Markelle Fultz has had his share of injury issues. He had that “Thoracic Outlet Syndrome” (I cannot define any of those three words) that was allegedly destroying his shooting form. Lately he’s been dealing with cramping issues during games, which hasn’t caused him to miss many games, but has taken him out of some games in progress. I can relate to that one, as I am known on pickup basketball courts far and wide as “Mr. Cramps”.
My question is, has Fultz ever dealt with a toenail that’s about to fall off? Because I’m dealing with that right now and it’s got me completely freaked out.
I don’t even know what happened. Sometime last year my big toenail on my right foot started turning dark in sections, and there was a big crack in it. I continued to run on it and play basketball on it, and it didn’t get worse, so I ignored it. But now it’s gotten worse. I felt it break even more about a week ago, and when I looked at it closer, it had 2/3rds come off at the root of the nail. Then, I went for a run today, and when I took off my shoes, I saw the left side had completely lifted off my toe. I almost called 911 right then and there.
Now I don’t know what to do. I can FEEL the toenail. It doesn’t hurt, but I can FEEL it. You’re not supposed to be able to FEEL your toenails just sitting on your toes. The sensation of FEELING is driving me insane. I can barely focus on highlight videos. Every few minutes I bring my toe up to my face and stare at it to see if it’s changed. Touching it with even the gentlest touch causes me to recoil and make strange faces while softly screeching.
I’m afraid to go to bed because it will probably get caught in my sheets and get pulled off. I’m going to have to stay awake indefinitely until it naturally falls off or I yank it off in a manic fit of medical panic.
If anybody out there has advice for how to deal with this, please provide it to me. I’m losing my mind over here. AHHHH I JUST FELT IT WIGGLE A BIT OH GOD MY GOD DAMN TOENAIL IS FALLING OFF SOMEBODY HELP ME
