What is the different between sprain and twisted?

Hello daniray,

As far as I know (but please note I am not trained in medicine), a twisted ankle and a sprained ankle (for example) are the same thing. It's when a joint moves in a way it is not intended to move, which causes an injury to the ligaments in the joint.

All the best,

Three year ago, I was in Chile and my friends invited me to play football after job day, where I fell and twisted my right leg.

sometimes when i eat i cut my tongue by mistake. Also, once I went to the dentist and i took off my tooth.

Can you explane me what does "you are all thumbs" mean?

Hello Julia,

The phrase 'you're all thumbs' means 'you're very clumsy'. It's generally a light-hearted comment.

I've twisted my left ankle when I tripped over a stair! Ouch!

Good afternoon. I can say," My knee and ankle hurt, because I have fallen down the stairs yesterday.

Does the phrase 'private parts' also include 'thighs'?
