The Onset of Havana Syndrome Symptoms

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.

How the Symptoms of “Havana Syndrome” Begin - One embassy employee with Havana Syndrome remembers being in her kitchen at her Cuban residence when she heard a piercing noise, then her head immediately began pounding. She was unable to sleep because of her headache, then the next morning her son asked her to read the ingredients listed on the back of the cereal box. The woman found herself struggling to read the words in front of her, even when she moved the box back and forth, attempting to focus. The weeks ahead found her headache became chronic, along with dizziness and balance issues.

Even when she was standing still, she felt as though she was moving, she frequently walked into doors, and she was sleeping only one to two hours per night. Co-workers questioned the woman about her sudden bouts of forgetfulness, as well as her overall health. The woman was hesitant to mention her condition to superiors; there was no way she could know that others were experiencing similar symptoms.

In fact, between December 30, 2016, and February 9, 2017, three CIA officers working in Cuba reported “troubling” health symptoms related to an instance of hearing a piercing noise or feeling an intense pressure in their heads, then immediately being stricken by a headache. Reinforcements for the CIA members were sent to Havana; those reinforcements also found themselves experiencing the same symptoms.

All the CIA agents mentioned they were “bombarded by waves of pressure in their heads,” and some noted the noise they heard was similar to that of a huge number of cicadas, and that the noise seemed to follow them from room to room. Opening an outside door caused the “cicada” noise to stop. Some of the CIA officers likened their symptoms to feeling as though they were standing in an invisible beam of energy.  

In 2017, the FBI arrived in Havana after being granted visas by the Cuban government. The group of FBI agents inspected the hotel rooms and other areas where the attacks had taken place. They asked about the wi-fi routers hung in the hallways, as well as whether any other guests had reported similar symptoms. The desk clerk maintained no other guests mentioned noises, pressure, or subsequent symptoms. Since there was no physical evidence left behind, the agents asked the hotel to provide video footage—a request that has yet to be fulfilled. The agents then went to an embassy residence where a similar attack occurred.

The embassy official reported hearing strange sounds from a neighboring house before the attack occurred, but the only source of noise the agents could locate was a water pump. Despite this, doctors at the University of Pennsylvania confirmed the injuries of the Americans in Havana. All those involved appeared to suffer from a new type of brain network disorder, similar to the damage seen among those with traumatic brain injuries. Again, many medical experts believe they are dealing with a sonic weapon, while others are looking into certain forms of energy that are medically used to remove nerve fibers.
