Episode Summary

Too Young to be Sick
Ever since he was a year old, young Harry Crowther has been dealing with some unusual symptoms. He develops unusual spots on his torso, the skin on his abdomen tightens, his collarbones are unusually small, his nose is small and pointy, his eyes are bulging, and his teeth are overcrowded in his mouth. Harry's parents search for answers for six years and eventually find out that he has atypical progeria syndrome. Aspiring nurse Sadie Jones had just married her boyfriend and moved into a new house with him, when suddenly, she wakes up with excruciating chest pain. At first, Sadie believes it's simply heartburn, but the attacks only intensify; she starts vomiting water in her sleep; she regurgitates her food; she gets violent hiccups; and she vomits a foam-like substance. Many doctors dismiss her complaints, but one gastroenterologist finds out that Sadie has a disorder called achalasia.moreless
