How did you injure your #knee? How did it feel? What were the symptoms following your #injury? Are you about to go through #surgery? Comment down below!
One of the things I discovered at an early age was that I have a high tolerance for pain. My pain threshold is quite high, so I don’t mind injuries that much. I started training martial arts when I was 7 years old. Later on, I began playing basketball, and soon after, I took on skateboarding, which eventually turned to longboarding.
I took this picture the day I got injured because I knew something was weird after I jumped and felt something off. I just took a couple of extra steps running, and I felt pain in my knee. I kept practicing #basketball for a couple of minutes more and stopped and went to get it checked. A physical trainer and a nurse advised me on following #RICE (Rest, Ice, Elevation, Compression) over the weekend and going to the doctor if the pain persisted.
On Monday morning, I felt three intense bursts of pain as I got out of the shower. It felt as if someone was piercing me with a hot nail on my kneecap. The #pain irradiated quickly up and down my knee, and then it disappeared. Not before leaving me curled up and tears rolling down my face. That was the first official day of this process I now share with you guys.
