Bizarre Medical Cases Faced by Doctors
Despite the countless scientific breakthroughs we’ve made through the years, we humans still have a lot to learn about our universe and in or bodies. This is especially true in regards to the latter; to this day, doctors still encounter various weird medical cases that would leave normal people like us either squirming or wowing. Read on if you want to know some of these cases.
Fishbone in Eyeball
Getting a fishbone stuck in your eye is one definite way to ruin your day at the beach. And that’s exactly what happened to a 52-year-old tourist visiting the Red Sea in 2015. The guy was swimming in the sea when he collided with a school of fish, developing a swollen and droopy eyelid not long after. During the subsequent corrective surgery, the doctor also removed “two tubular structures” from the man’s eye, which turned out to be jawbones of a halfbeak fish. Apparently, the fishbones were the ones causing all the trouble!
Soy Sauce Overdose
Some time ago, a 19-year-old man from Virginia was hospitalized after drinking half a quart of soy sauce on a dare. He was in a coma for three days. Apparently, the amount of soy sauce he dunked was too much for his brain to handle; the sauce’s sodium levels cased his brain to be dehydrated, causing bleeding among other things. Doctors has to pump in around 5.7 liters of sugar water just to normalize his body’s sodium levels. And fortunately, he managed to recover without any long-term neurological effects.
Too much of a good thing can be bad for you, and that’s what a young man from Germany learned the hard way. Immensely enjoying his Sudoku puzzles, he suddenly began having seizures. Apparently, the man was an avid Sudoku fan all his life, even solving puzzles when he was trapped in an avalanche during a ski trip. Though he was eventually rescued, he was later diagnosed with hypoxia, a condition that causes his body to have muscle twitches. And whenever he’s playing Sudoku afterwards, the seizures would start.
Hepatitis from Tea
Green tea is supposed to be good for the health. Unfortunately, that’s not the case for a 16-year-old girl from the UK, who started showing signs of hepatitis after drinking around three cups of green tea a day for three months. The girl ordered the tea online, and most of the ingredients are Chinese. And although the doctors from her clinic didn’t analyze the tea further, they advised the girl to stop consuming it, and her condition improved afterward.
The examples above are just a few of the most bizarre medical cases doctors face today. And whether it occurs in the hospital or in a simple medical startup, these situations make a very interesting albeit weird medical studies.
