    So sorry, FTG, hope it's feeling better. BTW, You can break a toe & still be able to move it.

    - And, schloaty, it's spelled 'coccyx' & sorry to hear about your injury. Sounds like you're lucky you can walk!

    We are... and that's why I'm not sitting in a corner whining... I'm sitting in the computer chair whining!!! LOL but seriously, we do take pain better than boys... weeeee... WE RULE!!!

    Well, the toe is barely hurting now... how long does it normally take for a very minor, like, hairline break in a toe to heal? Because that might have been what happened... although doesn't something normally go numb when a bone is broke? Because when I broke my hand, I didn't feel a thing at first for an hour or so, but then the pain came on, but I lived with it for four days before deciding to go get it X-rayed, and, oh lookie there, right in the fourth long bone in my right hand (is it carple or metacarple?), a clean snap... funfunfun! I couldn't write for three weeks... CURSE MY RIGHT-HANDEDNESS!!!

    Okay.. what got me into rambling about my hand I was asking about a broken toe and it led to that... ***shakes head and sits down***

    You think thats bad try getting bit by a copper head on you`r right pinky! Not only does it hurt like....but it also makes your hand swell up to the size and thickness of a soft ball! It still (after two months) is swollen! *kringes and thinks back at the pain even on morphine!*

    Question

    They usually say it's takes a bone 6 weeks to heal enough to be able to safely start using it again. Obviously, if it's a small bone & a minor break, less of a problem. There are all kinds of reasons why your hand would have been numb after breaking it. Depends on where the break was, what the circumstances of the accident were... and it's metacarpals, those are the long bones in your hand. The carpals are the wrist bones.

    AHA! Spelling never was my forte! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] I think one might rather word that "you're much less unlucky that you can walk." If I was lucky I would have missed the rock! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Oh! I just remembered my other good injury! I think I was 23 or so at the time... I was sparing (for those non-martial artists out there, that means fighting with pads on and not trying to actually kill each other...it's practice) with my instructor, and made a really bad error. I ducked into a kick, instead of under it. I don't think I actually broke my nose, but I came darn near close to it....it gave me two black eyes...I looked like a racoon! Oh, that hurt. On the plus side, I met a nice girl out of it (nice? HA! )....I was out at a bar a few days later, and she said it made me look older & tough. Go figure.

    What a great time to have a post like this . A few months ago i sprained my wrist and i had to where a temporary cast for a while . Yesterday i had the most biggest owie i ever had , I was finnishing up late work in my room then when I finished , I went to the living which was dark and i accidently hit my toe really hard on a small steel chair . It hurt so much and I told my mom about it and told her that she should really make a clear walking space so people don't hit or trip themsleves . Anyways , when I turned on the lights my toe was bleeding alot and i had a big bruise on it . I limped to the kitchen in pain and got out band aids , hydrogen peroxide and some cotton balls to clean it and patched up things . Then when I walked out the kitchen I hit my other foot on a metal electric multi plug power chord or whatever they call those things where you can sitck a ton of plugs in for electricity . It hurt so much but not as much as my other injury . It was really late at night and I could'nt sleep until about an hour later because it hurt alot . Next day I took some Tylonel , drank some coffee , then had to walk alllllllllllllll the way to school . In 4th period it was p.e. and we had to run a mile , i was really pissed off and it was 106 degrees outside , it hurted like **** when i ran but at least i got a good time , 7 minutes , 49 seconds . In 5th period we had to get in groups for reading in a group , we had to turn our tables and i did and the person next to me rammed her table againts mines and my finger was between and it hurt alot . when school was over then I had to walk home all over again . When I came home I was happy it was all over but when I opened the door my brother closed it and my other hand was between and i yelled so loud in pain that birds flew off the telephone wires . So thats how much i suffered in these 2 days [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] , i wonder why it had to be this day as i usually don't get hurt this much .
