Lifting weights in high school, I got a pinched nerve in my neck pushing myself too hard. I'll share the story in hopes that it prevents others from hurting themselves like I did or worse.
I've always been a heavy set guy(think Iroh here) but when I started high school I got access to weight lifting equipment and decided start. After a year of pretty tough lifting, I still have the same body as I did when I started, I was stronger, but my body still looked the same.
I started pushing myself harder and harder and was becoming really upset with the lack of visable results. Fortunatly I was smart enough to avoid potentially harmful preformence enhancers and I discovered the reason I was getting no visable results.
There are 3 basic body types that all people have. Mesomorphs are the kind of bodies you see on home excorcise commercials, lean, musclular, toned, they have no trouble sculpting their bodies.
Ectomorphs are skinny, people who have little fat on them at all, and just don't get very musculer.
Endomorphs are heavyset, broad, and have extra fat on their bodies. This does not necessarily hinder their physical ability, it just give them a certain appearence, this is where I fall into.
Thankfully I learned this before I did more serious damage to myself, and if there's something to be learned it's this, excercise modestly and you will be much healthier, push your body too hard and you could end up causing lifelong damage.

Ask yourself, would a well adjusted 6-11 year old see it that way?
When i was taking judo (almost 5 years ago now) i tweaked my arm so bad i couldnt extend it at the elbow more than 135 degrees (with elbow locked = 180 degrees) i saw a physical therapist and an orthopedist and they didn't know what was wrong, still cant get it past about 175 now 5 years later.
Also im not sure how much of a sport sledding is but when i was about 10 i went tobogganing and smashed into an iron pole and was concussed for a good 5 minutes, i would have needed stitches but it took the doctor so long to get to me in the emergency room my blood was able to clot over the wound.

Messed up ear? =o
I got swimmer's ear (because I'm on swim team and swim so much) a few weeks before school started (like August 13th) and it never went away; I've been to the doctor SIX times since then and these past two weeks especially I've been in killer pain and have been taking motrin for the past few weeks almost every day because it has been throbbing so much. >_<
Not to whine, but you asked.
So if I seem anyway cranky or anything in my posts, it's probably my ear bothering me. (Speaking of my ear, I'm off to go lay down now with my ear on a hot pad....my mom said that might help, since I took some motrin at 5 in the morning when I woke up because of my ear, and it's only 10ish now....)
Yea, I'm on swim team, so that's probably part of the problem; I'm in the water all the time. But now I've missed two weeks of the season (one week a couple weeks ago when the ear was really bad, and now this last week of the season this week because of my ear again) and pretty much my season has really sucked.
Not that I really care about that anymore; I just wish my ear would be better. D:
Half the time it's plugged, like when you're flying and you go to a higher altitude and your ear gets that plugged feeling before it pops....but without the pop, so sometimes my hearing is strictly limited in that ear. D:
The other half of the time (which is nearly 24/7 now, except for the hours or so when the motrin kicks in) my ear is throbbing and extremely painful. It wakes me up in the middle of the night and I can barely concentrate in class anymore. DX
I hope I don't have to get surgery to fix my ear......I already have to put ear plugs/pieces of a cotton ball with vasaline over it while swimming.....though I do wish it'd get better already. DD:
