Bad vibrations – persuading the courts to recognise new illnesses

James is a real case whose identity has been changed.

Please meet James. He first started feeling unwell in 1988 when a transmitting mast five metres from his home – which previously had only an aerial at the top as a relay station – had additional capacity added to it that year.

He started to have headaches and migraines which abated within 30 minutes of leaving the house and vicinity of the mast. When several mobile systems were added to the mast, headaches and brain fog were accompanied by burning across his shoulders and back, and a pricking tingling sensation in his body ‘like being electrocuted’.

His symptoms became worse, and his wife also suffered, when Tetra transmitters were added to the mast: stabbing pains in the shoulders, vertigo, blurred vision, pressure band around the head, headaches, cramping of hands, confusion and lack of concentration, disorientation, dizziness, dry cough, hot spots on the spine, to name just a few from a long list.
