I've got Ménière's disease & in the middle of an attack. This morning I surfed down the stairs on my back without my feet touching any of them <sob>.

Currently have shingles. Broke my ankle in October. Can’t remember the last time I wasn’t in pain!

Recently diagnosed with menieres disease although symptoms are quiet at the moment apart from an inability to walk in a straight line.
Last injury was when I fell off my bike in Nov last year and bruised my leg. Gave the people in the bus stop some free entertainment.

Flu over Christmas, first Flu in 20 years......hot water bottle burst in my lap and gave me third degree burns over my legs.

I trapped my little finger in the loft ladder when putting it away at work today. It's a bit bruised and swollen.
I'm trying to pretend I didn't as I can't be bothered to fill out the accident book and my colleagues will laugh

Smashed tib and fib as a result of an assault at work.

MurielsBottom Wed 14-Feb-18 20:08:09

Oh, scurry that sounds very traumatic!

Kidney infection a fortnight ago.

New UTI started 7am yesterday... I'm waiting on urgent urology diagnostics and probably surgery sad

Dysentery, rather unpleasant.

Mimi I feel your pain!

I’m 35 weeks pregnant, and have had a deep chesty cough for 2 weeks that just will not clear.

I’m constantly coughing up so much phlegm, day and night - but it’s never ending.

I can’t take any expectorants to ease phlegm out, so I’m having to take paracetamol to deal with the resulting discomfort instead. I rest as much as I can, constantly sip water, and I’m drinking copious amounts of it daily, as well as hot drinks. I also apply a warm wheat pillow to my chest about 3-4 times per day, suck on eucalyptus cough sweets, and steam my nose 1-2 times per day. I also make sure I go for a walk, as it’s supposed to help, but I feel dreadful. We went on an hour long car journey today, and despite drinking water the whole time, every minute or less, I was coughing terribly and having to spit everything into tissues - which makes me feel extremely gross.

I was already suffering from rib pain and heartburn, but the constant coughing has aggravated these too. It’s wearing me out.

Couldn't recall the last illness. Haven't had so much as a cold in over 2 years.

Last injury of note was a sprained ankle with partially torn ligaments, which I got from an incident at one of those indoor trampoline centres. It took around 3 months for the swelling to go down enough for me to put normal shoes on.

Goldensunnydays81 Thu 15-Feb-18 04:33:20

Last injury was falling down some slate steps in the rain resulting in the biggest bruise I have ever had covering most of my bum!! Sitting down was painful for a while.
Latest illness was the flu, with an infection and complications from my diabetes which ended up with an ambulance ride, 2 nights in intensive care plus a further 2 nights in hospital, was pretty horrible.

Last illness was a really bad cold just after Xmas which kept me out of action for a week.

Currently have a sprained ankle after slipping in mud on a canal bank. Will never trivialise a sprain again.

Injury: I pulled something on the inner side of my knee doing yoga a couple of months ago and it still hurts a bit occasionally when I've had it bent for a long time, or slept in the foetal position.

Illness: sickness and diarrhoea nearly a year ago, only lasted a few hours but interfered with my plans to go to a demo I really cared about.

Fairylea Sat 17-Feb-18 21:04:22

Last illness was a severe chest infection that went on for 3 weeks with 3 lots of antibiotics. Horrible!

Last injury - burning my mouth drinking hot chocolate that was much too hot but ds aged 5 was rushing me so I just gulped without thinking! shock

Rescheduled our annual ski trip at a pretty significant cost as we all had that awful flu virus for the whole of Christmas, only to smash my wrist on the second day...

Natsku Sat 17-Feb-18 21:17:42

Well I gave birth last week and reckon my fanjo got pretty injured in the process! And suffered a haemorrhage and uterine infection. Fun week.

Prokupatuscrakedatus Sun 18-Feb-18 20:06:14

Last illness: a UTI in January

Last injury: cut (about 10 cm) from a cutter because I forgot my leg was under the cardboard I was cutting up for recycling.
