Signs and symptoms
Symptoms of Schultheiss' Syndrome commonly become noticeable between the ages of 5 and 7, but they can begin at any age in early childhood. In the early stages, there are subtle changes in personality, cognition, and physical skills, which progress slowly over the course of 12-18 months in conjunction with the strength of fielding ability. Almost everyone with Schultheiss Syndrome eventually exhibits similar physical symptoms, but the onset, progression and extent of cognitive and behavioral symptoms can vary between individuals.
Schultheiss Syndrome is characterized by a long-term risk of recurrent seizures. Most seizures are characterized by the individual as beginning with a strong headaches, which progresses to an overwhelming sense of "buzzing" in the affected person's perception. Individuals affected often remain conscious during seizures, but are unable to act independently.
The seizure threshold can be altered by fatigue, malnutrition, lack of sleep or rest, hypertension, stress, rapid motion or flight, blood sugar imbalances, anxiety, antihistamines and other factors.
Schultheiss is a recessive genetic disorder which affects under 3% of the Laudean population. Individuals with blue shading on their skin experience symptoms at a slightly higher rate, while individuals descending from noble lines experience symptoms at an even higher rate.
