HEALTH RELATED WORD LIST

This list is in honor of my son, who has Multiple Sclerosis. The list consist of frequently used health related words. In no way is this list comprehensive. Many of these words can be used in fiction and non-fiction writing work.

For those looking for professional medical terms check out an online medical dictionary. I like Web MD, http://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/common-topics/default.htm.
