Have you ever heard of best injuries to fake for pain meds? Well, phenomenon does really exist! It is a very interesting topic and now Insider Monkey has published an article about it. As for me, I don’t want to have any injuries, neither fake or true one, and I am absolutely not interested in pain meds. However this article was very interesteng for me, although I hardly ever take any pills. I have only some aspirins at home as a rule.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked two of the best injuries to fake for pain meds.
The first fake injury is to pretend sprains. A sprain is a pretty common injury that occurs when the ligaments of a joint are overworked or rolls/twists in an awkward way, but not so much so that it causes a fracture. Since sprains can easily be diagnosed and treated by their victims you could claim you tripped over anything or even nothing at all (hey, it happens to the best of us) and sprained your ankle. Don’t forget to mention that you took care of the swelling with some ice and have been taking over-the-counters for pain, but aren’t getting the relief you need with your active lifestyle (or, just throw in whatever ee sounds legit). But whatever you do, don’t play the injury up too much or you might run into some trouble as the doctor will surely want to run some tests to make sure it’s not more serious than it is. The second idea for today is shin splints. Don’t go thinking you’re going to be getting any real serious pain pills for faking shin splints. While shin splints aren’t the most painful thing in the world and typically only last a few days, it is possible for the pain to be ongoing for a few weeks and it wouldn’t be too hard to play it off like you need something a little stronger than your over-the-counters. But that’s it!—and you would most likely know better than me what types of painkillers are milder than others, so be sure not to suggest anything too over-the-top or else the doc might smell some foul play.
