eraser8: I've admitted in earlier threads that I often suffer minor injuries that go unnoticed for several hours. I feel absolutely no pain from them until I step into the shower or wash my hands. And, even when I notice them, I have no idea what caused the injury.

I think I may be coming down with leprosy.

ytterbium: I have a huge fear of brain aneurysms. My cousin died suddenly from one a few years ago, now with every twinge of a headache I think I'm about to die.

/therapy, I need it


I had a brain aneurysm just over 4 years ago and, still, even the slightest headache makes me panic

All of them....and none of them,

I have my own form of autoimmune interstitial lung disease. I just got called within the past hour to stop the chemo drugs we were treating it for and report in for new bloodwork on Monday, and into the hospital if my liver isn't better by then.

Yay.
The best part about it is that I will sometimes feel fine. My O2 saturation will be 70, but I feel fine. Sure, I could have a stroke and die, but I just feel winded.

Every treatment we try for me is an experiment, and unlike what you've seen on House, doctors really don't care to try to find names or boxes for disorders, so even the rare disease guy consulting is content to say it's in a category of diseases.

Of course, disability doesn't recognize disorders without names.

I found out that somebody's been trying to kill me by piping nitrogen into my building. The air in my office smelled funny, so I took it in and found that somehow (I still don't know how), they've been pumping nitrogen into my office area. The sampled air was over 75% nitrogen and had pushed out all but about 20% of the oxygen in my office.

I have no idea what damage has already been done to my lungs.

I've never had one, and don't know anyone who has, but I'm still terrified when I get a headache.

Also, freckles. They will eventually all turn into skin cancer. I'm sure of it.

Workplace phobia

According to the general definition of specific phobias in DSM-IV or ICD-10, workplace phobia can be stated when an actual or imagined confrontation with the workplace or certain stimuli at the workplace (e.g. persons, objects, situations, events) causes a prominent anxiety reaction in a person. Secondly, avoidance behaviour towards the workplace or associated stimuli has developed. In some cases Workplace phobia may be a kind of social phobia or social anxiety or extreme shyness.[1]

Gamophobia

Gamophobia (prounced 'ga-me-PHO-bia', from the Greek 'gamo' meaning 'marriage') is the fear of getting married or being in a relationship; this individual fears commitment. The opposite of 'gamophobia' is 'anuptophobia'-it is the fear of being or staying single.

I had a period of all the tests,specialists, etc and kept getting worse. You might try a different approach. Hope it works, I know it's frustrating.
Happy to say I am on the mend.

This is what "I am Right" has -

Microorchidism is the medical term used to describe a genetic disorder found in males where a subject has abnormally small testes. The condition is associated with (and often secondary to) a number of other genetic disorders, including Klinefelter's Syndrome and Prader-Willi syndrome, as well as other multiple malformation disorders. The degree of abnormality (or otherwise) of the testes can be determined by the use of an orchidometer. In addition, Microorchidism may also occur as a result of shrinkage or atrophy of the testis due to infections like mumps. [1]

By the time you read this, i will have passed. the killer what took me is Entitilitis. no one knows what Entitilitis does, but Entitilitis kills. if you could sponser an Entitilitis volunteer for national "talk backwards to raise awareness about entitilitis" day, that'd be great. also, next time you're in a crowd, ya'll wear condoms on both your ears. i think it's kinda funny.

Scabies

Scabies (from Latin: scabere, "to scratch"),[1] known colloquially as the seven-year itch,[2] is a contagious skin infection that occurs among humans and other animals. It has been classified by the WHO as a water-related disease[3]. It is caused by a tiny and usually not directly visible parasite, the mite Sarcoptes scabiei, which burrows under the host's skin, causing intense allergic itching. The infection in animals (caused by different but related mite species) is called sarcoptic mange.

If you want a nice, rare, farked up disease to call your own, try looking up Morgellons Disease.

No_Good_Name: Brain tumor. For sure. I have a migraine condition but at times I am sure it is a brain tumor. I have auras, personality change, violent outbursts. So, my tumor is killing me.


Whatever you do, don't get a CT scan or MRI...if it turns out your brain is normal, you won't be able to rely on the tumor excuse any more.

Trust me; I know.

I got the black lung, pop. *cough*
 
2012-05-11 04:52:49 PM  
I'm worried that the stupid from the idiots I deal with in email is contagious. So am I being infected with a computer virus?

On a serious note, the first two weeks in April I was hospitalized with a pleural effusion. I had almost a 103 fever. Apparently I had pneumonia, and it got so bad it burst though my lung and started with a nice, putrid, pus effusion, surgeon pulled half a gallon of festering crap out of me, and I was on 5 different antibiotics, including Vancomycin.

I went in because I thought it was just a very painful back spasm and possible muscle injury that was causing rhabdomyolysis (because I had very low urine production and it was coffee-colored), I had no idea I was sick at all.

Oh, and I also have cluster headaches.
