Familial mediterranean fever is genetic condition

DEAR DR. ROACH: After an intestinal virus, I ended up in the hospital with a sed rate of 110 and a high white blood count. I was feeling crippled with severe joint pain and was diagnosed with reactive arthritis. I was discharged with steroids and colchicine. I'm still taking the colchicine because my doctor said I have familial Mediterranean fever, and the colchicine is helping. I am a full-blooded Italian. She also said I have the HLA-B27 antigen. Two months later, my sed rate is back to normal, but I'll be taking colchicine for another month and then ...

Hillary won. America lost.

The narrative following Hillary's testimony at Congress' recent Benghazi hearing is clear: Hillary won. She (for the most part) calmly answered all the questions. She nodded approvingly when the Democrats on the committee accused Republicans of engaging in a partisan witch-hunt.

Reactive blood pressure causes treatment confusion

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am sensitive to blood pressure machines. Whether on my wrist, arm or leg, they hurt, and my blood pressure goes up. This has resulted recently in a dentist not wishing to extract a tooth because her machine measured my pressure at 190/98. A few years ago, prior to minor surgery, the machine got a similar result. They tried to inject me with something to bring it down, and it went down alarmingly low. During visits to my primary-care physician, my pressure is consistently around 138/82. An old-fashioned cuff is used, and is gently and ...

Dealing with barking dogs along fences

DEAR DIDI: I have had the Standard Poodle breed for 25+ years. Two of my three are UKC GRCH and they all have their AKC CGC's. When I purchased my property 10 years ago I had the back yard fenced with 6' high fencing. Not to keep my SPs in BUT other dogs out. Now my neighbors two grown children bring their dogs to run daily in their parent's non fenced in yard. One dog is aggressive & wants to fence fight! The other just runs on the outside of my fences barking and has caused my dogs to ...
