Let's talk now about Mental Health, some of us ignore talking about this topic or they are very sensitive in opening this topic to other people or in the family.

But why we should talk or give attention and importance to our Mental Health?

Mental Health is one of the aspects that can affect our lives forever, that is why we should not ignore or be shame that we are suffering from any signs of mental illness or issues.

There are some Mental Health Issues or Disorders that we are now familiar with or know about it such as Social Anxiety or Anxiety Disorders, Postpartum Depression, Bipolar Affective Disorder, Eating Disorder, Schizophrenia, Post-traumatic stress disorder, Psychosis, Behavioural and emotional disorders in children and many more to mention. And all of those Mental Issues have their treatment nowadays.

But are there Rare Mental Disorders that we don't know yet? or we see them but we don't even know that it is a disorder.

Let me introduce you to the 10 Rare Mental Disorders;

  1. Erotomania

A physiological or delusion disorder, in which a person assumes that someone they admire such as an artist, stranger that they just meet, new meet friend or love with is also in love or admire them back.

  1. Musical Ear Syndrome

This is also called musical hallucination or auditory hallucination, where you can hear music even there is no music played around you or the music you heard lately is playing again and again inside your brain. This syndrome can cause discomfort, stress, and even brain trauma.

  1. Visual Snow Syndrome

Around 2% of the people living in the population is being affected or have this syndrome.

People with Visual Snow Syndrome or visual hallucinations see things differently than others. They see many flickering tiny dots, like snow or static, that fill the entire visual field. It affects the person's daily life.

  1. Alien Hand Syndrome

Alien Hand Syndrome or also known as Dr. Strange love syndrome is a life-threatening syndrome because one of the sufferer's hands may take his/her own life.

Alien hand syndrome can be caused by several factors. Some people develop alien hand syndrome after a stroke, trauma, or tumor. It's sometimes associated with cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, and brain aneurysms. Alien hand syndrome is linked to brain surgeries that separate the two hemispheres of the brain.

  1. Folie a deux

It is a psychiatric syndrome in which the syndrome of delusion belief and sometimes hallucinations are transmitted from one individual to another.

It is also defined as an identical or similar mental disorder affecting two or more individuals, usually the members of a close family.

  1. Hemispatial Neglect

The syndrome of hemispatial neglect is characterized by reduced awareness of stimuli on one side of space, even though there may be no sensory loss. Although it is extremely common, it has proven to be a challenging condition to understand and treat.

Hemispatial neglect results most commonly from strokes and brain unilateral injury to the right cerebral hemisphere, with rates in the critical stage of up to 80% causing visual neglect of the left-hand side of space.

  1. Aphantasia

1 out of 50 people living in the population is being affected with aphantasia. Aphantasia is an inability of a person to visualize things or create an image using imagination.

  1. Synesthesia

Synesthesia is rare. It is a genetically linked trait estimated to affect only 5% of the general population. People who experience this during their lifetime are termed synesthetes; they tend to visualize numbers or music as colors, taste words, or feel a sensation on their skin when they smell certain scents.

  1. Factitious Disorder

Factitious disorder is a serious mental disorder in which someone deceives others by appearing sick, by purposely getting sick, or by self-injury. The factitious disorder also can happen when family members or caregivers falsely present others, such as children, as being ill, injured, or impaired.



  1. Dancing Mania

There is no consensus among modern-day scholars as to the cause of dancing mania. The several theories proposed range from religious cults being behind the processions to people dancing to relieve themselves of stress and put the poverty of the period out of their minds. Dancing Mania can cause death because of exhaustion.
