I broke the middle finger on my right hand when the garage door fell on it.

None that I know of, surprisingly!

My worst gymnastics injury was a pinched nerve in the lower back that hurt to the touch for 6 months and took a year and a half to fully heal. Now I only feel it after lifting heavy things.

I may have broken the big toe on my left foot. I jacked it up real bad one day at gymnastics. It turned black and purple for a while and hurt SO BAD I had to keep it above my heart for three days. Then it got all swollen and started draining pus and blood for a week....it was really nasty, took a week or two before I could try to bend it. Now when I stub it, it tends to swell up like it's really sensitive. Who knows.

i broke my arm when i was three. i was pushed off a jungle gym and fell on it. i apparently cried myself to sleep at the daycare. the doctor didn't think it was broken because there was no bruise. no xray. i cried every time my mom would raise my arm to dress me when she took me to the er (this was like a day later) and they said it was broken. it wasn't a severe break or anything, i just had a sling, no cast.

i don't really remember anything except what my mom's told me. so i guess that's a good thing! get better soon zootb!

I was on a five day holiday in Las Vegas visiting family and attending a rockabilly weekender last April. Outside the casino as I was making my way over to the taxi area I slip on the wet stone that paves the driveway.....*CRACK*.....I land on my ass but in the process of falling some how I fracture my left ankle and leg. Not exactly the ending I was hoping for.

I got hit by a car (a 69' caddy) in Costa Mesa while at work back in 1999(very awful story ) and I didn't break a single bone. Though I did dislocate my left knee, one very deep laceration on my right outer thigh, small puncture wounds on my upper arms and just general soft tissue damage all over. Well, I'm alive so the aches and pains I still have are a small price to pay.....

Me after surgery on my ankle/leg. I have a rod in my leg and a plate at my ankle. And I do set off the airport metal detectors now.

I think i've broken 2 or 3 toes, but i never went to the doctor to know for sure, but I'm pretty sure they were broken. I can't remember whether i've broken one or both of my second toes, cause I always stub them instead of my big toe because they are longer

Fell over my balcony 2 stories up when I was 10 or 11. triped on my sisters hot wheels volts wagon. My head was on the dirt butt was on the concreit doc said if I had landed the other way around I would have cracked my skull open. Only ended up with a broken wrist. when I got home from the hospital I beat the hell out of my sister who has never broken a bone in her life.

No broken bones, but I did sprain my wrist and pull tendons in my hand when I fell on it. I was just walking and tripped; I'm a klutz.

That's scary! I used to do trampolining with a guy who also fell, but he actually DID land on his head and spent months in a coma.

I broke my big toe, tripping over a shoe. They set it without numbing it and I nearly threw up.

I think I broke my nose, but it never bled, so I don't know if I really broke it. All I know is that it swelled up black and blue, and has a bump/crook in it.

Just a broken nose. I was playing a game (?) with my Mum and run into the archetrave. My nose kept bleeding for about a week. Other than than the nose thing, only a sprained ankle - though I did feel a 'pop' when it happened. For all the falls I've had, I guess I just have really strong bones!
