Researchers say chronic dizziness can result from, or trigger, psychiatric disorders
(American Osteopathic Association) Dizziness can fall into a number of broad categories, including vertigo (spinning sensation), presyncope (near-fainting), and disequilibrium (imbalance). When a patient's description of symptoms appears consistent with one of these categories, physicians are better equipped to make an accurate diagnosis. Patients who have a difficult time describing their symptoms, or seem to experience several different symptoms, are likely experiencing non-specific dizziness -- which should be a cue for physicians to ask about the patient's mental health.

What Are the Clinical Symptoms Associated with Friedreich Ataxia?
Discussion Friedreich ataxia (FRDA) was first extensively described in a series of papers from 1863-1877 by Nikolaus Friedreich at the University of Heidelberg, Germany. In 1996 the genetic mutation was described. It is an autosomal recessively inherited, homologous expansion of the GAA repeat in intron 1 of the frataxin gene on chromosome 9q13. It causes a transcription error leading to a decrease in frataxin which is a mitochondrial protein involved in iron metabolism and other cell functions. Frataxin is seen mainly in the central and peripheral nervous systems, heart, pancreas and skeleton. Frataxin is produced but in ...

What Are Options for Acne Treatment?
Discussion Acne vulgaris or acne is a problem of the pilosebaceous follicle. It occurs most prominently where sebaceous glands are abundant especially the face, neck, and upper back. Sebum production increases because of androgens. Keratin and sebum clog the pores of the pilosebaceous unit causing hyperkeratosis (clogged pilosebaceous unit = clogged pores = comedomes). Propionibacterium acnes, a gram-negative anaerobe, multiplies in the sebaceous unit causing an inflammatory reaction resulting in moderate or severe acne. Skin lesions include: Comedomal acne has comedomes White heads = closed comedomes Black heads = open...
