Injuries Can be Deceptive - Gina Merceri on Chive Charities
Imagine that you're in a car accident. You walk away with only a hairline fracture in your arm. The injury seems straightforward, and sure enough it heals. After a few weeks, however, the pain in your arm gets worse, not better. It's so bad that it feels like your arm is on fire. Then the pain spreads – from your arm to your leg to your shoulder. It doesn't go away and soon affects your sleeping and even your breathing. When you finally receive a diagnosis, the doctors tell you there is no cure.
