Dubliner Klaudia Rachwal was just 23-years-old when she suffered Locked-In Syndrome as a result of a stroke in 2015.

For five months she could hear and see everything around her, but was only able to move her eyes.

Recalling the experience, she said: “It was really scary. I was trying to move, but I just couldn’t. My body just wouldn’t do anything.

“I knew what I wanted to say but my body wouldn’t allow me to make the movement or to make a sound.

“I woke up and I was 100% with it. I could remember everything but I couldn’t move anything."

With the help of her family, they worked out a way to communicate.

The trainee clinical data manager at Beaumont Hospital told The Sun: “Luckily, my family came in and told me to look at the door if I could hear them, so we were able to work out a way to communicate quite quickly.

“They’d point at letters in the alphabet and I would blink when I wanted them to stop, so we could spell out words.

“They were amazing. They helped me with everything I needed and encouraged me the whole way.”

After months of hard work the former UCD student's ability to talk, walk and stand with a frame returned.

She is now hoping to raise awareness of the condition.
