It's not a disorder, but I have a extremely rare personality type. I am an INFJ according to the Myers-Briggs test. Only one percent of the worlds population have my personality. Among the male population the percentage is even lower. I have never come across anybody like me and you others will probably never will have as well.


I never thought I would find someone on this forum with my same personality type. I also have been diagnosed with INFJ personality and I'm a male. My only setback is I also have ADD so I piss myself off a lot.

One of the reasons I don't want to travel to third world countries. If you have traveled and have a problem afterwards get checked out right away. I've been told that you can pick up a worm or parasite that can give you a seizure if it moves to your brain. Just Google the following:

"seizures worms humans"

It will scare you, and if this hasn't been looked for a bit negligent an the doctors part. You can add "statistics" for better results.

Hmm, well I really don't consider these "diseases," but I guess it's close enough xD

I was diagnosed with 'Polycystic Ovary Syndrome,' & let's just say it basically ruined my life. It's not life threatening or anything.. BUT all the symptoms & complications just piss me off >.>

Also, this one is kind of weird & I have yet to find someone else who does the same thing..
I have this thing called 'Dermatophagia' & basically.. I eat the skin off my fingers. Like... every minute I find myself just ripping off my skin & eating it. Sometimes when I'm really bored, I just get a nail clipper & rip it off with that,lololol. It seriously doesn't hurt though.

I do the same with the inside of my mouth. I just bite off the skin, & my mouth usually bleeds more, but it doesn't hurt at all o3o

I actually recently just found out it was a type of Impulse Control Disorder! Interesting..

Hmm. I think I may have Parkinson's "disease" because my hands will not stop shaking.. I've boxed/fought for a long time and this symptom seems to have appeared. However, it might not be Parkinsons.. I think this could be easily fixed with acupuncture.

I think you're a lot too young to seriously be considering parkinson's disease, maybe an anxiety problem, or imbalance of hormones or even hyper/hypoglycaemia.

Too much caffeine can also cause shakiness!

Cardiac dysrhythmia or irregular heartbeat, not sure how rare or serious it really is though. The only side effects seem to be an increased risk of heart attack, curse you Light Yagami. I've only ever had one scare with it, quite recently, thought I was taking one but I guess it was just the normal chest pain I sometimes get, multiplied to a slightly excruciating level.

I've had severe Henoch–Schönlein purpura for the last 4 years now. It's a massive pain having it, the symptoms are a rash caused by the inflammation of the blood vessels which comes back quite often, generally when I have a cold, am stressed, have exercised or really if I'm tired. It also triggers joint pain so I struggle with movement and sometimes gives me abdominal cramps. My intestines and kidneys also bleed which means the kidneys aren't functioning normally which is quite worrying. My HSP is a lot worse than what would normally affect a person. I've had the rash cover most of my body before except for my torso and head and it even got on my eye lids and they swelled up so I was unable to see for a while.

HSP is caused by my immune system. It basically targets my body cells rather than pathogens in my body which is why the symptoms are a lot more severe when I have the Flu.

Doctors are quite confused as to how it's lasted this long and are considering doing a biopsy on my kidneys to see if they have been damaged too much :(

There's no cure for this yet so I just have to until it finally stops (If it stops)

You can find out more details of it here:

I hope so! I haven't gone to the doctor yet for it. I do know people with early Parkinson's disease though.. It surely isn't an anxiety problem, imbalance of hormones, or hyper/hypoglycaemia. I eat very healthy and I've been blood tested many times.

It's certainly a type of tremor, but I don't know what category it will fall under. Just VERY hopefully not Parkinson's.

Edit - and no, I do not have a caffeine problem either. I'm aware that it will cause people to shake though, haha. Lots of those "Energy Drink Tough Guys" have proved that to me.
