Woman ages 50 years in a few days

A 23-year-old Vietnamese woman developed the appearance of a 73-year-old in a matter of days.

Now 26, Nguyen Thi Phuong had been an otherwise healthy young woman until 2008 when she suddenly started to suffer from sagging skin and a puffy face. Before long she looked like a woman in her 70's, but couldn't afford to seek medical treatment. Doctors have offered to examine her free of charge in an effort to get to the bottom of her mysterious condition.

"Doctors say it may have been the long-term use of traditional medicines that caused the condition as they are often spiked with corticoids."

No Way Some People Will Do Anything To Sell A Story

Mcgavin, my first thought was also: "methamphetamine will **** you up!" It's a strange story though, I must say. I don't know if meth is all that common in those parts. I'd doubt it, anyway. Strange, just strange, unless outright hoaxed.

I don't know if this story is fake or not. But if it isn't, I sure hope the doctors can figure out what the problem is and do something about it. Hoprfully they'll be able to reverse the process of the disease.

My first thought was a memory of a news broadcast I watched about an extremely potent form of methamphetamine that is commonly used in thailand called ya ba. Thailand is close to vietnam, and I bet it is used there as well. If it ain't the dope then I bet it's a hoax.

I saw a video story of this over the weekend somewhere on the net (darn if I can remember which site though). It sounded like it was narrated by a college age girl and sounded unprofessional. I wish I could find that video and have someone translate the language in the background to see what they were really saying under the narration. To me it was like someone had taken random footage of this village and made the whole thing up. I'm calling shenanigans on this one.

Both of them say they "can't remember" what medicine she took or where it came from. I don't really accept this story.

Not information to even begin to entertain a diagnosis, in my opinion. Between the poor journalism on the story and the cultural and language barriers, there is no telling what is true about this and what isn't. So sorry 27Vet, no opinion without more relevant information, as it is right now I would take the whole thing with a grain of salt
