When I was a child I went to karate section, and ones, while sparring a boy who I was fighting with hit my thumb by his foot and broke it. That day we came to the hospital and I got gypsum on my hand.

I like to play football, basketball and swimming, once I tried to stand on my feet I injured my toe when I check what happened I sow glass under sand it was caused the hit for my toe.

OMG! SInce this morning, I've got a strained back as I bent over to pick up a heavy thing.
( ᵒ̴̶̷̥́ _ᵒ̴̶̷̣̥̀ )

Fornutaley, I´ve never been injured.

Is it correct this sentence?

Hello AdrianaPC

Except for the spelling error ('fortunately'), yes, that is correct, though some people prefer not to use a comma after a sentence adverb. If you were writing for someone like that, then with the spelling corrected and the comma removed, it would be correct.

All the best

I've had a pain in the back for a long times. I can't seat for working more than 8 hours. these sentence Is that OK Peter?

Hello JAE Aniruth,

Those sentences are not quite correct. Here is one way to say this:

I've had a pain in the back for a long time. I can't work sitting down for more than 8 hours.

I’ve had a pain in the back for these a few days. Or I’m having a pain in the back. Are both sentences acceptable?

Hello Smiley,

The first sentence is fine. The second sentence should have a simple verb, not a continuous form:

I’ve had a pain in the back for these a few days.

I have a pain in the back.
