      Technically, she could be referring to the original meaning of the two-word phrase as opposed to the eponymous use.

    The answer is, "Hand truck".

    Allow me to overthink this -

    Your question had 4 sets: (1,1), (1,1), (1,1), (1,x).  Each set contained a word that had a commonality with its partner...

    Charlie horse & Goose egg - commonality = animal
    Bum knee & Green thumb - commonality = body part
    Tennis elbow & Trick shoulder - commonality = body joint
    Lead foot & ? - commonality = body extremity (from the conclusion that all the other commonalities are biological)  

    Therefore, your question could be read, "solve for x".  (I thought you were into grammar, not mathematics)

    General commonality = biological.  Commonality sequence in list one = commonality word always second.  Commonality sequence in list 2 = first word, second word, second word....  Since was no indication of a continuance, logically the missing word in the second list should switch back to being the first word.  Truck is to lead (non biological) as hand is to foot (biological).

    Could just as easily be iron lung (or Thrifty's iron stomach), with the commonality being metallic element + body part.

    True, but a stomach and a lung aren't extremities (like a foot and a hand).
