    Yep........I thought I just sprained it but went to my orthopedic doc.....And I broke it.

    I am in this HUGE BLACK JEDI BOOT.....I asked him for another for my right leg so I can be Darvada (SP) for Halloween seeing I'm stuck in it for 6 weeks.

    It is so heavy....I got up to answer the phone leg fell asleep Foot went one way leg another......He believes it will take longer to heal due to my FM and OA...

    I am going to a cardiologist today to see why my left leg and arm always fall asleep.....Also EKG last year was fine this years shows I had a heart attack......I never felt it so who knows.I think the EKG is wrong...

    I am sooooo sorry to hear you broke your ankle, what a thing to happen, I wish a speedy recovery. Hear attack???? at your age???? and you didn't even feel it??? I guess it's possible, there are people in the world who had a mini stroke and didn't even know they had it. Please take care of yourself.

    Love to all, Ann

    Fall off your skateboard? Bungy jumping? Tsk, tsk, you kids!

    Hope it heals up w/ no complications. I never heard of someone having a heart attack and not knowing something was wrong.

    Just get a Darth Vadar mask and you'll be all set for Halloween.

    Seems like a short time ago that Star Wars was new. My 7 year old loved that movie. We saw it about 20 times.

    Ok, try to stay on your wheels!

    I broke mine several years ago. I just fell over and it broke. I kept trying to think of a good story for how I broke it. Skiing, snowboarding, jet ski, whatever. Never came up with one!

    Those boots are so stylish! If you are frustrated you can always tear at the velcro!

    Get well quickly and I hope you can find that Darth Vadar mask!

    so sorry to hear you broke it! I've been in a cast before, it's no fun trying to get around even when you're healthy.

    Your idea of having a matching boot for other foot is not a bad one, I've never understood why/how one is expected to walk around for 6 weeks or more on uneven legs! All I can say is, if you have a chiropractor, visit regularly so your spine doesn't go outta whack too. Or at least some regular massages.

    Sending many healthing thoughts your way!

    all the best,
    Victoria

    Oh poor you. Though I have to tell you that breaks sometimes heal faster than sprains BTW. But still....

    What!!! Are they sure they read the machine right??? I would definately ask for a retake on another machine. PLus what sort of heart attack?

    Listen I was once told the same thing about a blood test I had, and was scared senseless then it turns out the nurse got it all wrong.

    Sometimes women test with the Qt facing the wrong way for no particular reason anyone can fathom.

    Please let us know what the heart doc says.

    Love Anne
