Playing with a Ti just lazily throwing going though some default motions, lost in thought, mentally elsewhere, doing my usual “dialed in but usually only do it on auto pilot” sequences when in the middle of one move, the throw and the back of my hand met.
Now ive had hundreds of knuckle busters, finger whackers, nail stubbers, some of them at alarmingly high speed / heavy impact. And they would hurt! but not like this…
This was not one of those hits. This was a low speed, mild, I would almost want to call it a grazing blow, but, the tiny impact area, (the rim of the Tundra) nestled in between my index and middle fingers’ bone on the back of the hand. It straight knocked the wind out of me. It hurt so bad I had some trouble breathing normally for a minute. After a couple minutes the fierceness subsided and it felt ok, until I, for instance, put my hand down on the couch to help me stand up (god, I sound old) and WHAM! that pain was back and heavier than ever!
Now every now and then I move my hand just wrong and it hits me like a sack of bricks, but fades quickly. I have it wrapped to remind me not to use it, Holy Crap!
Im no stranger to injury. Im no stranger to pain. Ive endure more than my fair share of getting hurt, and most of the time, I deserved it. I earned it. I could clearly see the Folly = Pain ratio of most of my past injury, but this one baffles me.
The amount of pain vs the impact zone and speed is very much off balance. Maybe i smashed a vein? Squished a nerve? Its all in the soft area in bewteen the bones. There is little redness and no bruising today (this happened last night) so im just confused i guess.
Giving it a few days rest. Just wanted to share.
