A man told his doctor that he wasn't able to do all the things around the house that he used to do. When the examination was complete, he said, "Now, Doc, I can take it. Tell me in plain English what is wrong with me."
"Well, in plain English," the doctor replied, "you're just lazy."
"OK," said the man. "Now give me the medical term so I can tell my wife."
Usually I don’t make comments on jokes, but this one I have to. Most medical diagnosis’ are actually just the Latin word for the exact same thing people call the problem in plain english.
Arthritis = joint inflammation
Fibromyalgia = muscle pain
Cephalgia = headache
The list really goes on.
Meaning, the diagnosis tells you nothing about why you have those symptoms. You must do the right things to allow your body to heal. You cannot just take a drug or do surgery and expect to fix the problem. You will only cover up the symptoms.
