you sound like me when i was younger - no one but me!!!

You're going to have to break up the wall to gain access to the pipes inside. Sounds like you have a soldered elbow joint in there that came loose. Open it up, drain all the pipes dry, and re-solder the joint. CAUTION - DON'T CATCH THE WALL ON FIRE WITH YOUR TORCH (AS I DID THE FIRST TIME I DID THIS) good luck and remember, it gets better with age!!
