This is a section on symptoms, possible diagnosis and remedies. These exchanges between doctor and patient have been mixed up. Decide which response should follow which question.
1. I have been suffering from insomnia lately. Do you think I might be heading for a nervous breakdown?
a. It might well be. I will put you on antibiotics for a while anyway, to lessen the risk of serious infection.
2. I seem to have some sort of stye [staı] or infection in my right eye. Do you think I might have conguctivities [kən͵ʤᴧŋktıˊvaıtıs]?
b. Unlikely, but I will let you have some cough mixture to relieve the symptoms. You can get yourself some lozenges, if you like.
3. I feel so feverish, and I am sure I have got a temperature. I’m so afraid that there is something wrong with my heart.
c. I would doubt it. Here, rub this cream in for the next few nights to help reduce the swelling.
4. I have got a rather sore throat, and I keep feeling a bit flushed. Do you think it could be flu?
d. No, of course not. But I will prescribe some barbiturates – sleeping peels – to help you get a good night’s rest. OK?
5. I have got a big bump on the back of my head. Do you think it might be more than a bruise?
e. I wouldn’t have thought so. But I’ll give you a prescription, for some drops to try and clear it up.
6. I keep getting shooting pains down my shin and ankle. Is it possible that I have broken or sprained something?
f. Well, the X-ray didn’t show anything. If it’s so painful, you’d better have some crutchesto walk with and some painkillersto ease the pain.
7. I have got a dull ache in my arm and occasionally I get a spasm. Could it be a minor fracture, a chipped bone or something?
g. Mm, sounds a bit like it. I’ll make you out a prescription for some penicilline, and some menthol inhalations might speed up the recovery.
8. I have come out in a rash. Do you think it could be a skin disease like impetigo or dermatitis?
h. It’s just possible. I’ll put it in a sling. That should reduce your discomfort quite a lot.
9. I keep getting short of breath. Is there any way I could be suffering from asthma?
i. Oh, I shouldn’t think so, but I think perhaps you ought to start taking these tranquillisers, to at least get your blood pressure down.
10. I think I have got an ulcer in my mouth. Do you think it could be a sign that I am run down?
j. Oh no, no, no. You’d know if it was. I’ll give you some ointment to rub in to get rid of the inflammation.
