20 Of The Weirdest And Rarest Diseases Known To Mankind
There are an unfortunate number of people currently living around the world who are experiencing some of the rarest, weirdest diseases known to man. Some of these are probably unheard of by many of you, but they do exist, and they are affecting the daily lives of those who are unlucky enough to have come down with the symptoms. There are treatments in some cases, but not all are so lucky. In fact, the majority have no known treatment and they still baffle doctors everywhere.
Exploding Head Syndrome
Exploding Head Syndrome sounds like something out of a bad horror movie, but it’s actually a serious disease affecting thousands around the world. Symptoms of the disease are what sounds like a bomb exploding, a gun firing off, a clash of cymbals, or another form of loud noise within one’s head while trying to sleep. There are no symptoms of pain, swelling or any other physical aspect, however. Individuals over 50 tend to be the most common recipients, but people as young as 10 have reported occurrences, too.
Alice in Wonderland Syndrome
Alice in Wonderland Syndrome sounds like something that was completely made up, but it isn’t, though it is named after the novel by Lewis Carroll. Symptoms include hallucinations, disorientation, dysmetropsia, or size distortion. Symptoms are common within childhood, but most grow out of it within their teens. Symptoms are not harmful and will disappear in time.
