Thoracic aortic aneurysm is weakening and/or bulging in the upper part of the aorta, the major blood vessel that branches off from the heart and carries blood to the body. Caused by high blood pressure (hypertension), connective tissue disorders and genetics, the aneurysm can rupture (dissection), causing a life-threatening emergency.

The thyroid is a gland at the base of the neck that produces hormones that control the body’s metabolism (rate it uses energy). There are two types of thyroid disease and many different causes. Hyperthyroidism means the thyroid makes too much hormone, and symptoms include irritability/nervousness and weight loss. Hypothyroidism happens when there is not enough hormone produced, with symptoms including fatigue and weight gain.

Tics and twitches are spasm-like movements of particular muscles that often affect the face or eyelids but can occur anywhere in the body. While typically harmless and temporary, they may be caused by a tic disorder. The two types of tics – motor tics and vocal tics – occur suddenly and are often repetitive. Twitches differ from tics in that they are isolated occurrences and not repeated actions. These disorders can generally be managed with a combination of treatment and lifestyle changes.

Tics are sudden, uncontrolled movements or sounds, and are often associated with Tourette’s syndrome. Simple tics involve a only a few muscle groups, like exaggerated eye blinking, while complex motor tics involve more muscle groups, like touching oneself or another person repeatedly or head banging. Tics are thought to be genetic (passed down from parents).
