Thank you to everyone for your overwhelming support of this litigation. Right now, we can ONLY accept cases from attacks that occurred in Cuba, Iran, Syria, or North Korea. We are still continuing our investigation into these attacks.
The National Academies of Sciences published a report that stated most of those with Havana Syndrome heard a loud noise, then felt an intense pressure or vibration in their head. Severe head or ear pain, along with dizziness, was common after the noise and pressure/vibration. Many of the symptoms were remarkably similar to those experienced by people with concussions. Many of the people noted their symptoms would lessen or stop when they went into another room, then return in full force when they came back to the initial spot where they first experienced the symptoms.
How Does “Havana Syndrome” Cause Harm? While some people with Havana Syndrome have said their symptoms eventually went away, others still experience chronic headaches, chronic insomnia, and even some level of brain damage and neurological symptoms that won’t go away. Omid Mehdizadeh, a laryngologist and otolaryngologist at Providence Saint John’s Health Center Santa Monica, CA notes that while headaches and dizziness are fairly typical symptoms in those with brain-central conditions, conditions of the inner ear, or strokes, the brain damage is not.
