Twinkle Dwivedi - The Girl Who Cries Blood

Twinkle Dwivedi (born 1996) is a girl from Lucknow India, who gained world attention for allegedly presenting a rare condition that causes her to spontaneously bleed from her eyes and other parts of her body without presenting any visible wounds. Several times a day, she bleeds through the pores on her skin, eyes, nose, hairline, neck and the soles of her feet. 

She has been the subject of numerous medical research studies and TV shows such as BodyShock and a National Geographic documentary.

When Twinkle's case first appeared in the international media, many hurried to call her a fake, but after countless tests and procedures, including blood transfusions, doctors are still baffled by her strange bleeding. A group of medical specialists, led by dr. George Buchanan, recently traveled to North India to investigate the 14-year-old Twinkle, but all they have been able to say was that she really suffers from a condition we have never seen before.

The young teen remembers her disorder first appeared when she was just 11, and her classmates started mocking her and calling her disgusting. Although her bleeding didn't hurt at all, she felt scared and alone, because no one would come near her. At first she would cry when she saw her clothes soaked with blood, but now she just keeps quiet, and prays she will eventually get better.

Here's the video link for the National Geographic on this.
