Hows That For Pain Tolerance

My wrist has been hurting since last Friday, don't know what I did and it was just a sudden pain.

Well yesterday I couldn't take the pain anymore. It was painful to just move it let alone do anything else.

So I went to Urgent care to see what was up.

I knew it wasn't arthritis related because it was a different pain and I haven't had pain their before.

It seems I have a hairline fracture in my wrist. Yep, I went a week with a hairline fracture in my wrist before doing anything about it.

They put me in a splint, which is a pain in the ass because it's my right wrist and I am right handed.

I have no idea what I did, don't remember hitting it or even an ouch. Although with the meds I am on I don't usually get ouchies for a day or two after they happen.

The urgent care doc was an ass. I go in and was explaining the pain to him and saying it's not arthritis pain,etc, etc and he says "well what do you want me to do about it".

Hey dick head, I am not the doctor. I tell him I want to make sure it's not fractured or something like that and he says it's probably not fractured. When the x-rays came back showing a hairline fracture he says "well it's a hairline fracture but since it's small were just going to say it's a bad sprain"

Won't be going back to that Urgent care again.

OMG! Wonder how you did it? I'd be a little disgruntled with the urgent care doc...

Feel better!
