I fell the other day (more like flew arms out like superman!) and landed on both knees with both wrists hitting the pavement. Don't know if my head hit too but my glasses flew off my face. the 20lb backpack on my back didn't help me balace either.
Result? 2 very blue knees right down to the mid calf, wrists and a broken blood vessel in one eye.
Sharp pouch pain for a couple of days. And severe pain behind the pouch. Hip too (what else is new?) Been on full fluids since Tues.
So doctor has me back on NSAIDs, ice packs plus huge doses of pain meds, eye drops for the burst blood vessel etc..;ultrasound and scanner next week to check for damage but I doubt that it is anything serious. Just shaken up in there.
What is bugging me is the fact that this is not the 1st time that this has happened. It occurs about every 3-4 months or more. I used to fall constantly (almost monthly or more...hubby always made fun of it saying "there-she-is-there-she-isn't" but now he doesn't dare mock me!)...just wondering if any others hear are chronic 'fallers'.
Luckily I haven't broken anything yet which is great but I would love for it to stop happening.
Not sure if it the sacroilitis that doesn't allow one foot to lift as high as the other or is something else...I only wear flat sneakers out so it isn't the shoes.
Just another silly thing that has me perplexed.
