Episode Summary

Episode 4
Sometimes 19-year-old Katie O'Brien has the sensation that she's living in a world shrunk to the proportions of a doll house. At other times everyday objects seem strangely large. Plus: Imagine having a disorder so severe and debilitating that you ask doctors to conduct a surgical experiment on your brain. ''Primetime'' reports on two men who undergo a radical procedure in hopes of a life-changing improvement from Tourette's syndrome. Also: John Quiñones reports on 23-year-old Danny Ramos Gomez of Mexico who, since birth, has excessive hair all over his body due to a condition called hypertrichosis. As children, Danny and his brother -- who also suffers from the same condition -- were exhibited in cages and gawked at. Despite his suffering and humiliation, Danny has learned to live with his unique appearance and tells Quiñones he would never cut his hair. You Be The Doctor: The hour will also feature a medical mystery designed for viewer participation.moreless
