Medical science, which has made incredible progress in the last century, has turned some of the deadly diseases of the past into mere ailments. Thus, the life of a modern person is much longer than in the past, and his life is much more comfortable. However, some mysterious, rare and largely incurable diseases continue to exist today. One of these mysterious and rare diseases is the “Shackle Man Syndrome”, which once again manifested itself in the world-famous singer Celine Dion.
The Canadian singer announced that he has Strict Man Syndrome in a post he made on his social media account and that he has difficulty walking and singing, which is why concerts scheduled for next year have been cancelled. So what is this solid person syndrome? Here’s what you need to know about the mysterious 1 in a million solid man syndrome.
The solid man syndrome was first described in 1956 by F. P. Moersch and H. W. Woltmann.
The duo’s work, which lasted for many years, was based primarily on their research and observations of 14 patients.
What is a hard personality syndrome?
The syndrome is a neurological disease that refers to uneven stiffness and stiffness of the muscles of the trunk and various limbs in general. However, people with the syndrome develop extreme sensitivity to certain external stimuli, such as sound, touch, or sadness, and muscle spasms occur as a result.
On the other hand, the syndrome is known to cause humpback or various posture disorders, and in some cases, patients cannot walk or even move.
Many people with Strict Person Syndrome are afraid to leave the house.
Because the syndrome prevents patients from walking and moving. However, patients fear that loud triggers in the street can cause muscle spasms, resulting in a risk of falling. Moreover, these fears are not unfounded.
People with the syndrome lose the reflexes of normal people due to muscle stiffness or spasms. For this reason, they are often in danger of falling. On the other hand, their falls can cause serious injury.
According to scientific research, women are more likely to develop rigid body syndrome than men.
Scientists state that women are 2 times more likely to get the syndrome. However, most often the syndrome occurs in middle-aged people. Experts say that the syndrome can be seen in people of all ages, but is usually seen in people in their 40s and 50s. On the other hand, more than half of people with the syndrome have various autoimmune diseases.
Solid Man Syndrome is an extremely rare disease that affects one person in a million.
However, it is also quite cryptic. Because what causes the syndrome is not fully known today. However, since it is a neurological disorder, research on the origin of the syndrome is also focused in this area. Other studies suggest that the syndrome occurs as a response to certain conditions that develop in the brain, spinal cord, or immune system.
How is it diagnosed?
Solid Man Syndrome is often confused with diseases such as Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and fibromyalgia. In addition, some cases are known to be associated with misdiagnosis, such as anxiety or phobia, before the syndrome is diagnosed. For this reason, a blood test that measures the level of an antibody called “glutamic acid decarboxylase” has recently been used to diagnose the syndrome. This antibody is found 10 times more than normal, for example, in patients with diabetes mellitus. People with solid person syndrome have 100 times more antibodies to glutamic acid decarboxylase than normal.
There is no known cure for the syndrome!
For this reason, various anti-anxiety medications are commonly used in the treatment of the disease. In addition to various muscle relaxants, some drugs that affect the immune system are also used. According to some studies of the treatment process of the syndrome, it has been established that these drugs are effective in eliminating stiffness in the muscles and reducing the developed sensitivity to external stimuli. On the other hand, these drugs are also claimed to be useful in the treatment of posture disorders in people with the syndrome.
