    The other day i caused severe busing to my lower thigh, and now the area seems like, has nerve damage. I can only feel pressure when i touch it, not heat or cold or anything like that. Is that normal with severe busing?

    This is how the injury occurred:
    I am on stage crew for my school play, and was pulling on a fly-line for a set piece. For those of you who don't know, fly lines are heavily weighted pulleys used for moving set pieces up and out of sight from the audience. I was flying out a piece, (lifting it up out of sight), and it was very poorly weighted, and the weights were coming down fast, yet i still had control of them. They first hit my head, but that didn't cause much injury because it really only grazed me. but then, i guess instinctively, let go of the rope to cradle my head. At this time I was crouched down, and the weights, determined to be about 450 pounds, slammed into my leg. It was about two inches up from my knee cap.

    I'm 16 years old, and I have a very petite frame. I'm five foot two and I weigh only 105 pounds, if that.

    I tried to put this in the most relevant section, but still, this seams to be the wrong one.
