Default Extreme Elbow pain!! HELP!!

So today I was at the park practicing some rails, so then I decided to try a front side rail slide on the the skinny'er rail instead of the box which is moronic... But anyways I fell directly on the rail with my elbow, and it hurt so badly that I felt sick to my stomach, so I sat down for a while and decided I should goto the lodge to look at it.. As I was trying to make it the rest of the way down my vision was blacking out I could hardly stay awake because of the pain. So I just sat back down and took my helmet off, finally I felt like I could make it the rest of the way. So I got in and my elbow was bleeding thru my shirt, and my elbow has a huge bump on it. So I went to the medical center, they looked at it and since I could somewhat bend it they don't think it was broken but I rather bruised the bone. Has this ever happen to anyone before or something similar... or does anyone think they know whats wrong with my elbow. I should take a picture and post it but it hurts so bad to bend I don't want to take my shirt off again..and its wrapped with cotton stuff.. I have no insurance...lol so I really hope its just badly bruised or something..

Right now it feels fine as long as I don't bend it at all, and its still swollen...

ive bruised my calf so bad i was on crutches for a week. playin hockey i slid into the boards with my right skate behind my left calf and slammed legs first while on a breakaway.i hate to be a downer but seeing as your in michigan and we only got a few weeks left...your park season is pretty much over, the pain of falling back onto it owuld be excruciating. you could probably still ride if your a good rider but i wouldnt risk the park until its healed

Yeah, if u can bend it, it's most likely severly bruised. I know the feeling, it sucks. Just keep your arm straight and try not to use it to much and u should be better in a few weeks.

Yea, its sucks but I will see how it feels in the next few days I want to get back out bad I can handle going up and down easily enough just kinda boring.. I guess I can always just work more on buttering and stuff, less risky things.. Did you think something was broken at first the pain was soo bad?

btw this is me (Brandon) snowboarding...
YouTube - First time Snowboarding WATCH!

was gonna get more footage today but I hurt my elbow on like the fifth run, any constructive criticism would be appreciated

I'm not very good this was my first year snowboarding but so far what you think? I am tempted to rip this bandage off and take a picture of my elbow but idk hurts soo bad to move

Yeah at first I thought it was broken because it was so swollen that I couldn't bend it. As for your video, damn thats really good for your first year. You're defenitly better than alot of people that have only been riding for a year. I know u don't have insurance, but if the pain or swelling doesn't go away in a week or so, I would suggest seeing a doctor and maybe getting x-rays because breaking an elbow is a very serious thing.

Yea I agree with that but thats my last option... I can't even imagine that bill without insurance with how out of wack our health care system is..

Thx for saying it wasnt bad I feel like I suck when I see these kids pulling off 720s and corks in front of me

I slid off an icy ramp and did a butt plant on a patch of ice a few weeks ago and I think I bruised my tailbone. It sux, the pain still hasn't completely gone away but it is feeling better.
Bone bruises take some time to heal, but you should be good to get back on a snowboard before too long.... unless it's broken.
Since you don't have insurance, I would try to live with it for a couple days. If it gets too painful I'd bite the bullet and get an xray. Just my $.02

I know how you feel man, I once got jumped in a park late at night and had my elbow smashed by a crowbar. I was pretty drunk at that point so it didn't hurt that bad haha. Putting on and taking off shirts and stuff is a bitch when you can hardly bend your elbow.
Pretty much like everyone else is saying, just give it some time and it should heal up just fine.

I bruised my ribs 3 weeks ago trying to boardslide a fallen tree. Last week I forgot to move my phone from the outside-chest pocket on my jacket. I caught an edge hard while buttering and now I can barely breathe. If I sneeze it feels like I am about to black out.


Let the injury heal, and avoid reinjuring the same spot...
