Episode Summary

Stolen Senses
Tammy Bangs has been a healthy 25-year-old woman, until she starts feeling extremely fatigued and achy. At first, it appears to be just mononucleosis, but things get really serious when Tammy cannot urinate at all and gets tingling sensations in her lower body that leads to paralysis. It turns out that Tammy's mono has actually led to her more severe symptoms, which are due to a rare disease called acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM). A 43-year-old mother of two named Nadine Miller suddenly has trouble seeing and reading. Initially, she appears to have inflammation from sarcoidosis, but unfortunately, her vision keeps deteriorating shortly after being treated with steroids. Eventually, Nadine also begins to have frightening hallucinations, and she is diagnosed with chronic relapsing inflammatory optic neuritis.moreless
