If you are obsessive about the minutae of close-up magic, you may be afflicted with Eugene AspBurger's Syndrome.
If you drop your coins when you attempt to palm over a dozen, you may have T. Nelson Downe's Syndrome.
If your assistants complain about how touchy feely you are, then perhaps you are feeling a bit Randi.
Sides hurt whenever you are sealed in a block of ice? Perhaps you have aBlainedecitis.

If you blink when you do secret moves maybe you have a sleight flinch.

If your muscles cramp up while making an object vanish, you might have "pulled" something...

And if you have ambigious sexuality and were wrongly accused of being a rapist, you would be a David cop-her-field.

Card cuts. The band-aid bill is enormous. And since I have no liability insurance, I'd never ask a spectator "please cut the cards".

If you have trouble reading the spots on the cards, you may have Cardaracts.

Not a disease, but an injury I'd like to see on obnoxious card rifflers during convention shows... finger break.

Threw my back out moving two mattresses up the stairs at once...guess I shouldn't have attempted the double lift.
My friend Samantha has sprained her ankle three times when she's fallen on ice...they call her Slippery Sam.
When I'd fall and skin my knee when I was little, I'd tell people I had a Bobo...you know, like a booboo...whatever. Honestly I hate these types of threads because I think a lot of magicians should stick to magic and avoid trying to be funny because it's so awkward, but this one was far too macabre and clever not to comment. Nice work, Critter...I'm proud we come from the same state Smile

Crissangeltitis is really bad... Symptoms include losing perspective and Illusions of grandeur. Might also affects hair length.

Overexposure to Valentino's Syndrome also known sonofabiatchcosis can be fatal to Magicians.
