The Ravages of Nightingale's Disease

Have you ever heard of
Nightingale’s Disease? It is a disease described in the late 1800s by Florence
Nightingale, who herself suffered from it. It is a potentially-fatal,
multi-systemic disease that involves almost every organ system in the body,
including the central and peripheral nervous system, the autonomic nervous
system that controls things like blood pressure and heart rate, the musculoskeletal
system, the skin, the immune system, the heart and blood vessels, multiple
endocrine glands, the gastrointestinal system, and bladder. Patients with
Nightingale’s disease are two to three times as likely as others their own age to
die of heart disease, as well as four times as likely to die of liver disease,
and ten times as likely to die of suicide. It affects both sexes at any age. In
fact, 10-20% of cases start in childhood, potentially leading to a life-time of
suffering and early death.
