6 Unbelievable and Rare Medical Conditions

Believe it or not there are people in the world who are suffering from medical conditions that some of us can only wish for. In general medical problems are not fun at all, especially when they require medical attention just to prevent an almost-constant state of orgasm.

1. Foreign Accent Syndrome (FAS)

Following a traumatic brain incident like a stroke, several patients have come to speaking with a noticeable foreign accent. Dubbed the Foreign Accent Syndrome (FAS) affected individuals have experienced damage to certain parts of their brain that control speech and the facial muscles that coordinate speech. These individuals don’t actually gain knowledge of a new language, but rather they’re forming their vowels and consonants differently and changing the way they use their tongue.

2. Hypertrichosis

Sometimes referred to as Werewolf Syndrome, Hypertrichosis is the overproduction of hair on the body. Affecting some people all over their body and others in only specific body areas, the disorder was probably at the route of carnival sideshows of latter years. Hypertrichosis has been known to be caused by an adverse reaction to medications or steroids in adults, but can also be present in babies that don’t shed the hair-like covering of a fetus as it grows.

3. Liopdystrophy

As a child Mr. Perry had a bit of a weight problem, but by age 12 this issue literally vanished overnight and now he is a man who cannot put on weight. With a case of Liopdystrophy, his body rapidly burns fat by producing an abnormally high level of insulin — six times that of the average human being. While Mr. Perry has tried to put on weight in the past, eating unlimited high-calorie meals and desserts have had no effect on his physique.

4. Aquagenic Utricaria

At the age of 19 an Australian girl began experiencing extreme rashes whenever she came in contact with water of any temperature. Suffering from the rare disorder Aquagenic Utricaria, Ashleigh Morris can’t take showers or go swimming without breaking into a painful body rash. She is one of only a few individuals in the world with documentable proof of this disorder.

5. Hyperthymestic Syndrome

Doctors describe it as “nonstop, uncontrollable and automatic” memory of her life’s and public events even dating as far back as 25 years. Like a human almanac, the woman named “AJ” can recall elaborate details and spot-on recounts of news events even what day of the week they occurred. She literally can’t forget anything. AJ’s disorder is so unique that doctors have named it for her: hyperthymestic syndrome.

6. Permanent Sexual Arousal Syndrome (PSAS)

A woman in the UK claims to have more than 200 orgasms a day, a condition doctors have diagnosed as Permanent Sexual Arousal Syndrome (PSAS). In one six-month period Sarah Carmen was said to have experienced 150 orgasms a day. Her doctors believe the cause is an increase in blood flow to the sex organs, possibly caused by the ingestion of her birth control pill.
