Brief Answer:
Could be fracture around hip

Detailed Answer:
Hi I am Dr Gopal Goel Orthopedic Surgeon.
It is very common to have small fractures , sometimes even Fracture of the hip , with this kind of fall and painful walking.
I suggest X rays of the pelvis with both hips along with X rays of Lumbar Spine. In the meantime start pain killers , and take rest.
Thanks for the question. Please feel free to ask any other question.
