Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Right, playing Rugby this morning I took a proper shoeing! At the time it wasn't to bad and I finished the game but I'm in clip now! The small of my back over to one side, pretty much at the apex of my Iliac Crest, is killing me. I can't bend over and I'm even walking funny now.

    It doesn't feel like a pull or a strain and there's no bruising... :?

    I don't fancy schlepping off to see my Doc if I can deal with it myself. What do you think it could be?

    Thanks in advance,

  2. Are you front row?
  3. Go sick you plonker. If you can't walk properly you need to seek medical advice.
  4. haha! Haven't been called a plonker in years!! I can walk, just I look like an old man.

    I'm a back so the front row issue shouldn't affect me but I hit a few rucks so it might be something along those lines.

    I'll go sick in the morning if I'm still in bad shape so don't worry! :D

  5. I used to get the same sort of pain after a hard match. Quite common when scrummaging against someone very big/strong.

    You'll find that it will ease up over the next couple of days. Take a long hot bath, if you have a bird get her to give you a massage.
  6. Would you mind if I print this off and show her? :wink:

    I'm going to stick with brufen and a bath and see how it goes. I was just a bit worried because it's only on the one side.

  7. You'll be fine. One day you'll stop using hair products, become a man, and join the forwards. Until then.....grin and bare it :)
  8. How many forwards do you know that are under 5'9? haha! I'm quick and handsome, 11 is where I belong!

  9. Quite a few hookers are smaller than that.
  10. I've just asked the dog and he says you have a terminal disease and will die within the next week. He also said you are a midget, and at your age should not be playing rugby.

    The reason you will die, so the dog tells me, is because you bleated on the internet about having a twinge, and 41000+ people think you are a complete fanny and should man up and either see a doctor or take brufen.

    Hope this helps.

    Yours aye, Dale and her clever dog xxxx
  11. I think your dog is my flat mate...

    I'm just asking because both their answers are pretty much identical! Thanks for the concern dale.
