Something extremely weird going on in New York??

New York teens diagnosed with 'mass psychogenic illness'
Published January 20, 2012The Wall Street Journal
For several months, a group of teenage girls in upstate New York have been suffering from a mysterious ailment: twitching and verbal tics similar to those seen in Tourette’s patients, but with no apparent organic cause. 

Environmental tests have turned up nothing, according to the Le Roy Central School District. A physician with the New York State Department of Health told NBC News that infectious and communicable diseases have also been ruled out.

The diagnosis: “mass psychogenic illness,” or MPI, according to neurologist Laszlo Mechtler, vice president of Dent Neurologic Institute, which has treated 11 of the girls. In MPI, physical symptoms that are perfectly real but that have psychological roots rather than some underlying organic cause appear in a group of people, often spreading from one to the next.

When stress or anxiety manifest as physical symptoms — including twitching, paralysis or other loss of function — in an individual, it’s called a conversion disorder, Mechtler tells the Wall Street Journal's Health Blog.

But when it happens to many people at one time, it crosses into the realm of MPI, he says. Usually that happens when there’s a report or fear of a chemical exposure, toxin or virus — and suddenly people at a school or factory are coughing, sneezing, reporting dizziness or fainting.

The symptoms are believed to arise from emotional reactions to underlying stresses. “These girls are suffering from disabling symptoms,” says Mechtler. “But the issue at hand is that they aren’t caused by a tumor, stroke, infection, drug” or other organic or environmental factor.

I don't know what this is about but I'm sure the enemy is lurking nearby this unfourtunate situation... When I saw this young lady on the news last night something evil came to mind and a strange presence tried to enter the room.
I don't know what exactly they've been exposed to but they need our intercession anyway.. But I'm just wondering if some sort of curse has been placed on them? Scratch Chin

Saints I suggest we proceed with caution allow the Holy Spirit to guide and His mighty angels to act as He directs. Let's pray these girls to health & salvation... But make sure we wear our armor.

i hear ya.........i used to have a friend who when stressed would twitch. God knows so lift them up in prayer, but nevertheless this sort of thing is being labelled and yet again people do not know what to do with these sorts of things and love to coin a disease. It kinda looks good on their resume for medical experts if they have coined a term. I suffer from M.C.B.A which is a mild case of baloney avoidance so I would be careful about all these terms that are flying around too.

Thing is the enemy wants us to take our focus off the situation at hand and that is, Jesus is the healer and focus of our lives, no mattewr what doctors diagnose people as having, He wants us well.

Good on you for spotting this one out and no matter where it is NYC or Kansas or Timbucktoo as we Aussies say, the devil is roaming about, but Jesus is everywhere!
