3. YOUR MUSCLES TURN INTO BONE
“Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva is a weird disease that progressively turns your muscles into bone. As your muscles tear from exertion or injury, they are calcified, and your body grows new bone that fuses to your existing skeletal system.”
4. STONE MAN SYNDROME
“I’d go with a genetic condition called FOP, also known as Stone Man Syndrome.
Now from the name you can already tell this isn’t going to be a pretty disease. It occurs when the body can’t repair itself properly, and instead of growing muscle tissue, it creates bone.
So you have these bone growths, well maybe they’re like tumors and you can cut them out with surgery, right? Sure, if you like getting your bone-tumors replaced with even more bone!
Eventually the bone builds up so much that you can’t move, you can’t eat, you can’t speak, and you’re confined to a hospital bed as you are slowly imprisoned within your own body. You essentially become a living statue.
Pic of skeleton if anyone’s interested.
I wouldn’t recommend google images for this, cause I tried it and not only do you get skeletons, but you see what the people looked like while still alive. Pretty grim stuff.”
