Patient discussion about duplication

Q. what is the cause for double vision

A. Double vision, or diplopia, as it's called, may be due to many conditions, including disorders of the muscles of the eye (extra-ocular muscles) and the nerves controlling them, disorders of the eye ball (enlarged eyeball as in Graves' ), and sometimes disorders of vision.

Diplopia may manifest important conditions, so consulting a doctor (e.g. neurologist or ophthalmologist) may be wise.

Q. I have fibromyalgia and am having terrible vision problems...double, blurred, feel off blance.Is this common?

A. Blurry vision is not a usual symptom in fibromyalgia. If you are experiencing this on a permenant basis you should see a doctor- either a neurologist or an ophthalmologist to rule out other vision conditions that might be causing this.

Because the superfamily's conserved genes are also heavily duplicated within a given species, they provide an excellent system for examining how species, given the basic building blocks of the gene family, copy and rearrange the genes and thereby accumulate a set of enzymes appropriate for their own needs.
Suspending the loss: If a group member recognizes a loss on the disposition of a subsidiary's stock after application of the BRR, and the subsidiary member remains in the group after the disposition, the stock loss is suspended under the LSR to the extent of the duplicated loss on the subsidiary's stock.
