10 Rare Diseases That Turn People Into Superheroes


Ten rare diseases that curse people with superpowers, and it’s not kryptonite Have you caught a cold? Oh, how unlucky? All these nasty symptoms again a runny nose non-stop coughing and also it hurts to eat But you know what quit nagging Your illness will pass in about a week, but imagine the life of those who suffer from chronic diseases People tend to associate an illness with something unpleasant and often dangerous And they have their reasons to think so, but there are some diseases Which unlike a common cold look like superpowers at least at first sight in this video You’ll get acquainted with some of them. These rare diseases Not only leave scientists confused, but also make their carrier similar to superheroes Counting down number 10 super memory This condition is called hyperthymesia a disruption of memory Which causes a person to remember all the events of their life down to every last detail There are just about 60 people in the world who have been diagnosed with such a unique disease The patient’s can describe any day of their lives in amazing detail recalling even the moments from their deep childhood What’s more such people can recite lengthy extracts from books? They’ve read many years ago retell a news broadcast of any day of any year you name it Do you think it’s a gift these people are lucky to enjoy? hmm think again Patients with hyperthymesia can’t alter their memories or sugarcoat some unpleasant moments they would prefer to forget They literally forget nothing BBC once told the story of Rebecca sharukh an Australian writer who remembered how she was wrapped in a pink blanket at the tender age of 7 No, not years. Not even months seven days old her memory is truly unique She recites long extracts from Harry Potter without mixing up a single However the young woman doesn’t consider her hyperthymesia A superpower she constantly suffers from headaches and insomnia and tires very fast Number 9 in sensibility to pain Inborn analgesia, that’s a scientific name of the condition when a person doesn’t feel pain like At all there is a surprising fact to think about Despite the rareness of this disease as many as 40 cases of it have been registered in one of the villages in Sweden How can we explain such a phenomenon? Hmm, maybe it’s the meatballs What’s your opinion share in the comments at first sight you may think that this could be a feature of real x-men? The syndrome doesn’t influence mental abilities or appearance a person doesn’t feel any pain Maximum other people’s touches in real life this condition is dangerous usually our body informs us about some problems it has sending us signals in the form of pay a patient with analgesia might miss the symptoms of the disease They just won’t hear the cries for help of their body this illness is especially dangerous for little children they can hurt themselves while playing or Accidentally cause damage to the cornea bite the tip of their tongue off or fail to notice that their bone is broken Do you still think it’s cool? Number eight abilities to literally do anything Savant syndrome is a rare condition, which might be typical for people with developmental disorders such as autism or Asperger’s syndrome patients with such condition are extremely talented in music drawing and painting calculations cartography and constructing 3d models savants can instantly provide you with the result of multiplications of three-digit numbers or to say what day of the week will be the 5th of May 30 17 as An example Stephen Wiltshire a famous British architectural artist with the syndrome of savant Managed to draw a precise map of London After just one flight over the city Many people call savants geniuses, and they are partially right People with this syndrome have real talents in some fields But despite such patches of genius patients display inadequacy to the extent of the mental deficiency Do you remember Forrest Gump from the novel of Winston groom? Yeah me either. I just saw the movie Well that is a well-known example of a savant number 7 in sensitivity to cold Besides people who don’t react to pain there are those who are indifferent to cold a Vivid example is wim HOF a man from the Netherlands who brought doctors to their wit’s end The thing is wim is able to stand very low temperatures He managed to spend 120 minutes in a pipe with freezing water and ice Has climbed to the top of Mount Blanc wearing shorts and his pen. No not really and Even swims under the ice of frozen lakes and rivers Specialists considered this man to be a unique phenomenon though wim HOF himself believes that his Insensitivity to cold is the result of the persistent training Whatever it is. Just imagine how much money you could save on winter clothes if you had such an ability Number 6 complete absence of fear Herb OTT wife disease is a rare genetic disorder that leads to the complete lack of fear only 300 cases are known and a quarter of them have been registered in South Africa The most famous patient got the name the woman who knows no fear it is an American woman SM These initials have been given to her to maintain anonymity The researchers use numerous ways to frighten her she was given poisonous spiders and snakes to hold The scientists meet her watch horror films The woman was locked in a haunted house. However all their efforts were in vain What is more SM told them about terrible events from her life? which still didn’t manage to scare her a knife attack in the park at night a case of domestic violence she barely survived the Leader of the research team was surprised to find the woman still alive despite the fact that she can’t assess danger Well, that sounds scary doesn’t it? Number 5 the vampire disorder This disease has a difficult scientific name, but I will try hippo hydronic Ectodermal dysplasia, thank you very much But it’s more widely spread name describes it perfectly people suffering from this condition frequently have eerily pointed teeth Therefore looking similar to the legendary blood feeding creatures from horror films people with more prominent symptoms of this illness are Extremely thin and pale their eyes are outlined with dark circles Their teeth are typically pointed hair is absent and they probably don’t like steaks And I’m not talking about the beef kind All kidding aside the biggest problem for such patients is not being mistaken for a vampire the situation is much dire They always have to check their temperature and stay away from the sunlight. Also. It is vitally important to avoid hot weather Why so? People with this disorder don’t have sweat glands as you know these glands serve as a thermo regulating mechanism of our body Imagine what can happen if it is broken by the way, this is the most typical syndrome of the disorder Sounds dramatic but for example after Michael Berryman who suffers from the disease Made a career playing horror movie characters anyway Now you know where the stories about vampires root from right? Number four octopus people Polly Millia is a strange disorder people suffering from it are born with an unusual number of limbs in Some cases these limbs are pretty useful in others. They are non Functioning guess you wouldn’t be overly excited about an extra leg or arm But what would you say about a bigger number of extra limbs? for example the case in Pakistan was particularly shocking a baby was born with as many as six legs a Parasitic twin was to blame In fact the disease can affect any extremities legs arms fingers stand in some cases even penis surely surgeries removing extra body parts exist But surprisingly some individuals refuse to be operating they think these body parts Fingers in particular are useful and feel reluctant to bid goodbye to them Number three stone man syndrome The syndrome is genetic. What’s more it progresses through life People with such a disease have the soft tissues of their bodies turning to bone The mutation of the ACV are one gene responsible for the development of different tissues of the human body leads to terrible consequences muscles turn to bone and joints fuse together if Doctors attempt to remove the bone surgically the body starts to produce more bone tissue in that area Luckily only one in two million people suffers from this condition because currently there is no existing treatment Number two werewolf syndrome Do you regularly feel irritated getting rid of unwelcome hair growing on certain parts of your body Relax and take a deep breath it can’t be as bad as the problem of those who suffer from hypertrichosis The hair growth of such people is abnormal all their bodies are covered with thick hair It grows long and lush even on their faces The reason for this condition, which has gained the nickname werewolf syndrome is most likely to be the genetic mutation However there have been some cases where this disease has been provoked by anti balding treatment So be cautious with your wishes Surely usual methods of hair removal shaving waxing or laser are perfectly effective But even the best of them only give short lasting results and number one foreign accent syndrome But any of you have tried to speak with a foreign accent at least once in your life have you been successful and There are people who don’t even need to try hard their countrymen will believe that their tourists visiting the country on vacation However, it is no fun for patients themselves they speak with a foreign accent uncontrollably What is even more surprising? People who have acquired French accent may have never visited France before From time to time such patients use several accents and sometimes even simultaneously The most common reason for this condition is a head injury or a stroke well that explains a few things the person with this condition Changes the way they place their tongue during speaking the most effective treatment in this case is speech therapy So what disease have you found the most shocking have you ever met anybody with the conditions described in this video Write to us in the comments Don’t forget to hit the like button and click subscribe to join us on the bright side

    These aren’t diseases
    Nor are they illnesses
    They are mental disorders
    Someone’s not “sick” with ‘not being able to feel pain.’

    Idek why I’m getting angry about this

    I think one of my friends has the vampire disease…whaaaatt? she doesnt like florescent light that much, she's a bit okay with sun but not if its hot (but we find it quite normal if its hot), she looks pale at most times and most of all, she has teeth which are very similar to a vampires. When she bites someone hard, the person bleeds like he has been bit by an actual vampire. Its her favourite way of protecting her self from threats..we find that really cool. Man, i didnt know i was sitting to a descendant of a vampire in class for so long till now.
    I am surprised. Shocked.
