I've been wondering this for years
When I was 7, I broke my arm, and as crazy as this sounds, I still don't know how. There has to be a logical explanation. I was wondering if anyone had an idea?
I was at the playground, and I was crawling across the monkey bars [I don't know what everyone else calls them, but more or less its a horizontal ladder with legs]. And my arm just literally broke--both bones, mind you. I didn't slip, fall, twist it, bend it in an unusual way, or anything else.
4 Things of note
~The motion of my hand/wrist- My arm and hand were in a pretty straight line, but at the moment of the break, my hand was slightly up (as if doing as pushup, but more towards the straight side.) After the break, though, my hand was pointed down in a really grotesque-looking way, and it hurt to much to even try to move it out of that position. Eurgh!
~ I had some sort of hallucination when I heard it break: I saw the bar that my hand was on break and my hand go through the rungs, then it switched back to normal. The only actual/physical change was the hand/wrist, mentioned above.
~ I the breaks were about 2 inches below my wrist.
~ I was not overweight--at all, so I think we can rule that out.
Anyone have any ideas/theories? If you do, fire away =)
Thanks for reading, and I'd really appreciate it if you take the time to respond. =)
(Oh, and the doctor never said [to me] how he thought it broke. He may have to my mom, but when I asked her a little bit ago, she said she didn't remember)
