10 Strange and Unusual Unexplained Medical Conditions That Have No Answers or Treatment
There are some very unique and for many people unheard of medical conditions that affect a large number of individuals.
This very mysterious and highly controversial illness is one of the unexplained medical conditions. A skin disorder that causes the patient to feel like their skin is crawling, intense itching, sores and fibers that appear to ooze out of the skin.
Medical experts tend to diagnose sufferers with a delusional parasitosis... this means people have a strong belief they are harboring parasites and therefore exhibit symptoms themselves.

I have seen videos of a registered nurse suffering with Morgellons Disease, a well-educated, “normal” woman with a medical background yet she suffered a lot with long strings of filaments oozing from her body. Was she delusional? I don’t think so!
Singer Joni Mitchell said she suffers with it, here is what Time had to say..
“I have this weird, incurable disease that seems like it’s from outer space, but my health’s the best it’s been in a while,” Mitchell told the Los Angles Times in 2010. “Fibers in a variety of colors protrude out of my skin like mushrooms after a rainstorm: they cannot be forensically identified as animal, vegetable or mineral. Morgellons is a slow, unpredictable killer — a terrorist disease: it will blow up one of your organs, leaving you in bed for a year.”
Mitchell said at the time that she planned to get out of the music business and help raise awareness—and gain credibility—for the disease.
In 2012, the CDC published a study that tried to determine what is going on. It was part of a $600,000 project launched in 2008 in response to massive interest in the syndrome. The researchers studied skin biopsies and urine and blood samples to see if they could determine a common cause. They basically concluded that they didn’t buy it: “No common underlying medical condition or infectious source was identified, similar to more commonly recognized conditions such as delusional infestation.”
As the article above states, Joni Mitchell wants to bring Morgellons disease to the public attention. If you or anyone you know suffers with this unexplained medical condition, please help Joni in her fight to get more studies done as to the cause of this mysterious and debilitating illness.
