The Contenders: Page 3

41 Motor Neurone Disease

I think motor neurone disease should be at the top because it is a wicked disease that ravages your body in a matter of months it is incurable and usually fatal. It takes away your body movements and even your eating and speech are affected as well.

Can't understand why this illness has not previously been listed.A dreadful disease with no cure..leads to death.
The mind remains intact whilst the body slowly fails to function

One of the greatest people. Stephen Hawking, has this illness

48 Colitis

I have Ulcerative Colitis and there's blood, so.

49 Lupus Nephritis

I live with lupus I'm in constant pain ( every joint in my body) the fatigue is a killer, I have constant head aches, I have constant rashes over my body which become worse when exposed to sun light. I have the rash across my face, no pain relief seems to work. When a flare occurs I can't get out of bed some days.

My aunt died from lupus when I was five or four and she had three wonderful sons

The constant pain, migraines, rash, fatigue, getting sicker longer and easier than most, and the flairs can attack suddenly anywhere in your body. I've had my lungs attacked so bad thatvthe EMTs thought I was having an aneurysm, I couldent breath well enough to walk 10 feet for a week I was bed ridden anc had to crawl to the restroom and kitchen.i think it should be lot higher on this list.

#44 are you kidding me?! only because it is a little known disease. trying to get diagnosed is as bad as the disease its self taking an everage of 6 years.

52 Lassa Fever
53 Fibromyalgia

I have a very bad form of fibromyalgia, but I'm in constant agonizing pain. When I get sick, I can't even move my joints because of the pain. I'm lucky if I can sleep 3 straight hours. I'm also plagued by chronic migraines (they don't go away, they just waver in their pain levels. All of this leading to anxiety and depression. My skin feels like it's on fire whenever anything touches it (including clothes), my joints constantly ache, and widespread body pain at a pain scale (1-10) average 7.

I was severely disabled by this when I was first diagnosed, but I've learned to live with the pain. It hasn't gotten better, but it's a fact of life now. Though I'm still and forever will be a burden on any friends, partners, and family.

Now I know I said I have a severe case of fibromyalgia, but this disease/disorder disgustingly underranked. Fibro is chronic and incurable, and if you're lucky enough to find medications that help you... Well you hit the jackpot, but we're not all ...more

Iv had this 5 yrs. Someone told me it doesn't get progressively worse...they were wrong. From a fit and active person working full time, I'm now largely house bound and unable to follow my profession.
Whilst it doesn't kill you, it can make you feel life isn't worth living. There are people worse off than me...and at least I have a life whilst some face a death sentence. But with little investment or public awareness this disease still robe you of your stamina, health and ultimately any quality of life. Let's hope for a cure in the future.

57 Pneumonia

I almost had pneumonia. Today, it was a cold and rainy day and when I went to school, it was cold and rainy. During Language Arts, my lungs were aching when my teacher was reading a story. I fell on the floor and people thought I was relaxing. I wasn't! Luckily, it cured for some reason, and I still wonder how. - TeamRocket747

Pneumonia is very scary, your lungs start to fill up, making it harder to breathe, my regards to people have/ Know people that have (or had) pneumonia

I had this when I was about 2 months old and was so close to dying. That was just one of many times I was very close to dying in my 16 years of life.

I have this,and it is the worst thing to have.I am constantly coughing,have a high fever,etc.And it makes it so hard to breathe! I am also almost dying,and I just hate it!

58 Necrotizing Fasciitis

This disease is nasty as hell no joke my friend saw images on this disease and he threw up

The only way to cure this is surgery. It kills all cells it touches and is fast spreading. It starts out as a bruise and then kills all skin cells and tissue. There is no vaccination for this and surgery to remove dead skin is your only option. This is one of the worst desieses ever

This list is dumb, how is this below schizophrenia

WOrse than cancer

59 Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome

You are on constant pain That you don't realize what is painful any more. I have this horrible disease and one summer I was having stomach ache and vomiting since I could endure it. I did not go to doctor. One night it the vomiting got so bad I couldn't hold water in. So I walked to the nearest clinic, sat down in the waiting room for hours and finally when I saw the doctor done an ultrasound and said I am having a gallbladder attack right now and should be in the ER not his office. He said I am crazy and no way any one can be this calm during that pain. My answer said I am always in pain stomach ache is just another pain. My point of this story if you have EDS go to the doctor if you have any new pain even if you think it is not that painful comparing to your EDS pain. Because even though EDS won't kill you other conditions might.

EDS, is something you are born with. Your connective tissue and joints are effected. This is not something that hits you later in life. For anyone to say they developed this is lying. If you have a bad form of it, it will effect you your whole life. If you have CLASSICAL EDS, all you need to do is eat healthy, take vitamins, fish oils, and other natural sorces. You need to exercise! If you are a man, find your place in a gym, don't overdo it! Keep your muscles strong to support your joints! Take yoga classes or learn to mediate to center yourself. Be careful about banging into things. Don't do any activities that you can fall in at high speeds or possibly injure yourself. Watch a lot of comedy (serious) learn how to be okay with it. Let someone in your life to be you're partner, your emergency nurse! Learn how to clan and close your own wounds and take time to rest. Do NOT take western pain meds! Get yourself in medical marijuana. There are more than just pain Benefits. Use CBT oils ...more

There are a few kinds of ED. Some deadly, some not at all. My husband is 41. His body is a roadmap of scars thought his life. However if you eat healthy, work out and avoid activities such as bike riding, life can be wonderful. This is only 1 kind of ED. It effects his connective tissue and joints. Meaning... he cuts very very easy. He has thousands of stitches. He can't get road rash... his skin just splits open. It hurts just like it would to any of us. However the cut will not be deep. Only the skin and tissue opens. I basically super glue him closed. His joints dislocate easy. He's used to that though.

I went from a normal young adult to having permanent moderate-severe chronic pain, a limp requiring a cane or crutch at all times, and frequent and unpreventable major injuries (mainly joint dislocations). I stopped being normal at 20. That's when the permanent handicap started and had only worsened in the years since. I've dislocated literally almost all the bones one can dislocate without dying from it.

60 Zika Virus

This disease is one of the worst I have never encountered. I can't believe that unborn people get their minds messed with from a bite. It's just so sad.

Schizophrenia my ass, THIS is the deadliest disease!

I saw a baby seize out and die after being bit by a mosquito, and it was so sad!

Ugh, I thought the mosquitoes that carry malaria were bad, but this messes with your unborn child... - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ
