Kim De’Atta is a woman who is unable to leave her home without a shielded helmet. The reason? Strong Electromagnetic waves cause her chronic pain and headaches.
She believes to have a condition called “electromagnetic sensitivity”. This causes her to have severe migraines, fatigue, and have a higher susceptibility to infections when exposed to high amounts of it. It’s because of this that she is unable to leave her humble abode in Chard, Somerset.
“Most of the time people think I am mad. It is so difficult because people are not feeling it themselves,” she says. I have not seen friends and family for so long. I have had two visitors for half a day each this year. It’s heart-breaking really.”

“I had not seen my closest aunt for ten years and she didn’t really understand why. We were so close before. I could not bear it anymore and she was 91 at the time. I had to wear my shielded bed net over my head and you can imagine I got some funny looks on the bus. It was so tough for me but I’m pleased I did it because she died the next year and if I hadn’t seen her I would never have forgiven myself.”
It all started when she was 16, when she noticed that as technology began to advance, she would get random headaches and discomfort, particularly near TVs.
A few years later, she started working as a nurse. She got her first mobile phone so that she could be contacted in emergencies as she was assigned in the ICU.
“The first time I put it up to my head it was like a laser going into my brain. Every time I put it up to my head I got the pain. After that I was finding I was getting more and more fatigued and my immune system was getting knocked meaning I was getting infections.”
When her symptoms took a turn for the worst, she found out that the extreme pain was caused by electronic devices that emitted electromagnetic waves.
“At first the doctors thought I had a slipped disc in my back but that wasn’t the case. When I saw another doctor he said it was something in the environment and could be to do with the electromagnetic fields.”
“I was in the library on the computer and got these pins and needles in my arms and my face felt like it was burning. I thought I would just have to cope with it,” she recalls her past experiences with the condition.
This is when Kim had moved to Glastonbury to escape the waves. She immediately felt better when moving, but a few years later, a mobile phone mast was installed in the town and the symptoms started to appear again.

“My head felt like it was going to implode and explode at the same time. I was also getting breathlessness, heart palpitations and lower back pain. I had started to suffer from serious earaches and was becoming really sensitive to light. I had to ask a friend to pick me up because the pain was so tough and that was it, I could not live in Glastonbury anymore.”
That’s when she had decided to move once again, and then travel around the world to escape the signals. Finally, she ended up in Chard where there are fewer waves, but she still has some significant issues, causing her to where her shielded hat even at home and sleep in a net.
Sadly, the World Health Organization doesn’t recognize the condition, stating there was “no scientific basis” to link such symptoms to electromagnetic waves.
However, while there aren’t any studies conducted that it does exist, there aren’t any studies that prove that it doesn’t exist either.
Kim De’Atta isn’t the only one who suffered from such a condition either. There’s Rachel Hinks, who claims to experience violent shakes, burning rashes, and extreme headaches when exposed to electromagnetic waves.

And there’s the more tragic case of Jenna Fry, a 15 year old girl who committed suicide after experiencing the symptoms.
There are also a few others who reported violent shaking, severe head pains, disorientation, sleep disturbance, and burning sensations.

And the fact that one of Kim De’Atta’s doctors believed that her condition indeed had to do something with electromagnetic waves shows that there are some doctors who believe it’s a real condition.
