I have searched online but I haven’t gotten the results I expected. But, from an experience which isn’t a beautiful experience, a human body can carry many diseases without an individual knowing. An individual might complain of some pain but when he/she goes to the hospital or clinic, he/she is diagnosed with another disease which he/she wasn’t aware of.
Two days ago I was diagnosed with yet another disease, diabetes though I need to go for more testing to be sure. You might ask, which other diseases are you infected or affected with?
Well, I’m allergic to pollen, animals’ fur, dust, strong perfumes among others. Thus, it’s a problem of the lungs which you have to add the chest problems. At times I find it hard to breathe, feel tightness on my chest and sometimes chest pains.
Going on, I have an ulcer that is stubborn to leave my body but taking medication is helping a lot. Add to ulcers stomach bloating and swelling. I haven’t yet received a conclusive fact whether the ulcers is the cause of the bloating and swelling. I always feel full and one might say I’m three or four-month old pregnant.
Then, I have eyes problem. I inherited eye problems from my father thus am allergic to dust, light, strong perfumes or smells and so on. Even lung issues, I have inherited it from my father. I’m told am not asthmatic but I doubt it if I consider the breathing difficulties I experienced when young including wheezing and coughing and other symptoms of asthma.
Lastly, add back pain. I kind of inherited bone problems from my mother. And all these diseases, I have experiencing them for more than seven years.
I forgot, kidney and I think liver. Though these aren’t grave. I only need to take more fluids, especially water and eat more fruits.
That’s how much a human body can handle diseases or be affected with many diseases at once. I don’t know the maximum number a body can contain them but am amazed at the body’s immune system.
