    I've had high ankle sprains, broken fingers, and other minor stuff. luckily nothing major.

    when i played baseball my coach told me to start pitching a certain way, and that fucked my elbow up, then a couple years later i was throwin javelin and heard a huge pop and my arm just sat there. Fuckin elbow killed and i couldn't throw again. Tennis elbow - bad.

    Since then I've had flare ups of tennis elbow when playing softball or baseball or throwing a football, but nothin too bad. In May this year my elbow started hurting after doin softball, my HIIT workouts and mma training. Since then it's gotten worse and worse and now I have a massage therapist and can't use my arms for at least 3 weeks, more if it doesn't get better.

    Easily the worst injury I've had since I can't use my upper body.

    On the plus side, I could kick a house over right now.

    Any of you got nagging injuries or bad injuries from sports or workouts? How did you deal with them?

    nothing really major.

    hip bursitis from running, pain went away after two weeks but i can still pop my right hip out a way it shouldn't. just took time off from running and stretched a lot.

    6 badly jammed fingers at once from a 12lb medicine ball getting thrown at me the wrong way... doing anything for the next week sucked. explaining to people why 6 of my fingers were jammed was also pretty embarrassing.

    I broke my ankle,leg and tail bone while skateboarding in 2005. Easily the worst injury ive ever had.I was unable to walk or sit down for the better part of 4 months,and i went against doctors orders with the healing process and rushed it a lil.My ass will go numb after sitting down within about a half hour,like painfully numb.LOL,its hilarious but that shit hurt.And my knee and ankle both pop out of joint every once in a while.

    Otherwise i was playing football with my cousins and one of them tried grabbing my catch on a "kick return" and he hit me directly on the hip bone with his head and my hip had a HUGE black and blue bruise on it for over a month.Didnt break anything that time,but it hurt like a bitch!

    Hope your arm gets better Zyclon.Wonder if they're going to suggest a surgery?...

    One time after partially tearing my rotator cuff I decided to try military presses behind my back.

    Luckily I was on a smith machine, anyways my shoulder popped out on the 3rd rep and was hurt for about 3 days.

    Other than that never really hurt lifting, I think one time I dropped like a 35 Lb. weight on my foot, I might have a slight fracture that acts up from time to time.

    I strained (nearly tore) my mcl two years in a row playing basketball in high school. Second time had to have arthroscopic knee surgery, and that pain was almost worse than the fucking sprain.

    Add to that a billion ankle sprains and shit. Nothing too bad.
