Left hip pain from back injury
I've been up all night fighting sciatic pain in the left leg. Tonight it is unbearable. After I injured my back in July at work and have been off since I was hobbling around my back yard wondering how the heck am I going to get my yard work done, when I tripped and fell over a boulder, went down a slope onto a cactus. Etc. I landed Hard on my right side but ever since the left hip has been extremely painful. I went and had my right ankle x-rayed because I sprained it real bad and to rule out a fracture.
Now I am wondering if the left hip pain is more than just radiculopathy? Maybe I fractured it? It hurt before the fall, the leg was very numb and j had developed foot drop, thus the tripping. But the fall was in July and the pain keeps getting worse. I dismissed it because of the sciatic pain, but now wonder if I should get it x-rayed too?
