Doctor Challenges Comedian: Real Or Fake Disease?

4. Stu 2020.
795 221 Pregleda

I invited comedian, advocate, and most importantly my friend Pamela Rae Schuller over for a little game. I quizzed her on which diseases were real and which were fake, and if she could get it right then I’d donate $100 to the charity of her choice, the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. Here’s the catch: literally every disease I quizzed her on is fake, having all come from movies and TV shows. Pam was squirming back and forth trying to figure out if diseases from Pokemon, Contagion, Spongebob Squarepants, Batman, The Simpsons, and countless other programs were real. I followed it up with some real things in medicine that sound fake but aren’t.

  • Fun fact: when I was pregnant with my daughter I developed Geographic Tongue. I talked to my Dr and mentioned I did my research and I was thinking it was this. she informed me its not a real thing, made me worry A TON and said I need to get a tongue swab cause it could be an infection etc. After the visit nothing was ever done, in fact she never mentioned tests again. It has been almost 2 years since my daughter was born, the lesions come and go. This is the ONLY confirmation I'm not crazy lol thank you Dr. Mike!

  • I actually have a Geographic Tongue! My mom works at a dental clinic and one of the dentists was the one who diagnosed me! The patterns changed often and sometimes the tongue was completely fine for a few days before the patterns returned again. I never had it as a kid, and the first time I saw the change on my tongue was around 2014-2015. It's sometimes very painful, like when I eat spicy or salty food, or drink warm drinks. Just imagine burning your tongue on very hot coffee, and keep drinking it even though it burns. That's how it feels eating spicy food..

  • Hey Doctor Mike. I’ve have had this thing going on with my hearing lately. One day my right ear just started ringing for five minutes about and then I couldn’t hear anything out of it. A few days later the same thing happened to my other ear, and I got my hearing back in my right ear. I originally thought it was just excess earwax, but the doctors took a look and cleaned my ears and it still happened. A few weeks later I lost 90% of my hearing for a week and a half. I’ve very slowly gained my hearing back somehow, but I still occasionally lose some hearing. Any guess?

  • Chimera is a genetic disease no? Learned about it recently in a reproduction class lol doesn’t have whatever effect it has in mission impossible I assume, but chimerism is infertility due to having two sets of DNA due to one fraternal twin absorbing the DNA of the other twin resulting in the death of one of the embryos early on :-)

  • Although "Chimera" is not a real disease or illness, there is something called chimerism. Chimerism is the term for single organisms having multiple sets of DNA. An organism with Chimerism is called a Chimera btw.
