I have a chronic dull ache around the left side of my breastbone, which sometimes radiates to my shoulder. What could cause this, and what treatment would you recommend? There are many causes of chronic chest pain. Two of the most common are costochondritis (inflammation of the cartilage attaching the ribs to the sternum or breastbone) and intercostal myalgia (an irritation of the muscles between the ribs). These diagnoses are often difficult to establish because the pains are vague and there are no confirming lab tests.

Defense lawyers produced computer-enhanced photographs yesterday purporting to show the word "Bryan" carved in script less than a half-inch long on Myla Friedman's chest. The defense contends the word was carved by a knife-wielding Bryan Edwards during a life-and-death struggle that led to Edwards' being shot to death. The bizarre twist in Friedman's murder trial came hours before defense attorneys Dennis Cogan and Norris Gelman rested their case after a 3 1/2-week trial before Common Pleas Judge Juanita Kidd Stout, who is hearing the case without a jury.

If you have a few thousand burning a hole in your pocket and you love auctions, you have two items next week on which to bid: a walnut chest of drawers that belonged to an early governor of Delaware and a 50-year-old first edition of Whiz Comics. The winning bids for the two pieces are expected to be about the same - anywhere from $18,000 to $25,000. The chest of drawers will be offered by Pook & Pook Inc., next Saturday at the second session of a two-day sale at the Ludwig's Corner Fire Company social hall.

Whenever the names Whitney, Rockefeller or Vanderbilt appear in an ad for an estate sale, it is worth checking out. The Elizabeth Whitney Tippett estate sale held at Weschler's in Washington last month was a good example. At first glance the sale appeared to be a typical auction of the contents of a country house. But among the American and English furniture, the silver, the English sporting pictures, Staffordshire figures, gold hunting trophies - and a tribe of weathered cigar-store Indians - was a very rare Pennsylvania painted chest of drawers.

Yes, Dolly Parton says, she has had plastic surgery - "nips and tucks and trims and sucks . . . eyes and chin and back again. " And there's more where that came from in Parton's new autobiography, "Dolly: My Life and Other Unfinished Business. " "It is not only a right but an obligation for a woman, especially a woman in the public eye, to look as good as she can. It's like keeping up a racehorse or a show dog. " So yes, Parton says, she has had her breasts done, too. "I said, 'Do whatever you have to do to make 'em firm, make 'em stand up. "'

A 57-year-old man came to see me complaining of increasingly severe shortness of breath over the last year and a half. It was worse with exertion and got better with rest, although it never went away completely. He did get a bit short of breath when he tried to lie flat in bed. He had never smoked, he wasn't coughing, he had never had symptoms of asthma before. He did have obstructive sleep apnea and was religiously using his CPAP - a machine that exerts slight airway pressure through a face mask to prevent throat obstructions that interrupt breathing at night.

It was spring in Pennsylvania, and I was seeing a 31-year-old man for the first time. He'd been sick for about three days with headaches, chills, and fever, although his temperature was normal in the office. He had not had any recent travel, and no one else was sick at home or at work. The only significant part of his medical history was migraine headaches, and the ones he was having were doozies. Light hurt his eyes; sound hurt his ears. The only thing that helped his throbbing headaches was ibuprofen, but he had been taking more of it with less relief.

Millions of Americans suffer from recurring chest pain that is hard to explain and treat because it is not caused by their hearts. They often undergo extensive testing and end up on drugs for acid reflux, depression, or even lung disease. But only about 40 percent of noncardiac chest-pain patients respond to these drugs. And most still have painful symptoms, said Temple University gastroenterol-ogist Ron Schey. Now, he may have found a novel way to treat some of them: dronabinol, a synthetic form of marijuana.

THE SCREAMS drew Santee Weddington to his bedroom window, but nothing could have prepared him for the scene that was playing out on the streets below. A driverless Chevrolet Impala rolled across the intersection of 20th Street and Nedro Avenue shortly after midnight yesterday, then came to a stop on the sidewalk in front of the mustard-yellow walls of Jhonny's Food Market. Weddington said he stared in disbelief at the passenger seat, which held the limp, bullet-riddled body of Jasmine Williams, who was eight months' pregnant.

Katie Hayek had rushed from Philadelphia to New York, and made it to the set just in time to prepare for the day's shooting of The Following. It was February 2013 and Hayek, an aspiring actress, had scored a small role in the television series about an uber-violent, but highly, literate cult. "Too many tanning beds?" the hair and makeup artist asked, noticing the pocked trail of blisters across Hayek's scorched chest. Hayek laughed. "Let me tell you about that tanning bed.

He also didn't know that he had brought a knife to a gunfight. And he ended up in the morgue with a bullet in his chest from Doyle's .38-caliber revolver, according to police.
