Yesterday I fell...stupid accident but fell over my darling 6 month old puppy who was faithfully lying behind me. As I turned around, unaware that she was behind me, I fell hitting my forearm/wrist & ankle. Went to A&E, had X-rays etc as was in a significant amount of pain.
Was surprised to find out I don't in fact have a fracture but a soft tissue injury. I woke up this morning feeling like I've been hit by a lorry & back flaring (after 6 days of increased energy & felling somewhat "normal" - hallelujah!).
I've had a recent UCTD diagnosis, not too surprised I'm feeling pretty crap today. I'm still trying to understand what's going on with my body, but with my history of tendonitis, bursitis etc... does anyone know if healing from this is going to be affected by the CTD issue?
Was told 3-5 days of significant pain, with 4-6 weeks recovery. Am taking paracetamol and icing every couple of hours.
