Episode Summary

Episode 2
This week 'Primetime: Medical Mysteries' looks at some of the rarest disorders and syndromes in medicine today. From people born with their internal organs completely reversed and a man with extremely stretchy skin, to people who feel in constant motion, the program examines cases that leave scientists and doctors with unanswered questions. What if a person's whole body was reversed, with organs residing on the opposite side from where they should be? Could a body still work? Then: Imagine people who go on a cruise or a plane trip but, upon finishing the trip, their brains never get off and they experience a constant sense of motion. And: Jay Schadler looks at a bizarre genetic condition called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome that leaves its patients with elastic skin, oddly flexible joints and in constant pain. You Be The Doctor: The hour will also feature a medical mystery designed for viewer participation.moreless
