Already dealing with several injury-related roster questions, the Orioles played Wednesday night without second baseman Brian Roberts , who has been experiencing headaches since his headfirst slide to lead off Monday's game in Boston. Roberts was scheduled to see team doctors before Wednesday's game to determine the cause of his latest health issue. The Orioles will proceed with caution; he missed the final six games of the 2010 season because of headaches "Let the doctors put their arms around it," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

I got about halfway through Comcast's recent letter to the editor and then it started to sound like "small print" and I lost track of what was being said ( "Comcast provides competitive services in Baltimore," July 9). What was that gobbledygook? This is an example of Comcast's service. Sometime ago I complained about having to pay for extra boxes that originally were promoted as free, smaller than the free government boxes and providing more channels. Using the small box that I paid for I could always get limited basic service that included CNN. That ended with my most recent renewal of service.

Two national surveys -- one on hope, one on headaches -- raise some intriguing possibilities. One survey, carried out by researchers at the University of Kansas, found that hope plays a surprisingly large role in helping people succeed in school, on their jobs and in coping with tragic illness. The second, by doctors at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, found that, contrary to popular belief, migraine headaches plague the poor more than the rich.Both studies were the largest of their kind ever undertaken.

Much like its English language counterpart, the White House's Spanish-language health care website, CuidadoDeSalud.gov, has been filled with technical issues, mistranslations and links to English-only pages and forms since its launch. It's a laughing stock, but the joke is on Hispanics and Latinos like myself. Beyond the faulty launch of the federal website, the Affordable Care Act penalizes the Hispanic-American community in Maryland in several serious ways. The end result that a law that was supposed to help us actually makes affordable and quality health care even harder to find.

Editor: I'm not surprised to have read in The Aegis of July 12 that another attempt is being made to incorporate the Town of Edgewood. I am sure the town 's citizens don't want to take on more taxes an fees that come along with an incorporation, such raising taxes for town police and fire departments, neither of which will solve the problems that plague Edgewood. Those taxes and fees, however, would heavily burden the town's people, who already suffer under the weight of too many taxes passed by the Democrats in Annapolis in the last seven years.

Q: I suffer from severe headaches. I went to the eye doctor and he gave me some glasses but I still get the headaches. What could be causing them?A: Without knowing more about you and the kind of headaches that you're having, it's hard for us to give you a lot of information about what could be causing them. However, we do wish to point out that headaches are extremely common among teen-agers. In one study done in Maryland, approximately 65 percent of teen-agers indicated they had experienced a headache in the past four weeks.

Q.We were glad to see your article about hot, spicy soup for headaches. My husband has been plagued with headaches from an early age. Using hot salsa with chips at the onset of a headache has definitely stopped two headaches! I am attempting to find capsaicin in another form. The health food store has cayenne pepper capsules that contain capsaicin. Do you think they would help? A.The people who have shared their experience with fast relief have used hot and spicy soups. Capsaicin gives hot peppers their kick, and we suspect this is responsible for the pain relief.

Q. I have a problem that my doctor and neurologist can't help me with. I am hoping you can give me a hint as to what to do.Whenever I strain in heavy lifting or in hanky-panky (don't laugh), I get severe, pounding headaches lasting five to 15 minutes. I am incapacitated by them. My neurologist says they are "benign sex headaches" caused by my blood pressure going high, but I'm on Accupril for hypertension. Do you have any ideas?A. Two kinds of headache are associated with sexual activity and exertion.

Parents, headaches don't bypass the young. By the time most children -- 75 percent, by some estimates -- reach 15 years of age they've experienced all sorts of headaches. Experts say young people's headaches should not be dismissed ("You're too young to have headaches") or dramatized ("My God, a brain tumor!"). Parents need to be alert to symptoms that might accompany headaches -- pain, nausea, vomiting, dizziness -- but understand that for the most part, headaches are a fact of young life.

To save money, U.S. airlines are circulating less fresh air into the cabins of many airplanes. As a result, flight attendants and some passengers have begun to complain of headaches, nausea and other health problems, especially after long flights.The reduction of fresh air is done only on newer planes. Older aircraft built before the mid-1980s provided cabins with 100 percent fresh air that was circulated every three minutes.But the newer models provide half fresh air and half recirculated air that is freshened every six or seven minutes or longer.

I am glad that Gov. Martin O'Malley has announced that the Maryland health exchange is working ( "O'Malley says major health exchange problems are fixed," Dec. 15). Now what I need is another announcement from him saying that the application filed for my sister-in-law in assisted living has been completed after 10 weeks of trying. However, such an announcement is not possible because, after 31 cumulative hours waiting for or talking to nine Maryland Health Connection reps and three supervisors, three lost faxes, three MHC promised call backs that never happened and 62 website attempts to set up an account, sign in or access on-line information, the entire process is now stalled because, I'm informed, "the system hasn't linked all the information for final approval of the application.

Baltimore brewers waiting for the government's approval of a new seasonal ale or the OK on new labels will have to wait until the federal shutdown is over. The Alcohol Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, which lies within the Department of the Treasury, has been closed for business since most government workers have been furloughed. For Hugh Sisson, owner of Heavy Seas Beer in Halethorpe, the shutdown's timing has postponed the implementation of a new $3 million piece of equipment that packages and labels the beer.

"You follow me, kid?" An old friend of mine, educated at Hotchkiss and Haverford, used to ask that all the time, sometimes after every two sentences, like when he showed me how to make a martini or how to work the clutch in a '74 Fiat or when he tried to explain what arbitrage was. He had a head for cocktails, cars and finance, and he talked real fast, with a cigarette on his lip. He'd start explaining something complex, like bond trading, and stop...

A blizzard was expected to dump a couple of feet of snow across New England through midday today, and while Baltimore was largely spared, the storm delivered some wintry precipitation and headaches for travelers. At Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, dozens of flights to and from the Northeast were canceled, leaving some travelers scrambling to brave snowy roads in rental cars. Others landed there Friday from points north, escaping ahead of the expected 2 feet of snow, only to find limited options for getting anywhere else.

Organizers of the Grand Prix of Baltimore are working hard to avoid traffic delays as they begin the construction of the street course for the Labor Day weekend racing event in the city. A year ago, a series of road closures snarled traffic, disrupted downtown business operations and ignited tempers of residents and workers in Baltimore. Monday, at the official placing of the first ceremonial concrete block at the intersection of Pratt and Light streets, general manager Tim Mayer said the organization is planning the construction in order to avoid a repeat this year.

Like any incumbent, Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. is running for re-election emphasizing what he's accomplished in office. "The campaign's going very well," Ehrlich said in a recent interview. (The interview was conducted before the latest poll, which indicates that Ehrlich is only slightly behind Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley in the gubernatorial race. That's not bad for a Republican running in Maryland.) "We're very pleased," Ehrlich continued as he talked about - and put his spin on - Maryland's schools, crime and the economy.

Last year, Kevin Marsh had an operation to close a small hole in his heart. He'd had a stroke, and doctors worried that the opening could increase his chances of having another. Since then, Marsh has not had another stroke. The procedure had another benefit, too: He no longer suffers from the debilitating migraine headaches that had troubled him for decades. "The change is incredible," says the 50-year-old, who restores vintage cars in Salt Lake City. "I have not had one headache since the surgery."

Priest Holmes gained 8,172 yards in his 10-year career with the Baltimore Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs. That is even more impressive when you consider that he was occasionally hit so hard that his very perception of the world changed . Holmes, who won a Super Bowl during his four-year stint with the Ravens, told Fox Sports' Chris Corbellini that after helmet-to-helmet collisions, the sky would sometimes appear to change colors. “This color obviously isn't going to be blue.

Kathy Dobropolski pleaded with Baltimore public works officials for seven years to stop billing her for a neighbor's water use. Dobropolski, 60, lives alone in a Randallstown home without a dishwasher or clothes washer; her neighbors are a bustling family of four. Yet beginning in 2005, Dobropolski's water bills soared - from $25 to a startling $470 - while her neighbor's bills plummeted. She hired a plumber, who assured her she did not have a leak. She called the city again and again, once waiting on hold for 43 minutes.
