D/seose Puzzles Doctor; Doesn't Make Victim HI SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A strange nerve disease which seldom makes anyone ill but which holds plenty of mystery for medlcnl re- rcheis is reported, by Ur. Robert iVartenberg. neurologist of the University of California medical school. This ailment causes certain areas of the skin to have less than normal isitivity to pain or a dulling ot sense of touch. It often appears after infections such as grlpne or flu. It may affect just one small area of the body or many. It may eli : au- jiear in some areas and reappear in others. The significant thing about It, says Dr. Wartenberg in the Journal of the American Medical Association, is that it is "a definite disease, but nobody knows what causes it or exactly how to treat it. It is probably, says Dr. \Vartenberg, that nearly everyone gets it at one time or another.
