OK old timers, lets talk about what hurts.
I have what is left over from a cold and my foot hurts from an old injury.

1. I got my car stuck on some ice today and it hurts to be so stupid
Hubby came to get me and rock the car out of the dilemma. :/

4. Yeah, stuff happens
I thought I was over it until I read your posting. Reminded me of how "the stupid - it hurts!" :D

Feel better, texanwitch. Seems like whenever a cold hits old injuries start grumbling.

3. My right knee.
I have gout in it and now an infection. Taking antibiotics that make me want to vomit.

13. Thanks, it is painful.
I've had it in my ankles for years. It recently went into my knee, just after a bout of bursitis in the left hip.

8. That sounds awful.
I can't get infections, knock on formica.

Currently, there's something in my right wrist that I hope is only tendonitis. Inconvenient because I was making a crocheted creche for the nephews, one the toddlers can handle without being nagged at or without fear of breaking anything. I've always taken my good health for granted. Not any more. :)

21. I share your gout affliction.
Gout is terrible! And because I have celiacs disease I cannot take non-steroidal anti-inflammation drugs. If I have an attack I must take prednisone. Needless to say I watch my diet.

Take care. I hope are feeling better soon.

10. Left foot, not sure why, trying insoles.
Maybe losing a few pounds would help.

Hot tub soaks are nice.

:P

11. My hurt comes from a bad sprain that never healed right.
I have a velco sports brace I wear for a few days, it goes away.

16. Sinus pain.
Weather change. When that goes away something else will hurt.

17. Nothing hurts right now,
but I just got back from the ophthalmologist and in February I'm having cataracts removed and corneal transplants. Woo-hoo. Actualloy, they don't transplant the whole cornea, just the back ... it's some kind of new procedure. I have what is called Fuchs' Corneal Dystrophy.

I can't even imagine how cool it's going to be to be able to see clearly. I won't have to rely so much on autofocus when I take pictures. :)
