Something quite odd happened... Answered

Ok so I had some trouble sleeping the other night, in fact I had an awful lot of trouble and ended up not sleeping for for near enough 48 hours, not unusual for me considering all the stuff happening but read on...

I had sprained or stretched almost every muscle in my upper body before this happened and it had been hurting like hoohah just to move, I sit up reading etc for several hours and then descend to start the monrings activities and I noticed that all of a sudden everything has healed, even the massive pain in my shoulder from a fight during which my arm got twisted to almost dislocation...

Any theories on why this might have happened, the only thing I can think of is the fact that by being awake and not moving too much it was like sleep as far as healing goes but my metabolism was higher since I wasn't sleeping... Does that sound plausible?

Ehm...

  • You only thought you were in pain, when you got up your body ran a diagnostics and found you were fine
  • Beer has healing affects, just takes awhile for it to start in species such as killerjackalopes

Umm he shoved me, I headbutted him, it went from there pretty quickly, I got a boot to the stomach and then slammed him in to a wall, he got my arm and had it up my back bloody fast, tellin' ya, I thought I was scuppered I risked screwing my arm by going down further and pulling him over my back, it paid off and I smacked him in the face, he kicked me from the floor, kidneys in pain. We both recover and continue trying to kill eachother until I got a chance and lifted him, followed by being him being thrown in to a wall and stopping...

You happy now....

i think your muscles just streched back into place. if you stretched them all, they probably just went back, like a rubber band does... talk to your doc.

Only thing I could possibly think of is that you dislocated your arm during the fight and during the night it popped back into place. I don't know if you've ever dislocated anything before, but it messes up everything around the area of dislocation. When it pops back in, the pain often disappears.

It definitely wasn't dislocated when it was painful later on, I have toes that dislocate of their own accord and stuff like that, I know the feeling pretty well, plus my movements weren't impaired enough to make me think dislocation, just pulled muscles...

I get that a lot, where I can barely move, then after a little sleep or sitting one one comfortable (read: least painful) position for a while and just chilling, I'm back to my normal self. I've also found myself in so much pain that the pain just stopped a couple of times. It's possible that your body ran out of neurotransmitters for pain, or your brain decided it had had enough of that crap. Or maybe you're a little like Wolverine.

  • even the massive pain in my shoulder from a fight during which my arm got twisted to almost dislocation...

In my experience, when you actually dislocate your shoulder, it always feels MUCH better immediately after being re-located. Perhaps you had something "out of place" that switched back. Also, internal injuries like dislocated joints have funny connections to nerves, so it's at least somewhat possible that a single injury was causing "aches and pains all over", so when that got fixed you felt better all over.

This will be familiar to anyone who regularly "throws out" any part of their body. One moment you can be in pain, and the next, everything feels better.

That does sound plausible. It's better than anything I can think of. That's good that it doesn't hurt anymore though.
