The world is full of people with unique abilities that we often put into the category of miracles. And social media is one place where we get to see a lot of pictures and videos of people who claim they have super powers or some other kind of weird but special talents. While some cry blood, others can eat glass and knives. But most of the times these so called abilities are a result of some medical problem which we clearly are unaware of. Here’s a look at some of the bizarre medical conditions that you never knew existed:
Water Allergy (Aquagenic urticaria)
While the cause of this allergy is still not clearly known, people who suffer from this one of a kind condition develop intense itching and rashes when they come in contact with water. In fact, a single tear can also worsen the pain.
Persistent Genital Arousal Syndrome
People who suffer from the genital arousal syndrome can experience up to 100 orgasms a day which results in uncontrollable and uncomfortable sensations in and around the genital tissues. FYI, it has nothing to do with sexual desires.
Walking Corpse Syndrome (Cotard’s Delusion)
No, we are not talking about Zombies! The walking corpse syndrome is a mental condition in which the sufferer either believes that he/she is missing a body part or is actually dead. In fact, in medical terms, it is defined as a psychiatric syndrome of varied severity
Vampire Syndrome (Xeroderma Pigmentosum)
While you always get fascinated by Vampires and how they can’t go in sunlight, you will be shocked to know that approx one in one million people suffer from Xeroderma Pigmentosum. People who suffer from this syndrome are extremely sensitive to UV rays and a little sun exposure can cause major sunburns. Also, if not taken proper care, it can easily develop skin cancer.
Alien Hand Syndrome
Would you believe if we say that people who suffer from this syndrome do not have control on one of their hands! Yes, you read that right. The alien hand syndrome is a rare side effect of brain injuries, in which the hand behaves as if it has a brain of its own and it looks creepy.
Foreign Accent Syndrome
Well, this one is also a side effect of a stroke or brain injury in which a person develops a particular speech pattern. It is a neurological condition with no clear cause.
Werewolf Syndrome (Hypertrichosis)
The werewolf syndrome is a kind of genetic mutation which results in abnormal hair growth all over a person’s body, including the face.
