    Lately, my big toe on both feet have been feeling as if they are sprained or something. If I stand on the balls of my feet, I feel strain and a little bit of pain.

    Right now, stretching and manipulating the joint helps a bit, but I'm considering a trip to the orthopedist to see if there's anything more serious, and to get some possible exercises.

    Yes
    How did it happen?
    It was a cumulative thing.
    What are you doing about it?
    I have a doctor, on pain meds when it gets really bad, I live with it.

    Besides my chronic bitchiness.
    I have a bad left knee and lower back due to a curveture of the spine.
    BUT lately its my dislocated finger that is getting on my tits !!
    And I just found out that it can take up to 4 months for it to get back to normal ( full ROM and no swelling).

    Herniated lumbar discs (2). Done doing yard work about 7 years ago. Judo and MMA grappling made it worse, due to my disregard for same.

    I was in physical therapy to avoid the knife, may have to go back and / or see the dr. I do exercises at home but they are of limited utility. I am trying to figure out what regular exercise to do to help me. I'd like to do some kind of MA, but my grappling career may be behind me. The pain is bad enough that it's hard to get around, but not so bad that I can't move at all. I take Advil sometimes and have had narcotics prescribed (hydrocodone) but for chronic pain, it would just make you a junkie, so I don't ask for it anymore.

    Boo hoo. Sniffle. Woe is friggin' me.

    Actually, if I can partially hijack, has anyone here gotten hurt bad enough that they had to stop training in a certain art and do something else? What happened and what did you switch to? Why? I hope this is in keeping with the spirit of RM's thread. Mea culpa if it's not.
    I dork harder than any of you can imagine.

    Hips.....years of playing soccer.
    Rehab...squats, slowly, very slowly going up in weight. Stopped doing so many flying slide tackles.
    Better include ankles and knees in that, though my actual muscles are rather powerful.

    Wrists....somewhat of a challenge fight against Angry-Monkey when I went to train at his place for a bit. Clinched, I 'got' the takedown and was on top. I couldn't move my right hand at all, got up, kept sparring, figured it was just a sprained wrist. A week after the sprain had healed, another part was hurting, an X-ray revealed a fracture on the outside bone of my forearm which I forget the name of.

    Apparently resistance exercises using the full ROM doesn't help.
    Rather it inflames it.....so...grip exercises are definately helping.

    Poor circulation in my feet. If they're not compressed with socks (or preferably boots), they go cold and numb very quickly.
    Fix = wear boots or socks when rolling.

    My left knee is fucked from being hit by a car. My right knee is fucked from compensating for the left knee.
    Fix = stop doing martial arts, hiking, larping, breathing.

    I have mild arthritis in my fingers. **** knows where thats from.
    Fix = live in constant pain.

    Everything else is also damaged to some degree or another, with the possible exception of my spleen. But thats only because I don't know what my spleen does.
