chemical intolerance

I desperately need an opinion as to what is wrong with me; no one has been able to help me. I believe I am allergic to chemicals such as paint, aerosols such as hair sprays, and all household cleaning chemicals. My symptoms when I have these spells are: ringing in ears, bad taste in mouth and a metallic smell to my breath, cold chills, burning in feet and legs, symptoms of bladder infection (when checked, no infection is found), having to use bathroom every 15 to 30 minutes, constipation between spells, after several days of constipation, I have stomach cramps, then bowels move 3 to 4 times a day for several days, then ends with migraine a headache and high blood pressure of 200/120 and up.
Have you ever heard of anything like this? Would truly appreciate any advice or help you can offer.

It is more useful to consider chemical sensitivity as a toxic syndrome. That is to say, one is carrying a load of toxins similar to those one reacts to so that any additional exposure tips the scales into reaction - an emergency attempt to throw off the toxic load and at least avoid further exposure and assimilation. If this is the case, then clearly detoxification is the avenue one would want to follow.
