Dear Scott,
my wife tells me it's genetic or I'm just plain getting old. In any event it
only seems to short term, like what I said five minutes ago. But after 20 or
more years of Xylene who knows?
However, if memory serves me correct (no pun intended) the NSH examined this
and other symptoms assoc. with xylene over a decent time period. No longer
having access to the relevant journals, I can't give you a reference, but
strongly suggest you get in touch with the NSH, and look at their archive
Regards Mike (Downunder)
