Trip led to A&E

Feeling low today and in terrible pain. Tripped on an uneven pavement in town yesterday afternoon and ended up in hospital. I couldn't,t bend my legs at all so went flying forwards to meet the ground taking the impact on my right (arthritic) knee then my thighs, chest and arms just missing my face as my arms shielded it. Shock set in as did attack of trigeminal neuralgia so head and face felt like burning. Ambulance took me to Hosp. Nothing broken(thank god) severe soft tissue damage poss. Discharged with crutches. See doc tmrw for MRI. Not able to work for a bit now. Soz just having a moan.

  • Oh dear 😟. Thank goodness you didn't break anything though, hope you feel a little better soon, the pavements in town are terrible you have to be so careful, maybe cause for a claim? 👍

    Thanks Arymretep. I,m cross with myself for feeling sorry for myself! I try to keep positive about my fibro and other medical conditions and wasn't prepared for this setback. Not sure I,ve got the energy for a claim. Live in Truro and pavements are a nightmare here.

  • I hope you recover soon xx
