If it's that bad, you should ice it down and get to the ER. See a doctor.

You need to see a doctor as soon as reasonably possible. Other than icing it and taking some painkiller, there's not much anyone else can do.

You know that we can't give medical advice on the forum. It really sounds like you should see a doctor.

Yeah, I know. I think there's something stupid in our minds that goes on when we do something stupid and just want to deny it. Even so, I'm going to keep on denying it until I wake up with a vodka hngover tomorrow and see how it is. Wish me luck

Indeed. I'm sorry Dirac, but I'm going to have to lock this thread. May your recovery be swift and your pain be light!
