  • Esophageal Spasm

    Right sural nerve biopsy showed significantly decreased numbers of small myelinated fibers.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Esophageal motility disorders: medical therapy.

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    The concept of "structural plasticity" has emerged as a potential mechanism in neurodegenerative and psychiatric diseases such as drug abuse, depression, and dementia. Chronic alcoholism is a progressive neurodegenerative disease while the person continues to abuse alcohol, though clinical and imaging studies show[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Raynaud's Disease

    Diagnosis Your doctor will ask about your symptoms and medical history and conduct a physical examination. Your doctor might also run tests to rule out other medical problems that can cause similar signs and symptoms. Sorting out primary vs. secondary Raynaud's To distinguish between primary and secondary[…][mayoclinic.org]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    BACKGROUND: Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus is a serious metabolic disease that is often associated with vascular complications. There are 1.9 million people living with Diabetes in Ethiopia; diabetes mellitus is found to be the ninth leading cause of death related to its complications. Although the rate of vascular[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Depression

    A depression in geology is a landform sunken or depressed below the surrounding area. Depressions form by various mechanisms. Erosion-related: Blowout: a depression created by wind erosion typically in either a partially vegetated sand dune ecosystem or dry soils (such as a post-glacial loess environment). Glacial[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Stroke

    BACKGROUND: Impaired gait function after stroke contributes strongly to overall patient disability. Recently, sleep disturbance was reported to negatively affect functional recovery after stroke. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to identify the impact of sleep disturbance on balance and gait function in stroke[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
