It's All in Your Head True Stories of Imaginary Illness

Author: Dr. Suzanne O'Sullivan Format: Paperback Release Date: 14/04/2016

Pauline first became ill when she was fifteen. What seemed to be a urinary infection became joint pain, then life-threatening appendicitis. After a routine operation Pauline lost all the strength in her legs. Shortly afterwards, convulsions started. But Pauline's tests are normal: her symptoms seem to have no physical cause whatsoever. This may be an extreme case, but Pauline is not alone. As many as a third of people visiting their GP have symptoms that are medically unexplained. In most, an emotional root is suspected which is often the last thing a patient wants to hear and a doctor to say.

Brainstorm Detective Stories From the World of Neurology

Author: Dr. Suzanne O'Sullivan Format: Hardback Release Date: 05/04/2018

From the Wellcome Prize-winning author of It's All in Your Head Brainstorm examines the stories of people whose symptoms are so strange even their doctor struggles to know how to solve them. A man who sees cartoon characters running across the room; a teenager who one day arrives home with inexplicably torn clothes; a girl whose world turns all Alice in Wonderland; another who transforms into a ragdoll whenever she even thinks about moving. The brain is the most complex structure in the universe, and neurologists must puzzle out life-changing diagnoses from the tiniest of clues - it's the ultimate in medical detective work. In this riveting book, one of the UK's leading neurologists takes you with her as she follows the trail of her patients' symptoms: feelings of deja vu lead us to a damaged hippocampus; spitting and fidgeting to the right temporal lobe; fear of movement to a brain tumour; a missed heart beat to the limbic system. It's a journey that will open your eyes to the unfathomable intricacies of the brain, and the infinite variety of human capacity and experience. Praise for It's All in Your Head `As addictive as a great box set, makes you rethink some of your closest relationships and wonder about some of the people you know best; and above all, like all truly great books, it is about love and compassion' Satnam Sanghera, The Times `Remarkable... It should be on the reading list of every medical student' P.D. Smith, Guardian `An extraordinary book... an important one too' Kathryn Hughes, Mail on Sunday `Read this book' British Medical Journal
