injured myself sitting on the loo
On Saturday I sat on the toilet and felt a sharp pain in the side of my leg. Within a couple of hours I couldn't walk on the leg. Today I have had it diagnosed as an inflamed bursa .So...I managed 9 months of IM training injury free and now I can't walk because I sat on the loo!!!
Anyone else injure themselves in a stupid way?
I know someone who broke their thumb shutting a lift door.
I have an unexplained burn on my left elbow, which has been very blistered but I can't remember doing, I think Dave tortures me in my sleep, it's the only possible explanation.
Slugsta - I pulled my intercostals sneezing once. Signed off work for a few days and lots of very good painkillers, result!
My list of daft injuries is long and embarressing. I'm 37 and there are only two years in my entire life when I haven't presented myself at A&E with something broken, bashed, torn or bleeding;
- damaged knee ligaments by dancing on a table in heels
- sprained ankle falling off a kerb, crutches for four weeks
- burnt all fingers on right hand by pouring gravy over them
and the best one is entirely my Mother's fault - admitted to hospital as a toddler with suspected meninghitus (excuse spelling ) to discover I had heat rash.
Rolled over in bed and pulled my groin - didn't run for a while after - bloody hurt
Bending over to put key in front door pulled my back - was in agony for a few days with that too

D had to have a complicated operation on his hand, after snapping a tendon making a cup of tea.
