Two Point Hospital's bizarre yet hilarious illnesses
Wacky illnesses featured in the upcoming business simulation Steam PC game
We've all been there - that moment when you notice something isn't quite right with your body or weird symptoms emerge to the point where you search the internet for answers.
But what if your can't find an explanation as to why your head is now a light bulb, or why you can't stop dancing to hits of the 70s?
Fortunately, Two Point Hospital is here to help, the hilarious business simulation game from the makers of Theme Hospital - featuring a series of (thankfully) fictional illnesses that require your attention as you build and improve a number of hospitals - improving their ranking, researching new medicines and keeping people alive.
We've put together a list of illnesses included in the game and the requirements to treat them. We'll be updating the list around the game's launch on August 30th, so that more information is available, as well as any other illnesses we might have missed out or didn't have enough information on before launch.

Sounds like, but nothing to do with, the hit medical TV show. Grey Anatomy is when patient's lose all of their color, hence the grey part.
