Is it possible for Marfan syndrome to be caused by alcoholism?

What is uars (upper airway resistance syndrome)? Is it caused by allergies?

What is uars (upper airway resistance syndrome)? Is it caused by allergies?

Similar to "OSA": "osa" is obstructive sleep apnea.

Its a problem when the collapse causes a reduction in airflow, which your brain "sees" then wakes you up to open your airway. Its probably a less severe but similar form of sleep disorder than osa. ...Read more

Is it possible that somebody's drinking problems are caused by his shyness?

Is it possible that somebody's drinking problems are caused by his shyness?

Possible,,,unlikely: Shyness manifests in all sorts of ways, and people deal with it in many ways too, including drinking too much. However, blaming a chronic drinking problem on shyness probably misses the point.
