We already know that video games are to blame for strained thumbs ("Nintendinitis," as the medical world has dubbed it), sore shoulders ("Wiiitis," also a real medical term) and more than a few broken TVs (wear your Wiimote wrist straps, kids). But now one woman in Manchester, UK is claiming that her Wii Balance Board is to blame for her recent bizarre medical condition. Click through to find out what it is.

After taking a tumble off her WiiFit board, a 24-year-old Manchester resident is claiming that she's developed a clinical sexual addiction: "Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder."

Yep. You read that right. This woman managed to fall off a platform that's 3 inches off the ground and the fall shook her up enough to develop a doctor-diagnosed condition that's got her craving 10 sex sessions a day and getting turned on by vibrating cell phones and food processors.

Of course, this report is coming from a UK tabloid, The Daily Star, who loves to print sensational headlines like "Nintendo Wii Made me Nympho," so take it with a grain of salt.
