    I hurt myself, big time, playing softball today. I simply cannot raise my legs. Anyone know what to do about two hip-pointers (I think)? I can't run -- just shuffle like an old man.

    The general advice for this (which is indeed agony) is to use some kind of cold compression (ice, etc.) to reduce swelling and bleeding within the damaged tissues ... and keep doing this for up to 20 minutes out of every hour for even a day or two. Take a pain killer such as acetaminophen (with or without codeine) as opposed to aspirin or a similar anti-inflammatory, as the blood-thinning properties of the latter can impede the healing process by allowing bleeding within tissues to continue for longer.

    Depending on how bad the injury is ... lay off most all strenuous activity for 1 to 2 weeks; and see a doctor or physiotherapist if it's a serious injury ... the latter in particular may use ultrasound or warming packs to speed recovery. It can also be useful to get x-rayed just to ensure there are no bone fractures, which are commonly associated with this kind of injury.

    It's not THAT serious. But my quads are tight, and it feels like the connection between my hips and my torso is weaker than hell.

    The advise that Alex gave is the general adivce suggested. However, Alex didn't point out that once the swelling has subsided, you can then switch to heat or alternate back and forth from heat to cold with a break from both in between.

    Says the guy with the body shot for an avatar.
    C'mon, give him a break, sounds like he's already suffered a tear.

    Not looking to rip into you, Lex, I enjoy your posts.
    Incidentally did you know the artist,Natasha Bedingfield, whose song you sited also has a track called Size Matters? It's a clever song.

    To Jonah, Feel better.

    Correct. Matthew is my hubby and this, therefore, is HIS body. I borrow it only for work and masturbation.

    Hey, I'm the type of fellow that likes to share. That's one of the reasons Lex married me -- right, Lex? :wink: Besides, can you imagine how unpopular I'd be around here if I hogged THAT BOD all to myself??? I'm a shrewder politician than that.

    So everyone borrow away (um, you still have to ask Lex first:rolleyes:), masturbate until ya caint no more, and Alex -- let the filming continue, "best boy." :biggrin1:

    @Naughty: well, snnnAP!
