I love it when someone (usually young) comes in claiming to not be able to feel and or move their legs after a trivial injury. Almost invariably I start out with “Can you feel this?” (and gently touch the supposedly paralyzed limb) – of course the answer is “no”. “Can you move your leg?” Of course not. Then I try with a little harder pressure and they also answer in the negative. Finally I pinch the crap out of them and watch their facial expression. Sometimes they are trying to hold back a look of pain and bite their lip or breathe deeply in before they start to sweat. “Nnno!” they may utter obviously through the pain. Other times they just yelp and yank their leg away. “Hey!!! That hurts like Hell!!!”.
Yeah, I thought so. You are not paralyzed and you are not getting any Dilaudid.
