In one of the episodes of Netflix’s “Receiver,” Davante Adams revealed that he has a disorder – Claustrophobia. While taking a head massage from his therapist, Cecily Broadhead, Adams said, “I told you about the MRI situation. I’m claustrophobic.” His therapist tried to calm him saying, “You know, I have a couple clients that won’t even do one because of that same reason.”

To which, Adams replied, “I mean, I almost left. I thought about– When I went to the bathroom, I thought about just, like, escaping.” In the video, Broadhead further asked him if he did it [the MRI]. Adams responded that he did it but the last five minutes felt like 35 minutes to him, and he panicked the whole time.

Adams is not alone in this disorder, as according to the research, among the 341 million American population, about 12.5% of people have claustrophobia, which sums up to 42.75 million Americans.

Nonetheless, if claustrophobia and MRI gives him fear, there is one thing that gives him happiness.
