Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Migraine

Migraine headaches are most definitely not fun, and can put the sufferer out of action for days at a time, if severe. Typified by severe pain in one side of the head, migraine is a neurological problem, that can be triggered by a number of different things, including food, stress, hormones to name a few.

The sufferer may experience sensitivity to light, nausea, flashing lights and much more. In my personal experience with this problem, catching it early and trying to sleep in a darkened room (emphasis on trying) might shorten the duration of the migraine. Happily for me, they have become less frequent as I have aged.
2. Myopia

The numeral 2 has been placed as close as possible to the position of an eye in the diagram, to lead you to choose myopia as the answer. Also known as nearsightedness or shortsightedness, myopia occurs when one's eyeball is too long, or the cornea is somehow misshapen. Light entering the eye focuses in the wrong position, causing faraway objects to appear to be blurry, whilst closer ones can be seen clearly. Corrective lenses can help with the problem, as can some types of surgery.
3. Tinnitus

More commonly known as "ringing in the ears", tinnitus can have a variety of causes, including exposure to loud noises and age-related hearing loss. Although not a cure, one way to alleviate the problem that has proved effective for some is the use of a white noise machine, to counteract the sound in one's ears.
4. Tonsillitis

Tonsils are lymph nodes in the throat, and tonsillitis is an infection, either viral or bacterial, of the tonsils, most common in children but possible in older folk too. Symptoms include a sore throat and trouble swallowing. Years ago the cure was to remove the tonsils (my own came out when I was six) but more recently it has become the norm to treat each infection medically, with a tonsillectomy now the last resort.
5. Bronchitis

Call it bronchitis or call it a chest cold, this results when the lungs' airways become infected, causing coughing, shortness of breath, fever and fatigue. It will often "go away" without resorting to antibiotics, if the sufferer is able to rest and refrains from smoking and otherwise compromising their airways. If symptoms persist, however, it would be a good idea to see a doctor.
6. Gastritis

Gastritis is a tummy ache taken to an extreme degree. It involves inflammation of the stomach lining and symptoms include that ache in the tummy, nausea, indigestion, bloating and more. Causes include drinking alcohol to excess, smoking and taking certain medications that irritate the stomach lining. Treatment can include taking antacids, avoiding spicy foods, cutting down on alcohol consumption and occasionally (for some types of gastritis) antibiotics.
7. Appendicitis

Appendicitis happens when that useless little organ called the appendix becomes infected and swollen, causing excruciating pain in the lower right abdomen of the sufferer and quite probably fever too. One is advised to seek medical help right away, and in all but the most unusual of cases the remedy is an appendectomy (removal of the appendix). It is possible that the appendix could rupture if unattended, causing worse infection and possibly becoming life threatening.
8. Lateral epicondylitis

It would have made the question too easy if I had called this "tennis elbow", the common term for lateral epicondylitis. This is a repetitive stress injury that affects the tendons in the elbow, and is not restricted to tennis players, but can be found in anyone whose job requires repetitive movements that put stress on those tendons. "Plumber's elbow" doesn't quite have the same ring to it, though, does it? Maybe "butcher's elbow"? A word of caution - overuse of a computer mouse can also lead to tennis elbow!

Treatment includes rest, ice packs and nonprescription pain relievers.
9. Prepatellar bursitis

This is another case where using the common term, housemaid's knee, would have given away the answer. The fancy term describes a sac, or bursa, in front of the kneecap (patella). Inflammation of this sac is thus "prepatellar bursitis", caused by kneeling for long periods of time, in a particular manner, as would a housemaid whilst scrubbing floors or a carpet layer whilst plying his trade. Clergyman's knee is apparently not quite the same thing, as the pain is below the knee in his case rather than above it. Treatment ranges from simply staying off your knees, to various medications, sometimes even cortisone injections .
10. Plantar fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the bottom of the foot, causing heel pain and aches in the sole of the foot. Causes include some types of sports, ballet dancing, being on one's feet for long stretches, especially on hard surfaces, wearing non-supportive shoes or no shoes at all. High arches and flat feet can both contribute to the problem as can being overweight.

Treatment includes rest, over the counter pain killers, ice, wearing supportive shoes and avoiding standing for long periods of time.
