What’s the weirdest disease you have ever heard of?
Diseases always tend to harm human body in some way or another and affect the life schedule badly. Sometimes even a tiny disease can be dangerous but have you ever thought of a disease caused by your own immunes? Isn’t it weird and spooky?
The autoimmune is one such disease in which the immune system starts to generate antibodies which attack blood cells and tissues badly instead of fighting with them. Immune deficiency diseases decrease the body's ability to fight foreign invaders. It causes vulnerability due to high levels of infections. In this disease, the blood cells of the body or micro-organisms like bacteria triggers the immune system and causes disorder in the body.
Is it dangerous?
One interesting fact is that even doctors do not know the exact cause of this disease. Generally, the immune system guards our body from foreign invaders. However, at times, it gets misbalanced and starts to release proteins called auto-antibodies that attack the healthy cells of the body directly. Also, the system fails to distinguish between healthy and harmful antigens cells which results in a trigger.
Some of the symptoms of this disease are:
- Achiness in muscles
- Rashes and redness in skin
- High and Low fever
- Concentrating issues
- Numbness in hand and feet
- Excessive hair loss
