Often related: Try not to think of 'cause' as much as 'related'. These combined problems can be a good way to get people to seek help for overall better health. Harder to ignore when it spreads. Have a full exam and consider Tx that includes good psychotherapy too. It makes a BIG plus in results! Fell better soon w/ help.
