Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, September LETHBRIDGE Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb Would you give me your views on "histamine perhaps better known as "Morton's Over a seven year period I have been to countless doctors and received as many different type treatment' I am seized bv this condition for six weeks at a time. The, headaches usually last for 15 to 20 minutes and are very ex- cruciating. Sleep precipitates them about half the time. The pain is always on the right side of my head from behind' my eye to the back of my neck. The condition will not tolerate alcohol in any form. Every doctor I have visited had no idea of the cause or the treatment for this problem. Three years ago I did see an allergist who was familiar with the ailment. He gave me histamine injections, and the treatment made it possible to have a two year vacation from these headaches. Now I am in one of the six week seizure periods. Do you have any explanation for this con- dition, and are you aware of any other treatment or cure? Dear Reader These headaches are pretty much as you have described them. Often they affect the nose and cause a lot of watering from the nose and eye. They can affect either the right or left side of the head at different times in the same patient. Alcohol is known to make the condition worse during episodes of these attacks. In between the clusters of at- tacks it has no affect. Note the term "cluster." These are often called cluster headaches because the at- tacks come in clusters for a few weeks and then may not recur for months or even years. This characteristic of them makes it very difficult for the doctor or the patient to evaluate various treatments. You could have a sudden, spontaneous, free period. It's just possible that this was the reason for your two year vacation from headaches rather than the histamine in- jections. No one knows under these circumstances. These headaches are con- sidered by most authorities to- day as a variation of "migraine headaches." And the treatment is essentially the same as that used for migraines. This sometimes leaves something to be desired. The approach to these headaches has changed as they have become better un-ierstood. As you know, they have been described only a tew years ago, and an ex- perience factor has been necessary for better under- standing. A number of medicines are now used to treat and to pre- vent these problems. The idea of histamine injections has fallen by the wayside. Only a few think they really help, and most neurologists think there are better medicines now. One of these to prevent attacks is Inderal Just as in typical migraine headaches, the person's life style and situations need to be explored. People with migraine headaches tend to be over achievers and literally drive themselves emotionally and intellectually to the point that the headache occurs. Sometimes learning to un- derstand one's own emotional dynamics and being able to do something about them helps a great deal in people with migraine and also cluster headaches.

Your horoscope TUESDAY, SEPT. 10 Your birthday today: Finds swift tides of destiny sweeping you through .rich and varied opportunities for inner change, spiritual growth. Make the most of every minute, pray for understanding. Material pursuits abound; relationships are variable and active. Today's natives are willing to work long and hard when convinced they have a fair chance. ARIES (March 21-April Work proceeds normally while affairs at home are complex, less smoothly organized. Causes are not readily amenable to correction, require love and patience. TAURUS (April 20-May Double-check your facts today. Do what you've planned to, even though you'd rather pursue emotional experience. Romance thrives, despite complications. GEMINI (May 21-June Yesterday's tendencies continue in family and local events. You encounter requests for larger sums than anticipated. Cut back spending. CANCER (June 21-July Close relatives agree on projects. A range of opinions offered by many people limits your freedom in doing something. LEO (July 23-Aug A confidential inquiry you once carried out over a considerable period now bears results. You see matters in perspective and in conflict with the view of many people. VIRGO (Aug 23-Sept Previous secrets now surface. Don't make promises or take on fresh obligations. Spend time with an old hobby, preferably alone. LIBRA (Sept 23-Oct Even with unexpected help, you're impatient for returns from your effort. Be tolerant and be tactful in your comments. Look for the reasons why in later hours. SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov Friends and sentiment offer pleasant diversion. You are occupied with health care matters. Keep travel to a minimum. Communications aren't as clear as you'd like. Patience! SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec The less you speculate and the fewer moves you make, the better. Proceed with your own proven routines and stay out of the schemes of friends. CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan You discover later that today's information is unavoidably incomplete, perhaps misleading. Associates are difficult or competitive. AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb Economize where possible. Organize work to avoid haste and fatigue. People away from you at present are likely to attend to their own concerns, rather than yours. PISCES (Feb 19-Marcb Emotional affairs proceed well while material concerns require care, deliberate choices. Leave savings and reserves where they are.

TROUT Andy sends a complete 20 volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Valerie Barrows, age 11, of Foremost, Alberta, Canada for her question: What is the life story of the trout fish? The twenty or so different trouts are very handsome, meaty fishes. When you try to catch one for the first time, you soon learn that the big ones are smart enough to dodge your hook. And, when they chance to get caught, some are strong enough to break free. Of course, it's not fair to take the little fellows. And the biggies have spent several years learning to keep out of trouble. Sometimes mankind changes their life stor- ies. But when left to themselves, the various trout fishes return to breed in the very place where they hatched. Usually this is a gently flowing stream of clean, clear water. For neither the trouts nor their eggs can survive where the water is murky or polluted. The males are ready to breed at the age of two, the females are a year older. Then, year after year they return to their ancestoral home ground. The female selects a site and swishes her strong tail to dig a hollow, which is called a redd. There she lays her batch of eggs, which may be 150 to Then the male swims over the eggs and fertilizes them. The breeding season is early spring and sometimes also in the fall. The spring brood hatches in about three weeks, the fall brood may wait 200 days. The hatchings are called fry, or alevins. They are a half an inch to one inch long and all have huge, bulging tummies. Actually the bulges are egg sacs which nourish the fry for a month or so. Then the famished little fishes leave their nest and feed on scraps of floating plankton. They learn to catcl mosquito larva and other aquatic insects. Soon they become pretty little speckleo' fishes called fingerlings. But life is very hazardous. During their first three months, about 94 percent of them are devoured by otters, herons and larger fishes which may be adult trout. Through his first summer, a famished fingerling grows two and a half inches or more. Meantime he ventures farther down stream toward the deeper, wider waters of a river or maybe a lake. If he happens to be a sea trout, he sets out toward a voyage through the ocean. Next summer, our young trout will grow five inches and the following year perhaps eight inches or more. Meantime most of the original brood has become food for other creatures. And our iucky survivor has become very wise about dodg- ing his enemies including small fishermen. He now gulps larger portions, such as shrimps and small fishes and now and then he leaps up to catch a flying insect. Come winter, a trout stops feeding and rests for a while. bf cMN- of Herald malted to Aafc Andy, P.O. Box. 715, Huntlngton Baach, (CopyvfftM PUMaMno, Co. 1t73) MY STOMACH FEELS KIND OF FUNNV...
