Pneumothorax:

occurs when air enters the chest through a small hole, resulting in the collapse of one lung or a part thereof. One of the serious symptoms is that the patient becomes breathless.

Polyneuropathy:

is a disease of a nerve in which many nerve fibres are affected at the same time, such as can occur in diabetes. As well as numbness, pain in the legs and arms can also occur.
