DEAR DR. GOTT: I am a 15-year-old-male. Lately, I have been suffering from a variety of weird symptoms that include prolonged hot flashes, lightheadedness, blurry vision, sore muscles and faintness. These symptoms have been going on for a while now, and, frankly, they have become so bad I can barely function when I'm at work or school. I have informed my parents about this but, unfortunately, they are too docile and mild-mannered to take the "exaggerated" step to actually go to the doctor about it.
DEAR ABBY: I gave birth to my fourth child a few months ago. (My oldest is 5.) I am now being pressured by my in-laws, who live in another state, to visit. They expect me to pack up the six of us and drive three hours to a house that is not child-friendly.
