My dad is a diabetic and heart patient. Though he managed it spotively, I'm more affected by seeing him taking medicines and needs to be too careful in his food. He needs food at correct time otherwise his sugar level will go down which can make him unconsious even. We are worried if he goes out alone :( My mom has back bone pain and still she manages with that taking care of the whole family. She feels that hell pain everytime she sits or gets up. May GOD help her.

I am terribly sorry for that, truly I am, but I asked for weird ailments though. How long has your dad been a diabetic?

the weirdest thing I have ever heard of has nothing to do with human health I was watching a show the other day and saw a dog that had severe allergies that is not the weird part whats weird was the fact that the dog was allergic to people I have heard of people being allergic to dogs but I had no idea that dogs could be allergic to people

Hmmm, filariasis probably.. paragonimiasis can be too. Filariasis, a persoo is disfigured with that disease. There's swelling (ugly) in extremities as well as the reproductive organ (for males). The swelling is due to manifestation of worms in the lymphatic system of a person. Paragonimiasis on the other hand, erm this disease is caused by a lung fluke. The symptoms to this is very similar as that of tuberculosis. I think I'm amazed at this disease, most of the time the doctors will not know it's paragonimiasis and most of them diagnose it as tuberculosis.
