    *Blurred or double vision

    Less common early symptoms:

    *impaired thinking

    *abnormal sensations like itching, buring, tearing and/or stabbing pains

  • Sorry to say but you may have to be more specific. You can make up a disease that can range from one severe to the next and have many different ailments to it, or you can choose one and run with it. Also how many chars do you plan on having as main? Will they all have the same sickness? There are a lot of factors in picking a sickness in my head so need to know what you are looking for in a story in order to pick one that is suitable
