Serious Dangers Bursitis Yields To Several Treatments By Peter J. Steincrohn, M.D. DEAR DR. STEINCROHN: Ow! Wow! My shoulder hurts like there are many little devils sticking tiny pitchforks into it. Yes, it's bursitis. What docs a girl do except take aspirin? -Mrs. V. COMMENT: A girl goes to the doctor! (My guess is you haven't gone. Any competent doctor will do more for bursitis than prescribing aspirin and wishing you good luck.) Thousands of bursitis sufferers will tell you that it doesn t always end simply and satisfactorily. The fire slowly spreads. It crackles and heats up for months. I don't know exactly how your bursitis affects you, Mrs. V, except that it is causing pain. In the typical case of severe hursitis of a shoulder, the pain soon begins to bedevil you like the proverbial toothache. You can't sleep or work; you can't read or eat. It's always there nagging you. The discomfort gets so bad that you can't raise your arm above your head. Then comes the well-known syndrome we call the "frozen joint." Pain has immobilized the shoulder. Rather than move it and suffer, the patient decides to render it useless. The alternative management is evident. If the small fire of bursitis doesn't go out in a few days with your own treatment (aspirin, heat, etc.) the time to call the doctor is early. We have many effective therapeutic methods to choose from. Any one 01 which may do the job and bring relief. Of course, the first objective is to make the correct diagnosis: to make certain it is due to inflammation of the small sac which lubricates the joint and to nothing else (arthritis, etc.). Then, depending upon the severity and location of the bursitis the doctor will choose his form of treatment. He may inject some cortisone derivative into the region of the inflamed bursa. Or, he may decide on a series of X-ray treatments which are sometimes effective when used eari- Or, he may use ultrasound therapy. Perhaps infrared tren ment used early in conjunction with moist-heat applications will do the trick. The main point I want to make is this, Mrs. V--as In many diseases, early, effective treatment of bursitis is the best defense against unnecessary weeks of suffering. DEAR DR. STEINCROHN: I have been short of breath for some months. But what has bothered me almost as much, is a cough f can't seem to get rid of. I've taken all kinds of cough medicines. The reason 1 haven't gone to a doctor yet is that I think the shortness of breath is due to my being overweight. But I can't understand the cough. I haven't had a cold. I'm not allergic. Why docs H hang on?--Mrs. F. Comment: You may be allergic and not know it. Or, have a lung infection. Not having been to a doctor, you can't be sure. You may be overlooking another reason, often unsuspected, for a chronic, stubborn cough: heart failure. I believe you deserve a complete physical (which includes X ray and electrocardiograms) to make sure your heart's all right. For when a heart begins to fail (i.e. "congestive heart failure") fluid gradually accumulates in the lungs. Barrels of cough mixtures would be incffeciual in such a case. The patient requires drugs like digitalis to strengthen the heart and diuretics to help remove excess fluid. When this is accomplished, the cough will disappear. Why not stop experimenting, Mrs. F? either in the Electoral College or in the House of Representatives." He added: "It is now time for ,, constitutional amendment to assure that mm of our most fun- ratlc duties-the process of choosing our president--will function as well Distributed by McNouom Syndicate, Inc. Attorney Genera Deputy Is Found Dead In SF Home SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) -Ronald Kearney, 30, a deputy state attorney general, was dis covered dead on a living room sofa in his apartment, police said. Coroner's officials said thej found several empty pill bottles in the bathroom. They ruled the death a suicide, pending a complete autopsy. His wife, Julie, called police earlier in the week to complain her husband threatened her and threatened to take his own life. She said she went to Sacramento to visit relatives. Police entered the apartment after a doctor said he was unable to contact Kearney by telephone !o check on his condition.
