Factors associated with prospective development of environmental annoyance.
Department of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, Lund University, Lund, Sweden.
OBJECTIVES: Idiopathic environmental intolerance (IEI) has in cross-sectional studies been associated with emotional problems and psychiatric disorders. However, in the absence of prospective studies it has not been possible to determine whether emotional problems precede the onset of IEI, or are a consequence of IEI. The purpose of this study was to address this issue in a prospective panel study design.
