  • OUCH!! you may or may not have done damage to soft tissues and ulnar nerve (funny bone). Take an anti-inflammatory such as Advil or Motrin. Use an ice pack for 20 mins on and 30 mins off for any swelling and make an appointment with your general practitioner. If you get dizzy, have a headache, vomiting or are extremely tired go to the ER right away. Hope you heal soon.

  • Oh crap! you poor thing! If you can move all of your limbs, you probably didn't break anything. Babyboyzz has some great advice. If you hit your head pretty hard, I'd just watch for the signs she mentioned, in case you've given yourself a concussion.

  • Ouch!! If you hit your head hard, then you should go to the ER and get checked out, it doesn't take a very hard fall to have a head injury. Otherwise, I would give it a few days and see how you feel. Other than sore and like a dork. Sorry, been there done that although I didn't hit my head.
