Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 21, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon FRIDAY, JAN. 22 Your birthday today: The pursuit of several dream-like goals characterize your coming year. Dozens of incidents bring varied results, from minor disappointments tp triumph. You are likely to wind up in a position that doesn't yet exist; you may even take part in creating the spot. So build to suit your own unique LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Palu at right spot, time indicate ulcer Often you can make  diagnosis of a peptic ulcer from the symptoms it causes. When the symptoms are sufficiently characteristic, the ulcer is usually there even if it cannot be Men by x-ray studies. The most constant symptom of peptic ulcer is pain. It may be a burning ache, cramplike or gnawing pain. If the peptic ulcer is in the lower esophagus, the pain is at the lower end of the breastbone and may begin during eating or soon afterward. The pain from an ulcer in the stomach usually starts within an hour after eating. It is usual' ly just under the left rib margin and sometimes over the lower chest area. Duodenal ulcer pain commonly begins two to three hours after eating in a small area between the navel and the lower end of the breastbone. Rarely, an ulcer will cause back pain or if it involves a portion of the small intestine quite some distance from the stomach, the pain may be in the middle of the abdomen or even in the lower left abdomen. A peptic ulcer usually does not cause pain before breakfast. This more often is "burning" due to nervousness or anxiety. Ulcer pain frequently occurs at night - one to four hours after going to bed. If the pain is relieved by anUacid or food, it usually does not recur until after breakfast Pain at night usually means a severe ulcer or formation of large amounts of acid - pepsin digestive juice in the stomach. The ulcer patient soon learns that his discomfort can be relieved by food. While the stomach churns, the valves at the inlet and outlet of the stomach are closed, preventing acid-pepsin juice from spilling out over the ulcer. The acid stomach contents bathing exposed nerve endings in and around the ulcer cause pain. The typical ulcer patient eats when the pain op-cuts and if he is having pain at night, he eats or drinks milk for relief. Of course, antiacids relieve peptic ulcer pain. Baking soda (not good treatment) usually provides some relief. Some patients have a sensation of fullness in the pit of the stomach. Nausea and vomiting occur between meals but usually along with typical pain. Among atypical symptoms of a duodenal ulcer is the occasional patient with diarrhea. The patient has an overactive digestive tract and the ulcer is only part of the picture. Eventually, a careful analysis of the problem identifies pain in the typical location above the navel or adequate x-ray studies show an ulcer. ' It is true that an ulcer may not fit the "textbook" picture but most of them cause problems so much like those listed above that if you have these symptoms you can be fairly certain you have a peotic ulcer. *   Dear Dr. Lamb - Would an emphysema sufferer who has plants in the room all day find it harder to breathe because of the oxygen used by the plants? Would it be best to keep flowers out also? Dear Reader - Plants actually liberate oxygen. This is one reason ecologists have been so concerned about the loss of vegetation. The small number of plants that would be in a room, however won't have any effect on the oxygen in the air. The only way plants can cause difficulty in breathing is if the person is allergic to them. personality.

Integration effective Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Laurie Elliott, age 8, of Newport, Virginia, for her question: Do birds build new nests every year? There are wrens and robins, swallows and starlings and hundreds of other birds in the world. Each kind of bird has his own ideas about the family nest. It may last just a few weeks or many, many years. But one thing is certain. Birds are just about the best parents in the world. They insist that the family nest is safe and comfortable for the babies. If the parents decide to use last year's nest to raise a new brood, they mend and repair it so that it is as good as new. � *  Most birds use their nests just to cradle the eggs and the growing babies. When the youngsters leave home, the parents also go away - at least for a while. Sometimes they return later in the summer to raise another brood. The parents inspect the old nest carefully.
