DEAR DR. GOTT: I'm at my wit's end. I have angina, acid reflux, esophagitis and some chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. My problem is that I have very severe burning sensations in my chest, neck, back, face and sometimes my arms. My gastroenterologist thinks the burning in the areas outside of the chest is caused by anxiety. My general practitioner, who is an endocrinologist, says it has nothing to do with my glands. He thinks it could be caused by a drug interaction. I currently take seven medicines for my various problems.

Have you ever seen spots in front of your eyes? Perhaps it happened when your photograph was taken using a flash. Or, at the bridge table, maybe you held an array of noncourt cards. One of the key skills of a bridge expert is making maximum use of his spot-cards. This deal is an excellent example. South was in four spades. West led the diamond three. South, hoping the lead was away from the queen, called for dummy's jack, then took East's queen with his ace. How did South continue?
PORTAL - A late Portal rally was not enough to overcome a five-run sixth inning by Metter as the Panthers fell to the Tigers by a score of 10-6 in Portal on Wednesday night.

DEAR ABBY: I have enjoyed the columns you've printed about people whose names matched their professions, and wonder if you would be interested in an incident that happened to my sister. Her name is Dragony, and she works in a pharmacy located in a medical building. Her license plate reads DRAGONY. Well, someone went into the pharmacy and asked the girl at the counter, "Who is Dr. Agony?" I still laugh when I think about it. -- KATHI IN CALIFORNIA
