The "What the hell is wrong with you" Thread

    This is a thread to discuss the little things that are wrong with you, be it physical or mental. This isn't a thread to discuss serious physical or medical conditions. This thread is meant to be light-hearted and fun.

    I'll start!

    When I was 9 months old I had to have tubes put into my ears because I was born with an ear infection. At the time, I was the youngest child in my state to have the procedure done (I am currently shopping the movie rights). Anyways, I had tubes put into my ears 4 times as a child, as I would continuously grow out of them. Now doctors know that it is not safe to perform that procedure so many times as a child. Because of this my ear canals and ear drums are a warzone, they are scarred like crazy. The constantly itch and ring.

    I also have a small "growth" on my lower back, resembling a malignant mass, but it isn't cancerous, just a weird skin abnormality. I could get it removed if I want, but I am married so who gives a shit right?

    I am also prone to jock itch, which is kind of a pain in the ass.

    The whole alignment of my legs is messed up. Basically my outer thigh muscles are way stronger than my inner thigh muscles and everything is turned in. It puts a lot of strain on my hips and is a huge pain in the ass.
    My shoulder blades pop out sometimes and it makes me look very creepy.
    I'm also double jointed in my arms and legs.

    I fell out of the school bus in 4th grade and broke my ankle. I blame J.K. Rowling because I had like 4 Harry Potter books in my backpack and the string to it got stuck on the bus handlebars. I tried to pull it and it wouldn't budge, until it eventually did. The weight of the books helped propel me out of the bus.

    Nah, it's fine! It didn't hurt that bad and It was the week before spring break, so that meant 2 weeks off (because somehow they let me stay home a week).

    In my senior year of high school, I was playing Four Square on the blacktop with friends and just kinda planted my leg wrong and dislocated my knee. It popped back into place a couple seconds later somehow and the doctor told me that the reason I didn't tear my ACL is because my tendons and ligaments and so loose because of how unathletic I am.

    In high school my right eye started to float. It wasn't a huge deal then because It really only happened if I forced it to (other teenagers had a vested interest in seeing it because teenagers I guess). Then one day we had the vision test and, although I could see perfectly fine, the test caused my eye to float and I was told I needed to go see an eye doctor. My mom paid good money to take me to see a specialist (money she barely had) and they did all sorts of weird tests. The doctor seemed half interested as he told us there was nothing wrong with me. Now, many years later, I have discovered how terribly wrong he was. It gets worse every day. I can still control it but it also happens all on its own now. It happens when I'm driving, which really freaks me out (often happens when I have to turn my head to check over my shoulder). It happens when I simply turn my head and I have to kind of shake it to force my double vision back into place. It happens when I get tired or hungry. It happens when I'm reading for too long, which makes my eyes hurt and often forces me to close one eye while I'm reading (I'm doing it right now actually). I know that's really bad for me and it gives me bad migraines if I do it for too long. I finally have okay health insurance so I'm going to go to the eye doctor again. It just pisses me off because reading up on it informs me that it's actually a very common cause of medical malpractice amongst young people. They tell us we're fine and then years later the damage has been done. It can usually be resolved if you take care of it at an early age.

    Sorry, but what does it mean for your eye to "float"?

    If you don't mind me asking, do you wear aids? Because that is in my near future I fear.

    Basically it rolls upward of its own volition. One eye looks straight ahead while the other is looking up. There are a surprising amount of actors who have this if you look hard enough for it.

    I sometimes faint when I get blood taken, or when I get nervous/stressed, and other times, or I get blurry/black and spotty vision. Once I fainted when I watched my best friend get her belly button pierced, and then three years later when I went to a nuclear reactor in Cambridge MA. I've gotten a lot of blood work and tests like MRIs done and nothing is apparently nothing is wrong with me.

    I've only fainted once and that is when I was watching the Emmy awards in like 2006. I remember someone getting an award and then I woke up 2 hours later next to my fireplace mantle. The back of my head hurt, so I obviously hit it.

    This happens to me too! Started when I was a senior in high school. Fainted the first time during drama practice and then it just kept happening. I cut my hand in a meat slicer at work a few years later and I passed out immediately at the sight of the blood. They have also put me through the MRI machines and made me drink that nasty liquid and they cannot figure out what it is. For a while they thought maybe it was stress induced but they're not sure.

    that's exactly what they said for me too! apparently there's a thing that when your body gets too stressed out, it narrows blood vessels reducing flow to the brain, and possibly causing fainting. but it's never been something that worried any physician I saw, so I suppose it's a common thing, if that's what it is.
