Untheir Syndrome

    A good friend of mine, a retired Doctor, told me about this one. A very useful condition to know about!
    To first define syndrome..
    Apparently this syndrome was discovered in Germany by and English Doctor. It is characterized by lots of separate and apparently unconnected symptoms. We see it all the time with the patients who tell us it hurts "everywhere, all the time" or who tell you about their primary symptom only after cataloguing every minor ache, twinge, bruise, fungal nail etc before getting to the point.

    Sound familier?

    It is so called because of the German patients who present with it. When asked where it hurt they said:-

    "it hurt here. Unt heir, Untheir, unt under there, Untheir etc etc."

    Thought I'd share ;)

    Regards

    Oh that's funny! And so true.

    I do however have to be picky on your spelling.her mate. "Here" in German is HIER. Also the word for "and" is UND. Kanst du es verstanden?

    Having just been to watch Inglorious Basterds at the weekend I'm a little touchy on mispronounciation and spelling of European languages.
