to wear over your nose when goingout, the mask I use is similar to what dentists wear, and although it is not perfect it does help if I have to pop out.

    I now can't handle the fumes of my multi fuel burner there is nothing wrong with it, it may be the coal or the wood!!!
    But every time I open it to refuel, I fall asleep 30 mins after, just like my chemical reaction.
    Yes I have tried different logs.

    Drink water and get fresh air when you feel nausea. Also have children's Benadryl liquid at the ready to hold off an attack.
