A strange question
I know how odd this sounds, but here goes. On Friday afternoon, I had an injury to my right lower leg that seemed to have no discernable cause. I got up from my desk to go home from work, walked down the hall, and by the time I got to the stairwell, my calf muscle felt like it was severely pulled.

I have a meditation partner who told me tonight that he had the same kind of injury on Friday evening while moving a tv on a cart. And he said he's heard quite a few stories recently of spiritually aware people he knows who have had foot or leg injuries in the last week or so. Has anyone out there in DU land experienced this or heard about it?

2. I've had several leg and foot injuries
That were unexplainable, until I was diagnosed with arthritis in my low back, and the disks were pinching my nerves.

Seriously, I got up one morning, and thought I had a broken foot, but x-rays showed nothing. I couldn't walk, but physical therapy cleared it up.

A disease only afflicting spiritually aware people? I'd call it mental illness or a cult.

3. "Charly horse," perhaps...
its just the pinching of a nerve. I had a bad on in my right calf today.

4. I don't see an "injury" in this scenario. Only a symptom.
But, if I were you, I wouldn't take this sitting down. You may not have a leg to stand on. But that doesn't mean you should just walk away from this thing.

:smoke:

6. love your name...I've read it in only one context....the lead-up to the
30 years war is called in one book 'Defenestration in Bohemia'....one side threw some of the other side out the window (2nd story)....they landed in a manure pile so weren't physically hurt...at least that's the way I remember the story

I like the word because of the Latin base showing up the French word for window (fenetre....don't know how to do the circumflex--sp?--over the 2nd e) and the German (Fenster)

BTW, who do you plan/want to defenestrate????
