Vocabulary of the Day

So, let’s have a little contest.  My sister and I have a habit of teaching each other new vocabulary words.  I’m spreading it around.  Here’s your vocabulary challenge of the day:

dyspnea  (disp-NEE-uh)

Used in a sentence:  “I have been experiencing dyspnea for the past few days.”

I was looking up this mystery symptom online, and I had no idea there was a word for it.  I think it’s anxiety or stress related for me, though that’s not a clue that will help you.

The first person to leave a comment with the correct definition will recieve a “woo-hoo” directly from me.  🙂

Bonus “woo-hoo” to anyone who can pronounce the s-p-n in the middle of the word without adding an extra syllable!  🙂
