Q: 

Extreme Chest Pain (left side) and Left Arm Tightness

A: Hello - First, thanks for your detailed and comprehensive post. While there are things in it that would naturally be suggestive of a heart problem, that seems to have been ruled out -- for now. Since you have a history of elevated cholesterol and a family history of early heart disease, I would suggest you restart the Lipitor at once, as that is one of several things you have working in your favor (your lipid reduction was typically dramatic, and that''s how you want it to stay). As for the symptoms, they are somewhat different from most panic attacks in that they mimic more accurately a "real" heart attack -- almost to a fault, actually. The fact that the pain is felt over your left chest would lessen...

Q: 

Signs of abuse

A: Hi Jennifer, Your husband knows he has a problem with alcohol.  People who do not have a problem do not feel a need to hide their use.  Look at it this way--who is going to pretend to not eat the donut, the person having the problem with obesity or the skinny person?   There are two categories of alcoholics--those who are abusers and those who are dependent.  The abusers are the ones who go on binges and the dependents (I was one) are those who do "maintenance" drinking.  We drink every day and often dont show the effects of our large consumption to those around us.  In other words, we drink a lot--an awful lot, but we
