1. Trichotillomania:
A person who suffers from this strange disease has urge to pull one’s hair out. Whether it is body hair, scalp hair, beard hair, eyelashes, nose hair or eyebrows. Abnormalities in the natural brain chemicals serotonin and dopamine may play a role in causing this disease.

A sufferer of this disease becomes convinced that a family member generally a spouse has been replaced by an identical looking imposter. Victims of this awful disease regularly report that their loved ones or significant others are being impersonated by other people. Sometimes in severe cases, this has led to the victim assaulting who he or she believes is the imposter, but is actually the relative or spouse in question. Some victims even second guess their own reflections in the mirror!

4. Pica:
This disease generates an urge to consume things other than food. Sufferers eat materials such as paper, clay, dirt, glue, coal, even feces and lint. Medical researchers have tenuously connected Pica with a mineral deficiency, however experts haven’t yet nailed down a real, firm cause or cure for this strange disorder.

5. Cotard’s Syndrome:
Those who suffer from this disease feel that they are dead and non-existent. The sufferer may also feel that he/she lost his or her blood or internal organs; the patient even feels that the internal parts are putrefying. It can show up due to mental illness and is also associated with depression.
