Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi, Thanks for your question. I'm Dr. Hasan and I'll try to help you.
Were you completely al right on friday till sunday?
Hi there no pain / stiffness initially around groin and hip but worsened and first felt internal pain next day
Thanks a lot for you input. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want.
As per description of your symptoms, yes the pain you are having is related to the fall.
I suspected so
Initially it was just a muscular trauma but now the symptoms are indicative of nerve compression.
Which pain killer you are on?
Does it help?
400 mg three times a day?
Thought that would reduce inflammation but doesn't help much ..
The extent of trauma you have is not likely to respond to ibuprofen.
Ok is the physio a correct first stop?
I would suggest you to see your doctor as early as possible and you may need stronger pain killers.
I would suggest you to see your GP
and if pain is unbearable then A & E.
Till then observe complete bed rest and don't put weight on affected leg.
Ok i will do so. the pain is not sharp but persistent and deep, sharpens only when I get up or walk too much
Don't get stressed, you will be fine.
Yes that is why I suspect muscular and nerve compression both.
The dull pain is muscular and the sharp pain indicates nerve compression.
Any question please?
ok ... Strange unaccustomed pain made me nervous. Makes sense. One final thing. Isn't here any likelihood this could be a stress fracture?
Less likely because in that case the pain should have been severe right after the injury.
But X rays required to rule out the possibility
Clinically speaking, fracture least likely.
Great and phew .. Thank you. Only asking as I have osteo in hip and bad fall off horse years ago with trauma to pelvis / lumbar ...
I will go to doctor tomorrow
