The woman (22) suddenly becomes very lost – what is behind it almost cost her life



Suddenly, Hannah Farrell found it difficult to talk and became oblivious. The doctors put her in psychiatry – a fatal mistake.

The summer of 2017 was very stressful for a 22-year-old student Hannah Farrell from Dublin, Ireland. The exam was, and she had just started working in the deli. Too much for Farrell-the young woman thought of a breakdown when her body went on strike, she became more and more oblivious, had trouble talking and had to sleep more than usual.

When she went to the doctor, he also suspected psychological problems. A therapist diagnosed depression and referred the young woman to a psychiatric clinic – only then did the doctors notice That something else was responsible for the young woman's complaints,

Only sleepy and very forgetful; it was behind it

Referring to the British news portal, Farrell recalled:I did not feel depressed, deep inside I knew that something more evil was going on.But I felt as if the doctors assumed that I simply did not want to get help for mental illness. "

The change in their behavior, the demand for high sleep, the unclear pronunciation, and the extreme forgetfulness were not mentally conditioned: Doctors have not identified a dangerous brain infectionIt was responsible for the symptoms. An MRI scan provides clarity: the young woman has suffered from brain inflammation, inflammation of the brain, which is usually caused by a viral infection. But Farrell suffered from a special form of the disease, the so-called anti-oxidant receptor encephalitis – an autoimmune version of the disease. What the disease caused Farrell, the doctors do not know.

Avian flu Influenza A: Outcome of influenza A virus (computer view from January 2006). The H5N1 avian influenza virus is part of a group of influenza A viruses, as well as a large number of human influenza viruses. The virus is spherical, its diameter is only 0.1 milliseconds of millimeter. Inside there's only room for some proteins and genetic material.
