what was your most painful injury?
Thought I'd ask a new question to liven up things.

Most immediate pain I ever felt was when I was sled riding down a hill and ended up wrapping myself around a tree. I had serious trouble breathing for several minutes after. The immense struggle to inhale was intense. Do not recommend.

For a long term pain, I broke my collar bone wrestling my junior year in high school. I became unconscious so I did not feel immediate pain. First trip in an ambulance. Doctor recommended I wear this figure 8 contraption that I put both arms into to keep my shoulders in proper position. Any slight movement caused pain that shot through my whole body. To this day this injury has caused me residual loss of motion and use of my arm, which while annoying, still can be painful if I move in the wrong way.

So tell me about yours.

RE: what was your most painful injury?
I have a two part story.

10th grade choir class. A couple of us were horsing around. I was pushed very lightly against the corner of a raised platform.
The impact hit my lower back and it was excruciatingly painful. I sat down but could not stand back up. I missed two years of baseball (I played but I sucked), football & track. My back improved somewhat and I was learning to live with some pain by the time I graduated. My doctor advised never to play contact sports again so I promptly played football my senior year.

Spring forward another year to College at BG.

Winter break 1980-81 in a small German community in Ohio named Coldwater. We drank a lot in celebration of something or other. We had decided to move on to the next bar a couple small towns away so we were all gathering back at the bar we were at. I was walking up the alley to the side door and saw my friend's car (Gremlin) with everyone but me in it. It was icy and as I approached I kicked a small rock off the alley, slipped and fell on my butt. My back was to the back of the car. They began backing up and partially ran over me. I foolishly didn't yell even though I could hear them speaking in the car and they could easily hear me. I tried to lift the car up so I could fit underneath......like I said, we were drinking thus the impaired judgement. My right ankle snapped and I was contorted into a position my back was not ok with. I heard them say they were backing over a garbage can (right next to me but really it was me). They pulled forward, I rolled out of the way and then they backed up again but faster this time. They noticed me as they went by and stopped.

I eventually got up into the car with them and we continued our bar hopping. At the next bar I could not move my leg so I stayed in the car with my girlfriend. No one mentioned the blood on my face from scraping against the underside of the car. Once she realized how bad I was, she retrieved everyone and brought me home.

I was trying to get to my bed and fell on the floor. My brother found me on the floor, bloody face, jacket torn apart and giggling. Went to the hospital a few hours later. Fractured bones in my ankle and some torn ligaments. Strangely enough, it seemed to correct my back issues. The ultimate adjustment. The ankle was not set correctly and I've had issues with it to this day.

I hurt my ankle forever but never had back problems again. I consider that a fair trade.
