Right Leg Mayhem

Recommended Posts

First of all don't take this the wrong way but I'm not happy to be back, after thinking I conquered my HA fears once again. 

This last weekend has been Hell on my right leg. For starters, yesterday morning my knee wanted to give me trouble and to a degree, still does now, but the night before I did a kick while dancing to some 80s music videos which I think might have caused it. Last night though while I was leaving the kitchen after dinner, I kicked my big toe onto what I'd soon discover was a toothpick. I thought it just poked it but then thought there might have been a splinter and started squeezing and feeling for a splinter after seeing what looked like a bruise on the tip of my toe. Lastly there's a pain in my thigh which is radiating from my knee. 

I had spent a lot of yesterday and today doing yard work to pass the time during quarantine so maybe that could explain it? Also about the big toe, if it happened to be a splinter that I couldn't removed, am I screwed? Will I succumb to sepsis or any other disease? I want to avoid seeking medical help given the overbooked hospitals and doctor offices locally.

Oh no! I'm sorry your struggling so badly. You will not get sepsis or some other disease. It sounds like you hit a nerve in your toe. Try to soak it in hot bath water so if there is any splinter in it that it'll soak to the top and rise out.

I'm starting to think it isn't a splinter, but why would I have a bruise there from poking it? Would it be the force?

Update: My knee and thigh don't hurt as much. Still sore but nothing I can't manage with rest. 

The toe situation on the other hand is stressing me out. I'm afraid if I have a splinter and it's still painful and red I'm developing an infection and could die from something so stupid.
