I careered down the loft this morning and as I went flying and landed with a thud on my sciatica ridden butt , I tried to bring some resistance to the fall with my left arm. But in the process I grazed it really badly and it is all swollen and bruised. Now I just came back from the chemist and applied Arnica cream on it. This is very good for bringing out the bruising. It is a homeopathic remedy. So, if ever you do something as stupid as I did this morning..get some Arnica ointment or creme, they also hav3e tablets too..Have fun!!

Aww yanny, sorry to hear about the fall. You sure are still in great spirit despite the bruise. Hope you can still lift those arms and continue mylotting. Arnica is actually a plant-based derived ointment and has many uses. You have fun there too and enjoy mylotting.

I am sorry you had such a fall this morning. You should hold on as you come down, LOL. I have heard of using arnica cream. I actually have purchased one tube. I think even the local dollar store has it available. I believe we need to use more herbs, as our ancestors did. This is going to make it hard for you to type, isn't it? I think you had to get all banged up out of sympathy for your hubby's accident, so you both could be nursing your wounds. I wish you a good day of recovery my friend.

What are you like eh sis? Least you can laugh about it now, although I doubt it was very funny when it happened! Keep an eye on it, make sure it's not fractured, if it gets worse you may need to go to casualty to get it checked out, it's the aftershock that's the worst. I hope it heals up soon and here's a hug and promise me you'll relax and take it easy and give yourself plenty of TLC!

Oh I'm sorry to hear you hurt yourself! I've been doing a lot of falling lately because of vertigo associated with Meniere's disease. Even though I've tried to make my home safer and be careful, I still sometimes find myself getting banged up. So I'm going to have to get some of that Arnica and try it! Thanks for sharing your remedy with us!

I am sorry to hear that you fell down. I am glad that you weren't severely injured to the point of hospitalization. Falling down can be quite painful as last year I slipped on water in my kitchen and went flying through the air injuring both my lower back and my knee. The year before I slipped in the bathtub and hurt my hip. I have never heard of Arnica cream until now. I hope that it does wonders. I will have to find out where it can be purchased here in the U.S. so that if I do have another nasty fall I can go and get some.

Awe yanji, I hope you are not in too much pain. I have never heard of Arnica creme. Is it really expensive? I hope it helps you. Please be careful and get some rest.

Arnica oil is the best! I bruise quite easily being a vegetarian and not getting enough iron from my diet and I use Arnica for everything, from bruised limbs to painful joints! The best in the west:)

Oh man! That is bad to hear! I will say (and have said) a little prayer and blessing for you.. for good and total healing, so neither your back or arm will trouble you for long, nor later! I'm glad to hear you are on your way to recovery.. glad you didn't break anything! I too took a spill years ago (only slowed by my arm which went through the window and needed seven(?) stitiches, but I learned that day to slow down as I'd been stressed and running around.. and in moccassins at the top of the stairs.. The glass of the window went right through the skin of my arm, and a corner out the other side, but it didn't do any real damage, just a trip to the emergency room and a towel I wasted applying pressure. Take care of yourself!:)

I've never heard of that product. I'll have a look for it the next time I am in Boots. You take care of yourself. That sounds like a nasty fall. Tomorrow will be worse, you'll get up all stiff. If you want me to put you on my healing list let me know.
