Have You Ever Injured Yourself Severely But Didn't Notice Any Pain?

Have You Ever Injured Yourself Severely But Didn't Notice Any Pain?

Rosanna and I were wondering if anyone has ever tore a muscle, ligament, tendon or broke/fractured a bone without experiencing pain. For instance, I broke my wrist but didn't know it was broken because the pain was the same as my everyday pain.

Are you concerned that you may injure yourself but not know it because you have become accustomed to daily pain?

Yes I blew a ligament in my ankle and didn’t know how bad it was until 3 days latter when swelling became worse and I was having difficulty standing on it or walking. All I felt at time was like a Charlie horse after rest leg on edge of a bed. My other joint pain masked it . Some antibiotics can cause ligaments to rupture as well when on long term.

I tore my ACL completely. Waited 1 wks before going to ER only because I kept falling. They were shocked I walked in on my own and stated professional sports players come in screaming. They also set my leg w a metal Velcro cast in a straight position. By time 2 more wks went till i could see a specialist I lost 60%of my ability to bend my leg. That's my story and sticking to it.

Yes! I too broke my wrist 3 months ago. While it hurt at the time, pain fades into pain, it's all just... pain. I sit everyday at a solid 6. A little wrist break fades into the pain I already have. Doc looked at me like I was LITERALLY fn crazy. ugh.
