Oh my goodness! Tonight we took Emily to her swim lessons and it rained earlier today,so the ground was wet and a little muddy. Well,while Emily was in lessons we walked over to the park(it's RIGHT next to the pool) and let Ryan play. I had my lawn chair and I set it up by the fence and watched. When swim was over they call for all the parents to come in and get their child. Emily was frantic running out because she wanted to play at the park like Ryan was. As I am going back to the park again,I hit a wet spot and my footing was off. I fell completly on my back. I laid there for about 3 minutes,for my dh to help me get up and then I felt OK. But since getting home,my whole body aches. My neck and head are KILLING me now. I feel like crapola BIGTIME! It could have happened to anyone,the fall. But I have been falling more and more in the past 6-9 monthes. I fall on stairs,in the shower,just walking from the livingroom to the kitchen. My balance is way off or something...common thing in MS. Time for my heating pad....urgh....

Aww as a former massage therapist, I'd have recommended a little bit of a cooling pad to reduce any swelling that may have occurred. Your body spasmed when you fell. It's something your body does to protect itself against immediate danger. It over reacts and now your whole body is going to be achy because your muscles were just shocked. But because they were shocked like that, it leaves your body open to bruise easily. Cold can reduce the swelling and heat caused by the bruising. That's why I'd recommend it. Heat isn't bad, but it might take longer for your body to heal if you use heat.

I hope you are feeling better soon!

Think of it this way, when you were a kid and you fell and hurt yourself, what the first thing a doctor would tell your parents to do....put an ice pack on it. It's the same thing It is an old remedy but it works!
