Injuries

Sounds like nerve damage.

The worst pain I ever had from a match was a kick to the back of the calf. Wasn’t too bad in the immediate aftermath of the game, but by 11pm that night I was crying in pain. There was nothing major wrong and cleared up after about 2 weeks.

Did you get this sorted? I just came in here to log something very similar when I spotted your post.

I overdid it fixing up a bit of heavy furniture last week and had a bit of sore back afterwards. Had a bit of pain in my back & glutes for the next few days but over the weekend have been getting really bad spasms/cramps on the outside of my calf when I stand or sit. Totally fine when I lie down. Went to physio but haven’t been making any great progress.

Yeah it cleared up but took two and a half weeks.

Strangely enough I played a championship match over the weekend and took and gave plenty of punishment and I’d say it was the first game ive played in three years where I didn’t have a pain or ache in my leg and even jogged the 3.5km back to the club the following morning for the car.


#1405

Yeah, coming around to the thought that I’ll just have to take it handy for a few weeks.

I was playing a game two weeks ago and landed awkwardly after winning a header, kind of came down with my leg fully extended. I felt a bit of a jerk in it at the time, there was only 10 or so minutes left so I played on although it wasn’t fully right in my movements.

Had a bit of swelling the day after and a slight bit of bruising near it though that could possibly be related to another unconnected knock.

I went for a run there this afternoon and I had a bit of soreness on the outside of my knee, running from where it connects with the calf up the outside of the knee joint. Nothing overly painful but just a bit sore and I don’t think the knee would be up to rigorous twisting and turning at the minute.

I’ve had bother with both knees before, I did my ACL on this particular knee and have suffered patellar dislocations on my opposite knee.

Is this likely to be cartilage or meniscus damage? I know you’re meant to get follow up surgery on the ACL knee to remove cartilage after a certain period of time.

You need to get mri.


#1408

All I could suggest is you stop posting on TFK indefinitely


#1409

Get a job.

Back is gone… It’s like a nerve feeling on lower left side…probably inflamed , most likely after carrying 3 slabs half way across Cork Thursday night… Nurefon not doing much here.


#1411

I’m fucking sick to the back teeth of telling you about your back. Will you just listen to me for once.


#1412

If you stick your thumb far enough up, you might be able to manipulate from the inside


#1413

I haven’t had an issue in over 18 months you wanker.


#1414

And now you’re crippled. Eaten bread is fast forgotten.


#1415

Hope you don’t die


#1416

You might have an ovarian cyst mate

The @ChocolateMice lad is some fairy. Moan moan whinge moan whinge and moan.
Ffs man up


#1418

Will I need a needle in my heel for it?


#1419

I’d say you could badly do with a serious needling mate


#1420

Some people never learn.

Heavy weights = spinal compression.

You have to build that spinal stability over time and squats deadlifts etc don’t do that alone.

You also need to learn to decompress after weight lifting

Took a heavy enough bang to knee in a match last Sunday. Knee swelled up a bit after the match but went down again after a couple of days. Little or no bruising and no real pain when I move/bend my knee or put weight on it but I have fairly intense pain when I touch the outside of my knee. Bad enough pain to wake me when asleep.

Anyone ever have something similar
