    A freak accident during sparring. I busted my meniscus. Took over a year for it to heal completely. But I went back to some sparring two months after the accident anyway. Not at the club but at a place where I could train with my friend. And I've had an injury to my elbow which lasted several months.

    But the worst injury of all? I have a strained thumb from vale tudo sparring. It NEVER heals. Hurts like a mfer whenever it is pushed against something (body, head whatever). It's been like that forever.

    Hey dude, at least I know I'll get through it! Thanks for posting your injury, I feel like, less hard-done-by now. 6 weeks ain't squat, right? It sucks, but it'll be okay. I just wish getting outta bed didn't hurt so much!

    6 fucking weeks cause of fucking basketball. Hopefully they take this bitch ass cast off my hand on monday but i feel pain sometimes so i dont know. I was having so much fun in BJJ too. The only positive thing that came from this injury is that my backhand in handball is fucking wicked, and being on my computer logged to sherdog typing with one hand.. yay[/bitching]

    Week and a half with a sprained muscule near my shoulder blade. I couldn't move my head more than a few inches if my life depended on it. With a little chiropractic help and some massage, I was good enough to get back on the mats. How not to have that happen? Be 100% warmed up and be careful rolling to guard from the turtle with new guys if you're not warm yet.

    4 months......nerve injury to my elbows from resisting arm bars....I satrted getting numbness and tingling in my (R) pinky and weakness in my hand.Then my left followed suit and I had nerve conduction tests and pinpointed that the problem was at the bend of my elbows.

    Lesson: don't be a dick, tap to arm bars when they're on

    Broke a rib. I laid on the couch on my opposite for 8 months. Rib injuries fucking blow hurts to do anyhting that involves breathing. Advice, keep elbows in tighter when sparring.
