DEAR DR. GOTT: I am a healthy 5-foot-tall, 100-pound, 63-year-old woman. My blood pressure is normal. I eat healthy and generally exercise two to three times per week. My cholesterol is 265, HDL 76, LDL 171 and triglycerides 88. The last time I had it taken was five years ago, and the total was 231 with an LDL of 139.

I have been reading about niacin and was going to start taking it, but I am ...

DEAR DR. GOTT: I am a 61-year-old woman who has always been in good health. About three months ago, I noticed my left arm felt different than normal. There was a kind of tingling feeling that ran from my palm up the underside of the arm to my shoulder. It almost feels like a sunburn. I have been to my doctor, who had me get an MRI and blood work. Nobody can find anything wrong. At first the sensation came and went. Now it seems to be constant. Should I be concerned about this?
At times, I enjoy the computer because there is so much information accessible at the touch of a button. I remember asking a student to type in the word cuneiform to see what she could find.

Over the last two decades, cell phones have gone from an expensive (and bulky!) luxury to an absolute necessity - the latter definition, of course, coming from your kids. But the way society is moving, it's becoming more and more difficult to deny that fact. Parents want their kids to have a way to call home in case of an emergency. Kids want to be able to be in contact with their friends.
As a marriage counselor, I see all sorts of couples in my office. They come to me with problems ranging from infidelity to not putting the cap back on the toothpaste. When they decide to go to marriage counseling, most couples have decided that their problems are so big that they need to get it sorted out - or else. However, there are a lot of problems couples have that aren't really problems at all. They're small enough that it's not really worth the argument.
