UNDATED (KTHV) -- No matter what the question, no one can stump Dr. T. Glenn Pait with UAMS. He's cracking open up his medical mailbag to answer your questions.

These are the questions he covered:

-Should my family wear helmets during severe weather?

-Every time I wear a piece of jewelry I develop a rash. Please tell me I'm not allergic to my jewelry.

-Is it true your metabolism slows down as you get older?

-I'm a 55-year-old woman. My mother says I should drink more milk to help prevent knee arthritis. By the way, I have no problems drinking milk - I am not lactose intolerant. Is my mother correct and should I return to a diet with more milk?

-I have a difficult time falling asleep at night. My wife blames it on my chewing tobacco. The tobacco is relaxing. Please tell her my chewing tobacco before going to bed has nothing to do with my sleep.
