CoT medical, is my arm broken
So, I am having a good weekend. Played a little volleyball, then after that, decide to run and watch women. Well, I guess with my new fat ass, I thought I could jump over this fence thing. Well, I couldnt and hit the concrete like Rosie on a Big Mac. Used my arm to break the fall, did a nice roll and kept on running. Couldnt move my arm for an hour, drive or anything else. Now, it feels better and I was able to type this.
I have broken bones before. Normally the procedure is. Searing pain in the beginning = obviously broken.
Wait an hour or two, then wait for the searing pain. I am going to wait it out, see what happens.
Here is my research:
Go to a doc, have your rotary cuff checked.

I guess this means I won't be asking you whether Sun Java Swing works on Ubuntu. ;-D Kidding. I'm using Windows.
Where is the soreness? After a while, maybe you identify where the soreness is coming from, which ligament, etc. Hopefully, it's not the shoulder socket. What got overextended or landed on?
No snapping or ripping sounds is a good thing, in my experience.
No, it is at the forearm. The pain has kind of gone away. But certain movement hurts. Like doing 'curl' like excercises.
Sounds like a severe sprain, or I'd doubt you'd be in shape enough to blog and google about the situation.
It could take a week just for the swelling to go down, sounds like you've been healing rather quickly. You should look for a sling or an arm brace or something down at the pharmacy, at the very least, just to keep from doing whatever makes it "hurt".
It also works to prevent the boss from asking you to move large objects.

Hehe, I think it is a muscle injury. Because it isnt a searing, spiking pain. More of, when I strain it or move it, kind of really bad, pulled muscle kind of pain.
If I keep my arm in a L-shape, I am ok. But, keeping my arm straight, doing something like; sitting on the floor and using my arms to keep me up; that hurts.
Well, I probably wait till tomorrow and see what happens.
little ice, little elevation, aspirin, rest.

Yes. Plus, when you strain something like that it can take a week before it's "just weak".
Well, my arm is a big paper-weight. Got to go to doctor. Great.
It's probably too late to apply ice. Add heat at this point.
Good luck at the doc.
