    Identify a brain disorder?

    Hello, So, in my elementary school, there was the son of one of the secretaries. He was 24, and would come to work with her frequently, so we all saw a lot of him. He was very friendly and kind, but he definitely had a brain/neuro/developmental disorder. I can not seem to figure out which one. Until recently, I had completely forgotten about him but now that he is back in my mind I am wondering if I can figure out any answers. These are his symptoms to the best of my memory (it was 15 years ago)....

    Mal de De'barquement

    I have a rare disorder called Mal de De'barquement. It is not Vertigo & there is no dizziness. You just feel like you are on a boat all the time. It involves swaying, bobbing and a general feeling of not being able to balance your body. the only time you feel normal is when you are sleeping or driving. It affects your vision and especially your energy level. For me, the worse part (besides the bobbing) is how completely exhausted I get to the point where I have to stop what I am doing, lie....

    Risk of leprosy from mail?

    I am a mild collector of gemstones. I recently ordered some opals from India and didn't notice until a few days after I'd purchased them that in the pictures they used to display these particular gems the man holding them had a strange mark on his finger. The mark was a small white looking bump, almost like a pimple though it did not appear red in any way and was definitely raised and not flat. Upon requesting to cancel my order they informed me they had already shipped it so I am planning....

    sudden pulsing headache while working out chest flys

    Last night I was going hard at the gym doing some chest flys, when all of a sudden in the middle of the set, I got a terrible pulsing headache. It subsided within a minute of so and then just turned into a dull headache. It was nothing debilitating I was able to keep working out with less weight of course and It sounds like something called an exercise headache. It is not like 20 hours since that happened, I still have a very minor just dull headache and what seems to be a fever but I also have bad....

    Final stages

    My Mom was diagnosed with Parkinson's about 5 years ago. Yesterday we were told she is in final stages. Her Doctor explained it to me, but I still can't accept it. I still feel that something more can be done. She has been living with my Brother for about a month. She was in a assisted living until she could no longer be there. I'm so afraid they are getting ready to place her in nursing home. He and his wife have power of attorney. It will kill me if that happens! I don't know what....

They have prescribed Levipil tablets for this. Are these seizures are going to keep happening? help!

    Right Sided Weakness

    I am a 34 years old male. I am having an illness that no one seems to understand and therefore still not diagnosed. It started 10-12 years back when I felt a slight unbalance in standing while I was waiting for a bus. Initially I ignored it but since then it increased manifold and turns out to be affecting the whole right side of my body starting from the neck to foot. The right side of my body is weaker as compared to left side and appears to be not developing as it should be. Due to this I feel....
