And guess what I did today?

Just to be ever so graceful, I took a nose dive in the garage on the cement floor. Owwwww. Hit my knee, my ankle, my elbow and finally ended up on my head. I've been losing my balance lately along with the numbness and tingling. Isn't that grand and today I just couldn't seem to catch myself before I went down. They are going to do a MRI of my brain and my spine sometime this week to rule out a few things the doctor is thinking. Geeze, I don't even want to know what he's thinking. But he's going to be thrilled when I tell him I fell. He told me to be extra careful. Lord, way to ignore your doctor. LOL I'm really sore, but nothing broken, so that's good. Tomorrow will bring stiffness and soreness like I won't believe. But as I said, at least I'm all right. My husband said life is never dull with me and I think he's right. I would like a dull day or two.

I'm so damned graceful. LOL Seriously, I'm fine, just banged up a little bit. I will try and be more careful from now on.

Thank you for the hugs. I'll be just fine, I just wasn't thrilled with lying on the cement floor trying to get up. And of course there was nothing to help me up. LOL I never do anything half-assed. LOL

People I care about need to stop falling down!

Are you okay? Really?

Your doctor sounds sensible. Those symptoms could indicate loads of things: he's looking for the most serious explanation first. Check that off the list and chances are the news won't be bad.

I really am okay. I'm just lucky I didn't break anything. And you are right. The doctor doesn't want his patient to worry about something that might not come to be. I'm not worried, really. I'm still thinking it's a pinched nerve. I like that diagnosis. LOL Hopefully he'll say something like that. Tomorrow, I"m going to be sore, but not broken. I can be grateful about that. :)

Ouch! Sounds quite like a fall I had four or five weeks ago, apart from hitting an elbow. I know exactly what you mean about lying there feeling helpless! You didn't have to lie there too long?

Apart from my knee, I wasn't too sore the following day, so I'm sure you won't be either. (((hugs)))

I couldn't get up right away, so I laid there like ten minutes, getting my bearings. Felt stupid more than anything else. I'm doing fine tonight. Not as stiff, so I'm thinking it won't be too bad tomorrow.

Yeah - shock comes into it, you lie there and don't actually want to move for a few minutes. Good that you're not stiff right now, though you might stiffen up overnight. :-(

You look after yourself!

One of my biggest fears is falling!!

I'm so glad you weren't seriously hurt, but still, take care!

Thank you, Grey. I sure didn't like it and I had a hard time getting up. So I don't want to do that again. I'm being extra careful of my actions now.

Being careful, that's all you can do!

Yeah. Those dull days do look good from time to time, don't they?

So glad you're okay. Do TRY to follow doctor's advice about being careful and keep us posted on the MRI results, etc.

Thank you for the well wishes. I've got an appointment for more blood work tomorrow. I'm feeling like a pin cushion. LOL Oh well, whatever works.

Oh, ow! Oh, Patt, I'm so sorry to read this. What a horrible shock for you - and down onto cement too. :o( I hope your aches and pains ease off soon, and that the doctor can figure out what's wrong ASAP. ::gentle hugs::

Thank you, sweetie. Today I'm not as sore as yesterday, so there is that. :)
