CAUTION: He Almost Died Because Of This Nasty Habit You Probably Have
Biting fingernails is a habit that often starts in childhood.
Studies show 60% of children and 45% of teenagers bite their nails. This manner becomes less common after age 18, but it can continue into adulthood. Many adults and children are often unaware they are biting their nails because doing so has become a habit.
Stress and boredom are the main nail-biting culprits for most people. Frustration and loneliness are additional emotional triggers that can lead to nail biting. Some research suggests genes may play a role or in some cases, it can also be a symptom of a psychological condition, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Regardless the reason, nail biting has both physical and emotional consequences.
This is that man, Jon G. This 40-year-old man could not stop nail-biting even after doctor’s advice. This habit caused a septic infection, which was quite severe and led to the heart attack. It is very dangerous.
Doctors tell that he bit his fingers till they bled. His fingers were almost damaged because of the habit. His fingers became numb of the pain when he used to inflict on them.
Fingers in poor condition
According to the physicians he used to bite the nails until the fingers started to bleed. The constant biting numbed them so the pain would no stop him from biting.
ANXIETY AND DEPRESSIONS ARE THE CAUSE
His doctor, Dr. Vernon, told that John’s nails were always in poor condition, and that they were often bleeding when he came to the doctors. He also said that John’s habit was fueled by constant anxiety and got worse after he got depressed.
At first, just a bit of a bleeding wound up worsening, yet one of those bound infected him with septic infection. Even IV antibiotics could not help him so, as a result to that his fingertips were amputated. He felt good for some time after one part was removed, but that feeling did not last for long. As per his surgeon, Dr. Chye Ng, days after Gardener’s 40th birthday, he had a heart attack from the septic infection!
THIS WAS REALLY NOT EXPECTED
