Rachel Hinks, a 44-year-old resident of Chichester, was forced to move to a garden shed because her severe electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHMS) is making her extremely unwell.
After spending months ‘off the grid’, Rachel has just returned to her house in Chichester.
She said: “I’ve been back in Chichester two weeks and it’s shocked me how quickly I’ve gone downhill.
“I’ve been shaking, fatigued, had headaches and diarrhoea twice a day.
“While I was in Wales in a tent or sleeping in my car all my symptoms completely stopped.
“But now I’m near masts again I’m feeling so ill, I vomited twice this morning and it’s causing a lot of acute symptoms, the worst being it’s now affecting my heart and sending me into heart arrhythmia.”
Rachel is now trying to raise money so she can find a permanent home saying her condition has become desperate.
“I’m now in a life-threatening crisis. With signals going up and up and up it’s making me severely ill,” she said.
“We haven’t been living with these sort of levels for very long to know what they are doing to us, I feel like we’re a living experiment, we’re human guinea pigs.”
