Word of the day No.1

As many of you don't know(none of you most likely since no one is reading this)I am an HIT major. That's Health Information Technician. This means that I have to take terminology classes. So instead of just me being tortured by the insanity of medical nomenclature I will submit a word every day or so. Here's number one:

Tetany: a condition affecting nerves, causing muscle spasms as a result of low amounts of calcium in the blood due to a deficiency of the parathyroid hormone.

I am glad that I now know the definition of Tetany. With out you I would have never known what was wrong with me when I had low amounts of calcium in my blood due to my defective and/or deficient hormones.

Also, I would like you know that I had to type the word "musaturo" in order to post this post.
