This is in response to Michele I. Beeks' letter (Jan. 26), "Phrases." As a physician inquiring about patients' illnesses, I get the following response frequently nowadays: "Do you have a sore throat?" "Not that I know of." "Did you have abdominal pain?" "Not that I know of." "Has your ankle been broken before?" "Not that I know of." It is obviously absurd. I am sure this phrase is used in other inappropriate situations. MOSES FENN Fullerton

"My stomach hurts!" It's a complaint every parent hears -- usually more than once -- and it leads to a question every parent faces: Is it just a stomachache or is it a sign of something more serious? Pediatric experts estimate that about 10% of school-age children suffer from recurrent abdominal pain. Most of these painful episodes are not associated with serious medical disorders, and the overwhelming majority resolve themselves without any treatment.
