    Spine injury

    I stepped in a hole and feel right on my face. I think I got what the NFL calls a Stinger. My forearms and fingers tingle and hurt in a weird way. It's been 48 hours and I'm moving and walking. I hate going to the hospital unnecessarily. What should I take or do in a practical way to make nerves calm down?

    RE: Spine injury

    you can see a qualified doctor. no one on a forum is going to diagnose anything w/ any accuracy. i had the same sensation when i hit the fullback head-on in football practice, and ended up in a neck brace for 6 weeks. this is nothing to fool with. you could have a pending spinal chord injury because of a hard blow to the head and neck. you need images to verify no cracked bones, etc.
