    Horrible Back Pain After Fell Down Stairs

    I am a 27 year old healthy female who fell down a flight of stairs and now I'm experiencing horrible constant pain, bruising, swelling, it hurts more when I try to stand let alone walk or turn in any position whatsoever. The only way I have some relief from the pain is by laying flat on my back. The focus of the pain is my lower right side where I landed first. I am wondering if I should go to the ER or what suggestions anyone may have.

    Looking for specialist

    I have constant and severe back pain that is progressing dramatically the past 3 years. I took care of my mother for 13 years and she was bedridden so I'm sure that is where all this started. Upper back (burning pain) and lower back (searing pain) . Now my left leg is going numb when I walk a short distance. No pain down the backs of my legs. I have been to my GP. I've been to a Neurologist (he did a procedure to numb the nerves in my lower back that had no affect). I have seen a Chiropractor....

    Possible concussion? Help!

    Hello! Im asking this more so for my mother then myself! Today she fell off something she was hanging on when a chain broke. The fall was not too far and wasn't on anything hard. She landed on her shoulders first before the impact made the back of her head hit the ground. She did not black out and was fully conscious the whole time. She did start feeling nauseous though which is the worrying factor. But,this could be due to her anxiety making her feel this way. She hasn't show any other symptoms....

    Hip pain at night

    At night I have severe pain in my left hip. I don't know if it is a result of my back injury, on which I have had two separate surgery over a 55 year period, or is a problem with my hip. The hip does not bother at all during the day and seems fine even when engaging in physical motions; kneeling down, laying on my back and getting up, none of which bothers me. I'm not sure if an X-ray is required or if there is some physical motion that could be done to determine the source of the pain.

    cured of 30yr back pain without surgery

    I am really sorry that so many people are suffering from back pain. I have been there. It took me 30 years to become pain free without drug or surgery. Solution is simple: inversion table. This many not work for everyone but worked for m. And I want to go to the mountain top and shout to the world: At least give it a try. It does not cost much ($100.00 --$300.00) and does not take much time – a few minutes every morning until you get cured. Most of the chronic back pain is caused because the nerves....

    There is something wrong with my body- trying to get answers on what it is?

    For the past few years, I have noticed slow changes in my body and have known something isn't right. I have had anxiety for years so that's what my family and doctors keep passing it off as but I know my body and this has to be something else. It has particularly gotten worse over the last few months. I have been really fatigued and sleeping a lot and have been having persistent back pain in my upper right back for months. It feels like a heavy sort of pain. Over the last few weeks, it has....

    chronic back pain from 2 failed TLIFs and now AGAIN the equipment is coming out so i have to have another revision plus surgery to correct the damage caused from this.

    I can relate to anyone in chronic pain, and I too have had medications dropped down, but i have realized that the higher the dosage it seemed my pain was worse than being on a lower dose. But at times the pain will still be intense so thats when you really have to be careful of what your doing so it doesn't cause other problems too.
