Ask Dr. Gott 10/28

DEAR DR. GOTT: My mother is 82 years young and has no medical problems that need medication. She takes very good care of herself, better than a lot of her children do. She walks and is very careful that the types of food she prepares are healthful: lots of vegetables and fresh fruit.

Dear Abby 10/28

DEAR ABBY: I am writing to you as a last resort. I have been married for 13 years to a man who does not communicate, to say the least. I have begged, pleaded, fought and waited for him to talk about something other than his children.

Dear Abby 10/27

DEAR ABBY: I am extremely shaken by a recent experience, and I want to share this with other parents who may one day find themselves in a similar situation. My daughter, "Mary," is almost 18 and in the 12th grade. We have always had a close relationship. She has always come to me to talk about what's going on in her life -- friends, crushes, school, just about everything.

Ask Dr. Gott 10/27

DEAR DR. GOTT: A couple of years ago, I was diagnosed with tennis elbow in both arms. The doctor said there isn't a fix for it, so he gave me anti-inflammatories. The pain has now gotten so bad that it hurts to do simple things like brush my teeth and type this letter. What can I do? It seems to be getting worse every day.

DEAR DR. GOTT: I am 51 years old, healthy, eat correctly, exercise and am not overweight. I work retail and am on my feet for many hours of the day. I do not take any medication. But I do have one problem. I can't wear any socks without leaving a deep impression on my legs. My feet tend to swell and sometimes even feel like they are burning.

Ask Dr. Gott 10/26

DEAR DR. GOTT: My mother is 80 years old and was diagnosed with congestive heart failure about two years ago. In November, her left leg started to swell and is still swollen after 14 trips to the doctor. It is so bad that the lymph fluid is oozing through her pores into her socks. Her shoes don't fit. She does not have diabetes. Her main doctor, an internal-medicine specialist, has referred us to a dermatologist with no results. She has had a deep-vein-and-artery scan.
