Individual Accounts Havana Syndrome

Thank you to everyone for your overwhelming support of this litigation. Right now, we can ONLY accept cases from attacks that occurred in Cuba. We are still continuing our investigation into these attacks.

One Individual’s Experience with “Havana Syndrome” - According to Business Insider, Mark Polymeropoulos, an American CIA agent, has had severe, chronic headaches since he traveled to Moscow in December 2017. Today, he goes to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for regular acupuncture treatments, meant to help alleviate his constant headache pain. While on his trip, he woke one night in his hotel room with severe ringing in his ears, and vertigo so severe the entire room seemed to be spinning. By the time he returned home, Mark’s vertigo had improved, but his headaches were getting steadily worse—and never seemed to take a break. Mark was also having a hard time remembering things. He was unable to drive, lost his long-distance vision, and suffered from constant brain fog.  

Mark had heard about the Cuban diplomats with similar symptoms, so he attempted to seek care through the CIA. Mark Lenzi, an engineering officer at the United States Consulate in Guangzhou, China suffered similar symptoms to those of Polymeropoulos—intense headaches and bouts of forgetfulness—after a similar incident. Lenzi said his entire family was affected; he and his wife both found themselves forgetting the names of tools, phone numbers, and names, and their children began having nosebleeds with no apparent cause. Once Lenzi and his family returned to the US, it was determined he had a concussion even though he never suffered a blow to the head.  

Mark Polymeropoulos has visited as many as fifteen specialists over the past three years—neurologists, sleep doctors, migraine specialists, infectious disease experts, allergists, and ophthalmologists. He says the fact that he has no visible wounds makes Havana Syndrome much more difficult to live with. He claims that some people think he is “faking” his symptoms, therefore it would have been much easier if he had been shot and had an obvious cause of his symptoms. When Polymeropoulos began going to Walter Reed, he spent a month at the facility—ten hours a day, five days a week. Doctors diagnosed him as having a traumatic brain injury. While Polymeropoulos retired from the CIA early because of his extreme headaches, he says Walter Reed has given him “tools and hope.”
