I fell on a wooden set of stairs last night and landed mostly on my right lower back. From the morning, I feel like someone is squeezing my kidney every time I move. The pain is even more severe when I move my right leg. I do not see any blood in my urine and I do not want to go all the way to the ER for them to tell me nothing is wrong. What shall I do? My leg does not hurt, but I can still feel the pain when I am not moving my leg. But, it increases dramatically when I do. My pain is only on my lower right back. Please help.
