However, a literature review by Galli et al indicated that both anxiety and depression may significantly contribute to the development of burning mouth syndrome

Dance Training 'Drastically' Reduces Parkinson's Progression, Eases Symptoms
Dancing helps slow the progression of motor and nonmotor symptoms and improves quality of life for patients with Parkinson's disease (PD), new research shows. Over 3 years, weekly participation in dance training classes "drastically" reduced the expected decline in motor function and significantly improved speech, tremors, balance, and stiffness, the researchers report. Dance training also appeared to have benefits regarding cognition, hallucinations, depression, and anxiety.
RE: Common Eye Disorder in Children Tied to Mental Illness
@anup Strabismus, a condition in which the eyes don't line up or are "crossed" is one of the most common eye diseases in children, with some estimates suggesting it affects more than 1.5 million American youth. Patients with strabismus have problems making eye contact and are affected socially and functionally. They're often met with a negative bias, as shown by childrens' responses to pictures of faces with and without strabismus. There is a signal from previous research suggesting that strabismus is linked to a higher risk of mental illness. However, most of these studies were small and had relatively homogenous populations
Prognosis of Avoidant-Restrictive Food Intake Disorder?
Avoidant-restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID) is a persistent feeding or eating disturbance manifested by avoidance of food or restrictive food intake that is not caused by food scarcity, cultural or religious practices, or some other psychological or medical disorder. It results in significant weight loss or nutritional deficiency, dependence on tube feeding or nutritional supplements, and/or impairment in psychosocial functioning. Unlike anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa, ARFID is not characterized by a preoccupation with body shape and weight or by intentional weight loss behaviors. Instead, patients suffering from ARFID may be disinterested in food and eating, or may avoid foods because of a negative response to their color, texture, smell, taste or temperature. Individuals may also excessively fear unpleasant consequences of eating such as choking, gagging or vomiting (functional dysphagia) or exacerbated gastroesophageal reflux symptoms.
