What Interesting Medical Conditions do You Have?

Was an interesting topic on another forum, so I decided to give it a shot on here.

I have a fluid imbalance in my brain which doesn't really do anything except cause severe chronic headaches about once a year (at least that's what the docs think). I also have some knee condition that I've been too lazy to get checked out, but I'm pretty sure I'll be wheelchair-bound if I don't. Whereas most people's legs are straight, mine are pretty much straight except that my knees kinda jerk out to the sides, but I'm not bow-legged or anything. Doesn't really cause any pain unless I climb stairs a lot (like all day).

Now for the freaky stuff...I'm double-jointed (think that's what it is anyway) in 6 of my 10 fingers (it'll probably give me arthritis or something eventually). I can pop both my thumbs out and literally slide my knuckles on my middle and ring fingers over. I also have something like 20/10 or 20/9 vision. When I went to the DMV to do the eye chart test, I could read the chart from across the room and the lady thought I memorized the charts and was showing off.

shitty vision, bad right knee, bad right shoulder, scars from appendectomy and knee surgery. I still work my knees and shoulders hard as fuck, I will most likely have arthritis.

I have problems with dyslexia when speaking English, I don't have the issue in Ukrainian though. Bad knee and shoulder. Scar on my right eyebrow from a hockey stick. I think I have something like insomnia or w/e; stay awake till like 4 am even if I go to bed at midnight and wake up early.

Back in H.S. I had fluid and a "marble" in my right breast that had to be removed. I also dislocated my shoulder 16 years ago, and it's given me nothing but trouble since then.

Interesting medical conditions...
[list type=decimal]
  • Cerebral Palsy from birth that affects my right side (arm and leg) and my balance

  • Vision issues - high index lenses & glaucoma (both eyes)

  • Hairline fracture of the femur bone in my right leg in '81

  • Upper portion of the tibia in my right leg demolished in '99, owing to an auto accident, also lost part of my right knee cartilage to the surgery
  • [/list]
    I think that's more than enough yes?
