Q. What causes fibromyalgia? Is fibromyalgia a deadly disease?

A. The causes of fibromyalgia are not known. But there are many theories such as abnormalities in brain chemicals, infections, trauma, genetics and hormonal changes. Factors such as poor sleep, fatigue, overexertion and anxiety, may aggravate the symptoms. Fibromyalgia is not a progressive or life-threatening condition, but it affects quality of life. Fibromyalgia is only a disorder of muscles and not a disease.

Q. Is that true that mouth sores are caused by lack of vitamins? I’ve been having white mouth sores in the past 6 months or so. Could that mean I have to take vitamin supplements?

We further hypothesized that, after controlling for the demographic variables and college experiences, intrinsic motivations and extrinsic motivations that have an internal perceived locus of causality (i.e., identification and integration motivations) would be positively associated with students' interest in service post-graduation.
A regression model was tested using the four CDS-II dimensions (locus of causality, stability, personal control, and external control) for the two performance outcomes (positive v negative) to predict slump susceptibility (frequency of prior unexplained slumps).
The second category of fluctuating motivational factors is the perceived locus of causality (Ryan & Deci, 2000).
The CDS II consists of a 12 questions, which make up 4 scales, with three items per scale, which evaluated the attributional dimensions of (1) locus of causality, (2) external control, (3) stability, and (4) personal control.
Table 1 presents the aggregated results for the coding of effects and their respective locus of causality. The null hypothesis predicts no association between the coding of effects and the locus of causality.
This allowed respondents to classify their attributions according to the dimensions of locus of causality (LOC), stability, and controllability.
The present study found that students' causal attributions for exam performance tended to be controllable by the student, with locus of causality being within the student while the degree to which the student believed the cause to be stable varied across students.
Our choice, then, is to concentrate our efforts on the relationships between entrepreneurial behavior and (a) locus of causality (internal/ external) or (b) stability of causality (stable/variable).
After indicating the most likely cause, students responded to questions about locus of causality and controllability.|19~ A distinction was made between personal controllability and controllability by others.|20~
