Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta JL4 THE LETK8RIDQE HERALD Wednesday, February 20, 1974 Lawrence Lamb M.P. Dear Dr. Lamb Your article about bursitis prompts me to suggest something to your readers that I discovered several years ago by accident. I suffered from bursitis for many years. Extremely painful shoulders caused me to have to exercise each morning, but the exercise was painful and time-consuming. One cold night I wore a .sweatshirt to bed and discovered the next morning that my shoulders felt better than they had in years. Cool nights in the Southwest and cold winters in the East probably expose many people to situations similar to mine. People don't seem to realize that with the conventional blankets on our beds that our shoulders are frequently exposed to the night cold without our being aware that they are much colder than the rest of our bodies. My acquaintances often kid me about the habit I have developed of wearing a sweatshirt to bed, but I can assure you that it works very well to ward off aching shoulders. My condition had been diagnosed by a physician as bursitis, and I was told that the only thing to dp was to continue the exercises that were already a part of my daily routine. Dear Reader An excellent suggestion. Many readers have found that warm socks at night help prevent leg cramps. Cooling the muscles leads to muscle cramps and stiffness. I'm sure that a warm garment over the shoulders and neck could help a number of people. In this winter of fuel crises your suggestion is particularly welcome. Dear Dr. Lamb In reference to your column on the mother who was an alcoholic, my family was appalled that you made absolutely no mention of Alcoholics Anonymous. This organizations and its related group, help millions of families that haven't found the least bit of comforting advice in a psychiatrist's office. Alcoholism is an illness not a sign of severe problems. It might be to your advantage to become better informed about Alcoholics Anonymous and, if you see fit, in the future give more prudent and realistic advice to those in need of help! I, myself, am not a member of A.A. Dear Reader Don't get so excited! If you were a regular reader of my columns you would know that I have previously recommended both Alcoholics Anonymous and Al- Anon. The latter, as you know, is for the families of persons with an alcoholic problem. I think they are both fine organizations, and both serve a real need. Now, won't you admit you overstated your case a little bit? And, won't you consider that regardless of your own experience with alocholics, perhaps in your family, that not all such problems are alike. Alcohol is often part of a serious psychological problem needing psychiatric help. Individuals who have evidence of real psychological problems, as the mother in the case you asked about did, need professional help. Why try to downgrade either the psychiatrist or Alcoholics Anonymous. Both serve a useful purpose. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this newspaper, P.O.
