Treatment available for pseudogout

DEAR DR. ROACH: In your recent column on pseudogout, you didn't discuss treatment. I had it earlier this year, and after a while it went away. It was very painful. Is there any medication to help it? -- D.B.

A sure cure for ‘affluenza’

In 2013, Americans learned about a new epidemic - affluenza. As psychologist G. Dick Miller explained the phenomenon, children of wealthy parents are taught not the golden rule but "we have the gold, we make the rules." The unsympathetic carrier of the affliction - Ethan Couch, Miller's client, then 16 - pleaded guilty in 2013 to manslaughter charges after he killed four innocent people in a drunken driving accident. Prosecutors recommended that Couch serve 20 years in prison. The sentencing judge said she was not moved by the "affluenza" defense, but nonetheless, she chose to sentence the son of privilege to 10 ...

Attack on American jobs

When I heard that the Omnibus spending bill that President Obama signed a week before Christmas includes a provision allowing more foreign guest workers, my first reaction was disbelief. We were repeatedly told by Republican leaders that the must-pass spending bill contained only what was absolutely necessary to pay our troops, bondholders and Social Security recipients, and we couldn't risk shutting down the government with provisions to defund Planned Parenthood or prohibit Obama's executive actions.

Drooping eyelid common after cataract surgery

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a 75-year-old woman who had successful cataract surgery two months ago. However, it left me with swollen eyelids and noticeable pouches under both eyes. My doctor advised that some people have a reaction like mine. I was told that the swelling should abate by six months. The healing was excellent, and I see fine, with the exception of the drooping eyelids. The seniors I know who had cataracts out and lenses in did not have a reaction like mine.

Bill wrote the book for Trump

After lamenting Donald Trump's "penchant for sexism" last week, Hillary Clinton announced to supporters that her former-president husband - her "not-so-secret weapon" -will be hitting the campaign trail for her in January. Characteristically, in all capital letters, Trump struck back on Twitter, where he observed Bill Clinton himself has "demonstrated a penchant for sexism." The it-only-hurts-when-you-laugh part about this tiff is that The Donald and Bubba have so much in common.
