We trust doctors with our lives; they are some of the most educated and well-respected members of society. But what happens if they can't diagnose a patient? This high stake medical procedural follows patients as they suffer from bizarre, often terrifying illnesses. None of which doctors learned about in medical school. Medical Mysteries is a Parcast Original, with new episodes every Tuesday.

I LOVE this podcast. Every episode balances science with story and stays interesting throughout. It keeps a respectful tone for those involved while not hiding the truth.

Could be very good...but...

Topics are interesting. The style of reading every other sentence by the hosts is annoying made worse by Molly's voice and pronunciations. Having some hearing loss makes trying to listen to the slurry speech frustrating. I am disappointed that I see no improvement from the first to the most current episode. Can't take the narration any more - very disappointed that there was no improvement after 10 episodes.

Drooping eyelids. Difficulty swallowing. Weak arms. None of these symptoms by themselves seem particularly deadly. Nor do they seem like they could all be symptoms of the same illness. But they are. And the illness does kill - suddenly, and without warning. A diagnosis evaded doctors for centuries. With such a mysterious background, it seemed that a treatment for the disease was impossible.
