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.
Welcome to icliniq.com. I feel sorry to hear this. As you are telling the pain only when you are moving, it is most likely to be due to some local injury and muscle spasm. If you are getting pain while walking or while sitting on the floor or hard surface then there is a chance of bone injury either ileal tuberosity or coccyx injury. Take rest and have painkillers for two to three days. If pain worsens then go to your nearby clinic for clinical evaluation and a pelvis anteroposterior view x-ray. Take painkillers and muscle relaxants like a combination of Diclofenac, Paracetamol and Chlorzoxazone along with Pantoprazole. Do not take these medications if you are in early pregnancy. Consult your doctor, discuss with him/her and take the medicine with consent.
