I had a bad incident with my neck when I was in First Grade. Messed some nerve up.

Have fun floating on air, the closest thing like that for me involved Karate.

Ouch! I messed my right ankle up a few times, couldn't walk for a day once, but nothing terrible. Now it just looks funny, don't think I'll be able to do any competitive sports on it though, when I run, it kinda makes my foot twist right :/

Other than that, once in awhile it pops pretty loud, but at least it feels good :D

I messed up my hamstring playing water polo three months ago... It happend the same way (with the pop... gah), but I don't think it was nearly as bad as yours. I had trouble walking for about a week, I had to turn around special ways (I couldn't move my legs in certain directions), and I couldn't get in the water for two or three weeks, but after that it felt fine.

masked_marsoe;3811061Sounds like you've got a Grade 3 injury there.

Which is quite nasty, because if you have actually torn the muscle, you might need surgery to get the muscle repaired, and you could spend a couple of months with limited-activity.

Otherwise, it should be back to normal in a few weeks, if you keep some ice and pressure on it now.[/quote] I was worried that it would've been a level 3 sprain, but it seems like it's healing a bit (it no longer is an unbearable pain at rest, though it still is uncomfortable). Thankfully, because no way could I have afforded surgery.

n88trDid the muscle joint pop?[/quote] Wha?

GavvyI got over it quickly as the injury wasn't too severe. As for you Jessy, all the advice I can offer is for you to take it easy for the next few weeks or so (you can have some hugs too if you like?). I'm pretty sure you'll be kick-boxing again soon enough. *superultrasnuggle*

Much appreciated.

Aye, the pop is the worst bit, isn't it? You get the "oh shit" feeling before you even feel any pain, haha.

Yeah. Then you try to move and your leg explodes into pain. Not fun, not fun at all. Good to hear its healing though, it shouold feel suprisingly better in a week or two, I would guess.

You really need health insurance. That is a neccessity in America. Only Europe provides FREE health care and America is too big of a jackass to make that happen. I feel bad for you man. This reminds me of the time I hit a school bus.

It's not that we're too big of a jackass for it to happen, it's that we don't know what the hell to focus on, nor do we understand what's important. We don't get how to properly fund what's important, or how to choose what's unimportant. We pump money into things that won't play out, and are greedy bastards as well. /rant

only ever had a really bad sprained ankle....But it took 6 weeks before I could walk on it right. It was a bad sprain. Also, I kinda broke my wrist and screwed up all the little bones inside it but I never put on a cast or anything. Took 3 months before I could lift objects over 20 pounds without pain.

Hope you heal soon. It sucks, I know.

Ryette;3810740It was the most disgusting pop, like when you pop a joint, but it came from my muscle. It felt like someone hit me in the leg with the spiked end of a hammer. Now I am completely incapable of walking. Worst of it all, I don't have health insurance, so my mom's just stuffing me full of hydrocodone, flexeril, and anti-inflammatory pills. Plus side is, I feel like I'm floating on air as a result.

Those all work, but for a hamstring rubbing it with ice is always good for keeping the swelling down. I swam for about 6 years... lots of pulled muscles and hamstrings in my lifetime. Also, tell your mother to get insurance!! After getting diagnosed with leukemia I've realized how important it is. If my family didn't have insurance all of the chemotherapy I'm receiving, my the surgery for my broviack(sp?), and all the nights spent in the special care unit would amount to over $500,000.

Also, anyone ever had a sports injury like this before? I'm trying to get an estimate on how long I should keep from doing kick boxing and yoga, so if anyone has any clue... let me know.

You should probably take a break from kick boxing for a while, but yoga is really good for you and you can't receive any injuries from it.[/SIZE]

Yeah, I've used ice packs and kept it wrapped. It seems to be healing pretty quickly, so I'm not too worried.

As for insurance, I'd love to have it, but I can't get it.

Thanks to everyone and their suggestions. :)
