Seventy-year-old Rosi Gladwell believes that the electromagnetic radiation from WiFi leaves her short of breath and feeling weak - she also says it gives her pins and needles in her face.
She's spent thousands of pounds 'protecting' herself from radiation, including forking out £400 ($490) for a specially made sleeping bag woven with silver and copper to form protective sheet which she wraps around herself. She's also got a £200 ($245) hand-held radiation device.
But now the self-diagnosed sufferer has said she's very worried about the 5G rollout and the impact it will have on her - and even fears that it might kill her.
Rosi, from Totnes in Devon, said: "I'm actually quite frightened about the future.
"At the moment, I've managed to make myself safe by being fortunate enough to live in a house in the countryside where there are no measured electromagnetic frequencies.
"But if they introduce 5G then I don't know what the future will bring. It's a really scary issue."
Rosi spends most of her time in her family holiday home in the Spanish mountains to avoid WiFi altogether. She travels to Spain via a 30-hour ferry journey and wraps herself up in her sleeping bag and protective sheet throughout.
Rosi diagnosed herself as being EMF-sensitivity six years, after noticing that she began to feel better when she turned off the WiFi and cordless phones in her home.
"Back then people would think of you as being weird if you said you suffered from EMF sensitivity," she said. "But I don't think that's the case now.
"There's no way I would go into a big town anymore because the signals are getting stronger.
"If I go to a cafe I try to sit outside and if we go out to dinner I take my meter with me and then I can decide which seats have the least radiation and sit there, because it varies so much in a room.
"If I am exposed for too long, I have to come home and have two days with everything turned off and not watch TV."
Rosi is member of the Electromagnetic Field Awareness Totnes, where around a dozen people meet up to watch documentaries about the potential effects of radiation - however, Rosi thinks the actual number of sufferers could be much higher.
"We have about 12 members who come to meetings," Rosi explained. "But there may be many more EMF-sensitive people in Totnes who feel so weak they can't come.
"Scientists say four percent of people worldwide are suffering from EMF sensitivity and that's probably an underestimation.
"A lot of people now aren't feeling very well, everyone feels exhausted and stressed out, and some of it is, in my view, down to the extent of radiation."
