Hi everyone, first of all I'm sorry if I have posted this in the wrong place but I am looking for some advice. Last week I had a fall onto my bottom/ lower back onto concrete. I can walk with no pain but when I sit down and try to cross my legs or if I'm lying down and try and cross or lift my right leg I can't I get a pain in my upper thigh at the front and my leg feels so heavy. Also when I go to the toilet staring gives a strange feeling. Again I'm sorry if I have posted in a wrong place but thank you for reading x

    You posted in the right place!

    Have you seen a medical professional?
    Without any kind of diagnosis, anything said here would be simply guessing which doesn't do you any good.

    There is a __search__ on this site, upper right on page. Type in your concerns and you may be led to older posts, articles, videos that may be helpful to you.
    They may be helpful to you with questions for you to ask doctor.

    I would see doctor and tell him all you said here.

    Please keep us posted on how things are going for you!

  • Hi! I've suffered from all kinds of spine pain for nearly 10 years now. It's horrible! I hope that these symptoms are just temporary & a result of something being bruised or pulled from your fall but I would definitely take the advise & go see a doc. All I know is I now have some permanent problems that could of been sorted if dealt with earlier. No-one wants to get stuck with spine pain. It's best to be safe than sorry. Chronic pain sucks!

    Please let us know how you get on.

    You might have bruised your tail bone. I am not a doctor so I don't know for sure. They do have a inflatable seat that you can sit on until it heals. Try that and see how it goes but it is a lengthy healing process.
