Kidney Stone...

just a horrid amount of pain that went from my lower back to my man onions. Of course the cure was equally bad... the Doc took a scope and went up through my "privates" into my bladder and up into my Ureter toward my Kidney before he found the little bugger and removed it.

Ugh. I had a case of shingles about 10 years ago while I was in law school. Felt like I was going to die.

It's not really health-threatening, but I occasionally get a bad case of excema when it's really stressful at work. It'll just drive you crazy.

How bout you guys? Lupus? Shingles? Whatcha got?
When I worked in Africa in '70s I contracted tick fever (they found the head of the tick inbedded in my groin) I was in a comma for 4 days ! & it took about a year for me to feel realy well again. The upside is, once you've had it & survived you're immune to getting it again ( a salted horse) unlike the malaria which still visits me on the now rare occasion.

It aint no joke. There was a chance of me going down for good as well.

Had all the childhood diseases -
measles, mumps, vomiting viruses, strains of influenza
ranging from mild to please-let-me-die.

But I think the very worst physical ailment for me has been
from poison ivy. Went for twenty two years without any,
then got a small case, then a fairly bad case, then got a ton of it
off of my dog on a planned four-day backpacking trip.
Less than thirty hours after leaving the car and hitting the trail,
I was back in town at a drive-in clinic, getting a shot and prescriptions.
MAJOR MISERY. I was a fright.
Prescription-strength benadryl with cold beer chasers helped some.

But I guess that's an allergic reaction, not a disease.

Sarcoidosis in my early 20s. I was lucky,it cleared up and went away with no more effects. It didn't have a lot of symptoms. I had a sore chest, and felt tired, and had lesions on my legs- that was the worst.
I now have an autoimmune thyroid disease, Hashimotos,runs in the family. I seem to get autoimmune things. I develop allergies- penicillin, sulfas, and most recently pistachios and cashews. However, I'm not like the bubble boy. THe doctor just said I'm prone to developing allergies.
