MEDICINE ON THE WAR FRONT IN WORLD WAR-1. There were many diseases and illnesses that formed throughout WW1. One new illness discovered during this time was Da Costa's Syndrome, which was also called Soldier's Heart. J.M. Costa described the condition as "strain or overreaction of the heart". Today, Da Costa's Syndrome is considered an anxiety disorder. Treatment for the issue is primarily behavioral, including modifications to one's lifestyle and everyday routine. Typhoid Fever was also a harmful disease during WW1. This fever was spread by ingestion of food or water contaminated by faecal matter. This disease was mainly seen in trench life and was mainly associated with poor hygiene and poor sanitation. Influenza was also a wide-spread virus that took over the world during the same time period as WW1.

Spanish Flu Symptoms The first wave of the 1918 pandemic occurred in the spring and was generally mild. The sick, who experienced such typical flu symptoms as chills, fever and fatigue, usually recovered after several days, and the number of reported deaths was low. However, a second, highly contagious wave of influenza appeared with a vengeance in the fall of that same year. Victims died within hours or days of developing symptoms, their skin turning blue and their lungs filling with fluid that caused them to suffocate. In just one year, 1918, the average life expectancy in America plummeted by a dozen years..
