    the entire flight. I still have no idea how I managed to miss that first step.
    Anyway. I of course had bruises. Lots of em. My back was covered.
    Here's the problem. My leg is still KILLING me!
    One specific spot. Above and to the left of my ankle my ankle.
    It hurts when I jog enough to make me feel like hurling. Rarely done.. but at work sometimes necessary.
    It hurts when I drive up the dirt road to the barn.

    If I go and get it checked I am afraid that they will put me in a cast. Even a soft one will make it impossible for me to work my job. And I only have a few more weeks left(June 19) til summer break. But I also dont need to be messing it up more. And I am deathly afraid of having to climb a fence or such and landing wrong on it.

    Please get it checked and taken care of now! If you let it go it might cause more problems in your future. Please?

    Let me tell you, you're very lucky. 3 years ago I fell down a flight of stairs and it almost cost me my life. I ripped the entire right side of my face off, broke my cheekbone, crushed my right arm, crushed my nose. Needed 7 surgeries just to put my face back together. I also had brain injuries and had a stroke a year later due to the injuries.

    I'm with everyone else, please get checked out. You have no idea what you could have done to yourself.

    I didn't see mention of if it was back or front - but if it is in the back in the calf area get checked out immediately. It could be a blood clot.

    Oh, and if the previous description fits (blood clot), DO NOT RUB OR MASSAGE IT! You could cause it to break loose and lodge in your pulmonary artery.
