This thread is for all those diseases and stuff like that wee see in other threads...I find them really interesting so i thought I'd make a thread about it.

Ill start off with Elephantiasis.

Often caused by mosquitoes carrying the disease.

Why does 'syndromes' get an apostrophe but not 'diseases'?

Link to that corpse one plix?

I saw a programme about harlequin ichthyosis the other week, I felt so bad for those kids.

Perceiving things as much smaller than they really are:
Todd's syndrome/Alice in Wonderland syndrome

"Religious experiences":
Jerusalem syndrome

holoproscencephaly (sp?) is rather messed up.

I have 'Gilbert's syndrome', which I've inherited off my dad.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gilberts_syndrome

Officially, it's harmless, and only causes elevated bilirubin in the liver, but patients have also reported:

* feeling tired all the time (fatigue)
* loss of appetite
* nausea or dizziness
* abdominal pain
* irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
* difficulty maintaining concentration
* very dark urine.

I have all of these things, but because it isn't proved that they are connected, the problems I have aren't diagnosed as caused by GS.

All of the listed things, plus the level of bilirubin in the liver all escalate when the person (or in my case, me), doesn't eat.

Mick Mars has that, as well as a guitar player that used to be in my band. it really sucks, if left untreated basically your bones and muscles fuse together/harden and you become a statue.

"Elephantiasis is a disease that is characterized by the thickening of the skin and underlying tissues, especially in the legs and genitals. It causes certain parts to swell to the size of a beachball in some cases."

FFI (Fatal Familial Insomnia) is by far the scariest disease I've ever heard of, it's a prion disease that prevents you from sleeping, you slowly go insane over the 3 or so months it takes for you to die, constantly exhausted and going more crazy by the day.

If I'm ever diagnosed with it I will be jumping off a high building head first.
