Suck Thumb

Indescribable PAIN!!!

Indescribable PAIN!!!!

I fell down the stairs about an hour ago. I Fell smack on my tailbone and bounced/slid down on my ass for several steps before coming to a stop, badly in a tangled heap (I already have a horrific lower spine, my L4 & L5 vertebrae already protrude) So yeah, Major PAIN, Managed to also bang my left Knee badly in the wrought iron railing, bend four toes back abnormally on left foot and twist both my ankles on the way down... so I am sitting on bags of ice on my ass, on my knees & ankles and hoping the pain will lesson SOON! *cries*


Pain UPDATE...

It didn't get any better so Mom took me over to the ER (John took Benedryl before bed and was far too groggy... not to mention my beloved it rather a basket case if I have the sniffles let alone am actually INJURED. As much as I adore John, he so did not need to be stressing...) Two hours and several x-rays later...

Nothing is broken *Whew*

But I have one massive, killer, honking bruise smack dab on my tailbone. So big it showed up on the x-ray! O_o I also have severe lumbar muscle strain, i already sorta figured that one out myself.

So I got released after two hours and have a prescription for some Lortab and Flexerill (Pain killer and muscle relaxer) and the Doctor gave me orders to rest, because the pain sadly will get worse over the next few days before it gets better *sigh*

But I'm glad I went, better safe than sorry when I fell that HARD on my ass. My knee is already turning purple and I so do not want to know what my ass looks like.

So I'm just gonna relax on the couch a while, I don't want to wake John up going to bed, He's been busting his ass lately and needs the sleep, I can go to bed when he gets up in a few hours, I can doze on the couch until then.

The Lortab they gave me in the ER is finally kicking in as so long as I don't move I feel Okay. Any movement however is still agony, so it looks like I am sitting STILL for the forseeable future.
