I Fell And Hit My Bad Right Arm

I tripped over my untied shoelaces Wednesday morning and hit my bad arm on the desk. Then I fell on my left knee and hit the floor in horrible pain. It all started when I was sitting at the table. I saw a spider on the wall going down. I got up to get the spider and then tripped over my left shoe laces. My husband came running in and saw me laying on the floor holding onto my bad right arm. My arm had gone numb and my hand was shaking. I laid there for 10 minutes or so but then got up and went to work. It took an hour or so for my hand to stop shaking. I have a huge black and blue mark on my arm. Saturday I was planning to get my X-ray anyway so I did that.

Ouch, that sounds painful. Did your x-rays indicate a fracture or anything? I hope that your bruise heals, at least with this weather, you can wear long sleeves and keep it covered. There's one positive to the bitter cold we're getting.

@Juliaacv I don't know yet. Hopefully it will only need physical therapy.

This is one of the real annoyances in life. We always manage to hit or fall on the part of our body that is already hurt.

@Jessicalynnt It's been hurting off and on for almost 6 months. I hope all I need is physical therapy.
