      We are only midway through the 2nd trimester, so don't know the expected date yet!

      I recently got kicked by a horse (occupational hazard) into my right side under my ribs, above my hip, no bones broken luckily. I had a slight bleed in my kidney and had a night in hospital for observation. It was sore but far from excruciating, I took a few days off work and went back (admittedly too soon). There was slight muscle damage and deep internal bruising, and through the ins and outs of the job I aggrevated the muscle injury and at the same time suffered from some bad muscle spasms. Another few days off plus some muscle relaxers and pain killers. I am generally fine now, but it will be a month since the incident and I still suffer from pain from my side, mainly at rest, I am fine when I'm up and moving. I'm finding myself falling asleep in the same position each night just to accommodate the pain. It's been going on for a while obviously and I'm not a fan of pills so I've weaned myself off the pain killers.

      I am usually very good at understanding my own body and my own healing time. I'm not Macho man rushing things, saying I'm fine when I'm not, but I know the initial injury wasn't bad. But I feel like I should be over this by now. Has anyone had anything similar? Or have any ideas?

      Ribs and the lattice of interconnecting muscle and tissue around them are a bi*ch. 5 weeks after my bike accident, everything else if fine,  but not my ribs and certain movements, especially sideways ones. I don't like taking the painkillers either, refused them at hospital, which was a mistake.

      Thanks Rodders, just needed some reassurance. Like I say I'm usually very good at judging these things but this has me quite frustrated.

      I once flexed the cartilage in by rib cage, that took three-four months to heal. I'm hoping this is quicker.

      This time I cycled in to a cement truck, dented it with my head. Also fu**ed up my bike, nearly as bad as my ribs.

      There's a joke in there somewhere but now isn't the time! :P

      Genuinely hope you're as well as you can be after something like that mate.

      Apart from the ribs and some side effects from my second concussion in eight months, I'm well. You keep safe as well, though better a horse kick than a donkey punch.

      Had an emergency appointment today and had the start of a root canal done. Was inflamed and infected so it's got some antibiotic thing and a temp filling or something and now have 2x 1 hour appointments for the the rest of it. Still hurts a bit but that could be a mixture of where the infection was, having the work done today I guess. As it goes was actually pain free last night, but today it was one tooth untouchable instead of pain along the gum like before, must have been coming off of that tooth the other day or something.

      Tell you what though, I've had broken bones and torn ligaments that have been less painful that the other day!

      Currently suffering with Psoriasis in two spots, around one of my elbows and slighty on arm and just above ankle.

      Cream on to try and take away itching feeling, but painful like a motherfucker!!
