Do anyone else suffer from multiple chemical sensitivity?

Since giving birth to my son nearly seven years ago, I have become increasingly sensitive to all types of smells and strong odors. At one time, I was so sensitive that I couldn't even go into a store like Walmart without having to immediately go home and lie down. I had noticed some improvement, but now I seem to be getting bad again. It's like my immune system is low or something. Does anyone have any advice on how to get better? Thanks!

Yes, I've been to many doctors, yet I'm still suffering. My problem is beyond allergies, because whenever I smell something strong, I get really sick, like headaches, nausea, dizziness, extreme fatigue, body aches and trouble breathing.

I also have multiple sensitivity, but not quite as bad as you have it. At least I am able to go inside stores if I don't stick around very long. I am right now tossing out every item in my home with artificial anything in it, and replacing everything with organic and all-natural products. It's expensive, but it's cheaper than my having hives, all over body itch, severe migraines, fatigue, vertigo, and moodiness. Thus far, from doing this, I have noticed an improvement in my general health.
