Medical terminology may not be the most riveting class in the world, and in fact it can be a bit of a challenge, almost like learning a new language. That is until you realize there is a cool medical term for just about anything. Below are some of our favorites.
- Borborygmi – All that rumbling and gurgling you hear your stomach make when you are hungry.
- Sternutate – To sneeze
- Diaphragmatic Flutter – Also known as those annoying little things called Hiccups.
- Sphenopalatine Ganglioneuralgia – Ice cream Headache!
- Veisalgia – If you party a little bit too hard you may experience this. It comes from the Norwegian word kveis (“uneasiness following debauchery”) and the greek word for pain. Commonly known as a hangover.
