10 Diseases You’ve Probably Never Heard Of

Diseases are something we hear about too often. Alzheimer’s, Diabetes, Cancer, and Pneumonia are constantly making headlines. And while those illnesses are horrible in their own right, there are a few diseases you’ve most likely never heard of, that would make Pneumonia look like a walk in the park. Here are 10 incredibly rare, and weird, diseases that’ll make you feel incredibly thankful for your good health:

Encephalitis Lethargica

This disease attacks the brain and leaves suffers absolutely motionless. Encephalitis Lethargica, also known as the “sleeping sickness” is typically accompanied by a headache, fever, sore throat, and sometimes strong hallucinations; as well as the inability to move or talk. There was an epidemic of this disease in the early 1900s. About five million people were affected. A third of them died and many others were left in a coma-like state. No epidemic has happened since but how scary would it be if it did?
