    I was walking in the house and hit my self in the leg just above and at the ankle.
    That was about 5 hours ago, and walking on it hurts and a pain just when I am
    sitting..... and when I walk its real bad, I am hoping some one can tell me if I
    will be better ? with out having to go to the doctor ? I think it would be much sharper
    if I need a doctor ? It does easy up when still . I hope some one has a clue to this ?
    Any ideas at all please ! And thank you very much.............!

    @Grams
    I cannot answer all of your questions but God most certainly knows the answers. I am praying for you.

    Have you done the very first thing we were all taught to do as children, pack it with ice for awhile?

    Hey Marlene
    Sorry to hear that it is still bothering you. Praying for your pain relief and healing.
    I don't like Tylenol...( very bad for the liver and kidneys, and my kidneys are already compromised.) ...but with me it is a case of having to take Tylenol , or I will go screaming mad.

    I haven't slept for more than an hour for over a week now.
    The pain in my back doesn't stay in one place, but shifts around, so I can never relax and get comfortable.

    We are a right old pair aren't we. :oops:

    I hate doing ice too, but every doctor I have ever spoken with prescribes it as the very first thing to do.

    Oh, Helen, I can so relate to your pain. I sure hope it will settle on it's own. Have you considered a chiropractor? It does help for some...never did for me though. I have been through 6 surgeries, 3 on the back...I had chronic, 24/7 sciatica pain and I mean chronic, woke up with it one day, and it stayed for a good solid 4 years back in the late 90's early 2000. It was very difficult to work all that time as my job required me to be on my feet and fast, all over the hospital. I was NOT a happy camper and I will be praying that God will put His healing touch on your pain! As well as you @Grams

    Whiskey for Pain



    "Whiskey is one of the cheapest and best painkillers known to man." So reported Dr. Harold George Wolff of Cornell last week to the Association of American Physicians meeting at Atlantic City. Earlier doctors, he said, prescribed whiskey freely but were finally forced to discard it for "moral and ethical considerations.''

    In their experiments, Drs. Wolff, James D. Hardy and Helen Goodell tried a mixture of two ounces of 95% grain alcohol in a glass of ginger ale on themselves, found that it raises the "threshold" of pain 45% for two hours. Two ounces of 90-proof whiskey will turn the same trick. If a five-grain tablet of aspirin is added, any pain can be dulled for four hours. Dr. Wolff urged his colleagues to return to the use of whiskey for "persons suffering continuously," especially cancer victims. Said he: "It is cheaper than morphine. ... Of course alcohol is habit-forming but an alcohol habit is less difficult to deal with than a morphine habit."

    It is definitely a genetic problem. I can spot an alcoholic long before they ever take their first drink at times. It always proved to be true eventually.

    I have tried that..... I guess I have to wait till what ever is in side the ankle that is still
    ? kind of hurt ? When I touch it....... I guess healing takes long some times.
    And maybe , my age pro longs it all ?????
