12 doctors share the weirdest disease symptoms they've ever seen.

We all know the regular disease symptoms, like fevers, nausea, headache, etc. But what about *checks notes* maple syrup pee?

Yes, that is a real symptom. And doctors are heading to Reddit to explain why that and other strange bodily happenings could be a reason to call your GP. Someone asked, "Doctors of Reddit, what are the weirdest symptoms of a disease that you know of?" and here's what 12 MDs delivered.

1. But why maple syrup?!

BCKD Deficiency (branched-chain ketoacid dehydrogenase deficiency) but better known as Maple Syrup Urine Disease is as it sounds. People, usually new borns, have pee that smells like maple syrup. It is very serious and can easily be fatal and not every hospital automatically tests for it at birth. - 100LittleButterflies

2. Cravings are weird.

There's something called pica, which is when people develop a strong appetite for things with no nutrition (ice, dirt, hair, etc). It's seen with some psychological disorders, but also more common stuff like iron deficiency anemia and pregnancy. - AvatarTreeFiddy
