No not really. But I once injured the little finger of my foot, I banged it accidentally on a wall when I was kicking something. It hurt really bad and I was in a pain for that entire week. I could barely touch my foot to the ground as a part of my foot got swollen. Thankfully my misery lasted only for a week long and I was back to kicking stuff again...LOL.
