    Sleeping Sickness


    This parasitic affliction is spread by flying insects injecting tiny parasites into the victim's bloodstream and inducing fever, headache, joint pain, swelling of glands in the back and neck, and most notably fatigue. The disease gradually infects the brain, causing confusion, reduced coordination, difficulty keeping track of time, and insomnia. The best cure for this disease is dosing the patient with the poison arsenic if the patient survives, there's a cumulative 30% chance that the disease is immediately cured.
