Daniel Murtagh (left), 29, from Harrogate, suffered months of weight loss, exhaustion and body aches. But blood tests found he had endocarditis which had eaten away at a valve in his heart. Medics discovered the infection had come from bacteria on a mildly-inflamed wisdom tooth that was causing him slight pain. Doctors immediately pulled it out before performing a seven-hour operation (right and inset) on his heart to give him a prosthetic valve. But Mr Murtagh, from Harrogate, was told that if he had left his condition another week he would probably have died.

Milo Browne (pictured left with mother Laura Davidson), from North Shields, needs constant care from his parents and is unable to sit without being fully supported. He will never have the ability to crawl, stand or walk and he is fed via a tube into his bowel as his stomach is too sensitive to eat normally. But medics have labelled him as a sufferer of 'Milo's Condition' because they have never seen anything like it before.

Mother left with drooping face after sudden paralysis relearns how to SMILE

Megan Dennis (left with husband Will, 41), 38, from Orlando, was left with just 17 per cent function on the left side of her face after developing Bell's palsy three years ago. The condition meant she was left unable to grin (right) - despite once being voted as having the 'best smile' as a teenager. It also meant she couldn't shut one of her eye lids, affected her ability to pronounce certain letters and caused her social anxiety. Despite trying a range of treatments and suggested techniques, she had almost given up hope after none proved successful. But after stumbling across a life-changing operation (inset) a year ago, she has now relearned how to smile.

Man describes seeing flesh-eating parasite ravaging his own skin 

WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT. A man has described seeing a flesh-eating parasite ravaging his own skin. Mark Ward, a retired firefighter from Prescott, Arizona, was in Belize with his wife Janina when he started to notice small pin-sized spots all over his body. Assuming them to be bug bites, he ignored them. But within days he was exhausted, losing weight rapidly, and the dots had transformed into huge lesions, bursting open. He had been infected by a flesh-eating parasite which was reproducing in his body and eating his cells. The infection - called cutaneous leishmaniasis - can be fatal if left untreated. However, bewildered doctors in Belize then in Arizona took more than a week to realize that Mark had more than a contact skin infection.

Mother-of-one has been left unable to have any more children after womb was removed

Natasha Richardson, 26, from Harrogate, was giving birth to Noah (inset) naturally when doctors decided she needed a Caesarean because there were problems with his heartbeat. During the operation, surgeons had accidentally cut her and left her prone to infection - but were unaware of the error until she returned to hospital 15 days later. She was immediately transferred to intensive care and operated on - where they discovered a severe flesh-eating bug - necrotising fasciitis. The infection had eaten away at her womb and surrounding tissue before she was transferred for a hysterectomy. Surgeons operated on her six times over the following months to remove all of the bacteria, leaving her unable to extend her family (pictured right with partner Jamie, 25, and son Noah, four). She has since received £200,000 in damages relating to the incident.

When she was rushed to hospital, she was only able to recognise her mother, Kelly, 36, and suffered from confusion and seizures. She spent 20 weeks off school fighting the infection (inset) and has since shared a heart-warming video explaining how it affected her.

Aubrielle Marsilio (left), from Pennsylvania, was diagnosed with meningitis when she was just six months old.

Her mother, Morgan, 24, feared she would never see her daughter walk. But after receiving prosthetics (bottom inset) last year, the toddler began practicing with her new limbs. And now, 12 months later, Aubrielle has finally taken her first steps (right) and her family couldn't be more proud.

Boy dies two weeks after contracting polio-like disease that is sweeping the US

A six-year-old boy has died after contracting a mysterious paralyzing polio-like disease which is sweeping the US. Daniel Ramirez (pictured left and top right with his parents Marijo De Guzman and Jose Ramirez, and bottom right as he fought for life in hospital) was admitted to Seattle Children's Hospital on October 15, with slurred speech, drooling, incontinence, and pain in his leg. At first his parents thought he had a stomach ache. On Sunday, two weeks after being admitted to hospital, tests revealed he was brain dead. He is one of hundreds to have contracted the disease in the US recently. The disease was first identified in 2014 when more than 100 children were hospitalized. Scores of them are yet to make a full recovery. Experts fear this year's outbreak could be worse than in previous years.

Meabh McHugh-Hill is lucky to not be blind after she left contact lens in for too long

Meabh McHugh-Hill (main), 23, from Liverpool, was in pain after she had kept her lens in for 10 hours - slightly longer than recommended.

It forced her left eye shut and made her right sensitive to light. Doctors told her to spend five days in bed with the curtains drawn to prevent any light from being let in - which was causing her pain. Luckily, she escaped losing her eyesight but has been warned she will never be able to wear contact lenses again.

Why a 40-year-old woman missed the signs and how YOU can avoid doing the same

Unlike most people who develop pancreatic cancer, which causes dangerously high blood sugar levels, Ali Stunt from Surrey was a slim, regular gym-goer with no history of the disease in her family. Now, nearly ten years on, Ali wonders if her apparently inexplicable diabetes was actually a warning sign - for soon afterwards, she had pancreatic cancer diagnosed.
