## Word Puzzle, Great Weight

I am a little word made up of only 5 letters, yet so great is my weight that strong men have been crushed by me.

My 2,1,3,4,5 will make a poor man wealthy.

My 3,2,1,4 is that in which many strive, but only one wins.

My 5,4,2,3 is to burn.

My 2,1,4 is one.

My 2,3,1 is not complete.

My 1,2,5,4 is visited frequently by a physician, who typically has more 1,2,3,4,5 than a follower of any other profession.

What am I?
