I only knew 3- lunule, gynecomastia, and paresthesia. Apparently my browser`s spell check doesn`t know any of those. Well, now it does.

I knew most of them - but I knew wamble as borborygmus. Borborygmus/ borborygmy is better in my book.

I think they got lunule wrong.
It`s the white part at the root of a nail (where the nail grows), not the top (where you clip the nail).
