Gah!

This online medical term. course is killing me... I'm so confused with a lot of these terms... and the way the questions are worded. Anyways I cross posted this... I just need help figuring out which one of these is the answer...

The word root for stupor is:
Coma
Narc
Crypt
Alges



Any ideas? I can't find any of the words in my friggen index & I even tryed an online dictionary along with my medical dictionary with no success.


Thanks,
Myles Anthony

Narc. You can remember this by remembering that narcotic drugs can produce stupor, and the technical name for "the bends", which produces stupor and pseudo-drunkenness, is nitrogen narcosis.

Coma goes way beyond "stupor", and anyway it's a word in itself, not a word root (or at least I've never heard it used as a combining form). Crypt- means "hidden" as in cryptorchidism ("hidden" or undescended testes); "alges" is the word-root for "pain" as in "analgesia" (an-, lack of; -algesia, pain.
