Fell on arm about a week ago, still can?t straighten it.
notrandom posted:
I was riding my bicycle and fell when I made too sharp of a turn while going too fast. From what I remember I landed on my wrist, but looking at my arm and how the elbow is swollen and in pain, I may have landed on that too.
On the night of the accident, after I got up I "tested" my arm for any major injuries. I moved it, twisted it, and applied pressure to it? I felt what I thought would be normal pain one would receiving after falling off a bike, so I assumed at worst I would really feel it in the morning. And I did. My arm couldn't bend correctly and it was in pain for about 5 days. On the 6h day my arm was no longer in pain except when I try to bend it or move it fast (e.g. when shaking a bottle).
I have got a gut feeling that everything is fine and my arm is just swollen, but I would really like the opinion of someone who may know more about this kind of injury.

Hi nostrandom,

Sorry for the late response, but I think that you should see a doctor if your arm is not bending correctly and you are in pain. Please do see your physician if you haven't already. Please keep us posted and I wish you the best!
