My version of a bad day

It began with a mild headache this morning. Turned into an ugly migraine with aura by midday. Stuck in traffic, I was unable to either take medicine nor seek refuge in a dark space. ...fast forward a few hours... The pain meds are finally working. I wanted to get up from the computer to see how my newborn baby was doing. Didn't notice that my left foot was asleep. BAM! - I crashed dived onto the floor. I stepped with all full weight on the dorsum of the foot (the area facing upwards while standing). That foot already suffered from ligament damage when I was a teenager. Now I might have torn some ligaments again.

I post this as I am applying the second ice pack on my ankle. I don't think I should do anything else for the rest of the day. Too dangerous.

Guilty...I was in a hurry (end of workday) and didn't read the post carefully enough.

Congrats on the new born!!!!

Thanks.

Sophie is three months old, not sure if she still qualifies as a newborn.

Ahhh... my foot is itching from the ice pack. Hope that's a good sign.

Alex - keep a pair of amber or yellow lens glasses in your car. If/when a migraine starts to develop, these lenses can really decrease your eye strain/head pain until you can get to a dark room. They take the painful glare out of sunlight, or from oncoming headlights. I always have a pair in the car, and I also use them if I have to use a computer - they can lessen the pain from bright screens.

Thanks guys!!!!!!!!!

My ankle is swollen like a balloon and it hurts badly when I try to step on the foot. Tomorrow I have an x-ray appointment... hoping that it's nothing bad since I have a flight to catch this Friday.

Very cute lil baby girl! And boo-hiss about the ankle. I hope it improves quickly. Maybe this is a signal that you should spend time laying/sitting on the floor playing with the baby. Not using your ankle at all! Best of luck.

My dad drove me to the hospital today. The x-ray didn't reveal anything broken nor torn. Only badly bruised. Lucky me!! However, the doctor was quite concerned about my flatfeet and that I should immediately wear custom orthotics.
