* The Tokaimura Nuclear Incident of 1999. Three technicians improperly feeding a uranium compound into a feeder reactor saw what may have been the most beautiful thing they ever saw, (Cherenkov Radiation, a beautiful blue glow which is also a surefire sign that the nuclear fuel has reached criticality) but in doing so, two of the three technicians, Hisashi Ouchi and Masato Shinohara, [[CruelAndUnusualDeath died painful deaths]]. Ouchi was kept alive for almost three months while doctors tried to do everything to save him, but even so, they also kept him alive to study the effects of radiation on the human body. His skin and eyes boiled away, his chromosomes couldn't be arranged into any order, for they were fragmented and destroyed. His organs failed and melted into goo. Not even transplanted bone marrow could survive in his body before it was destroyed by the radiation. Eventually, his bones turned black, and his muscles fell away. He begged the doctors to end his life, but they refused, thinking that there was a chance that he could be saved. To make matters worse, the doctors began carrying out experiments on his dying body, while he was ''still alive''. When his intestines failed, an endoscope was inserted to look into the cavity that was left behind, and on the 50th day, his heart stopped several times, but doctors revived him each and every time. To quote the Coroner:

** Most sufferers of this condition die after a year or two. Only 4% last for 10 years or more. Hawking lived with the disease for half a century.
** This fact has led to question whether it's actually [=ALS=] or not, and stymied a definitive diagnosis until an autopsy can be performed. Hawking actually had to retire from his post as Lucasian Professor of Mathematics (the same title once held by Sir Isaac H. Newton) because nobody is allowed to hold that job-title after the year of their 67th birthday.

* One of the most common forms of this is Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Motor Neurone Disease or Lou Gehrig's Disease. If you have Lou Gehrig's Disease, your motor neurons, which are responsible for triggering actions, gradually decay away while the rest of your nervous system (including your brain) remains perfectly intact. You can still feel pain and boredom but cannot move to avoid it. [[ParanoiaFuel Clumsiness is one of the first symptoms]]. Poor Stephen Hawking gets more of a taste of this than anyone ''ever'' wants, living like this for ''decades'', though he at least gets sight, hearing and enough eye movement to control his computer (which does the communicating for him), along with retaining his incredible mind.

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trigeminal_neuralgia Trigeminal Neuralgia]], a chronic pain syndrome, has been described as one of the worst things a person can experience. Attacks from this condition last from a few seconds to a few minutes and have been likened to ''being struck in in the face by lightning.'' Said attacks can occur from the most mundane physical contact. Sadly, about 27% of sufferers are DrivenToSuicide, which is also why it's been called the Suicide Disease.

* Contrary to stereotypes that some would try to have you believe, autistic people, ''including'' the supposedly most "low-functioning" autistics, ''do'' have thoughts and ''do'' try to communicate. The problem is, their default ways of communicating are either misinterpreted or outright ignored by most neurotypical people, especially those in the clinical professions, and instead (mis)categorized as "temper-tantrums", "rebellious defiance", "aggression", and a perennial favorite phrase, "socially inappropriate behavior".
** This leads to an even ''more'' NightmareFuel rich situation: attempting to "cure" a patient's autism by either drugging them until they can't object to their (mis)treatment, or worse, "aversive" therapy but which has now been banned in many places and ruled to be a form of torture.

** The notorious Cordyceps-type fungus was originally thought to actually infect the host's nervous system, rewiring it for the fungus' own purpose. Only recently [[http://www.pnas.org/content/114/47/12590.full studies shown]] that it's actually even worse: Cordyceps fungi infect the ''muscle tissue'' of the host, not the brain. An infected insect is forced to act in ways that are not its own, forced to climb towards high places before the fungus finally kills its host and spreads its spores.
