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?

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
