Fell on hip. Sore, hard to walk, cant put pressure on hip. Thoughts?

I'm 28 years old and last night i fell on my right side, my hip took most of the impact. I'm not swollen or bruised, i can still bend over and sit and i can lay down on my left side only. its very sore and hard to walk and i can't put pressure on my hip at all. i'm most comfortable sitting down. any thoughts as to what i should do? it wouldn't be broke would it?

Hi thanks for your question.
You had a fall on your righy side and injured your right hip.Walking is difficult and you cannot put pressure on your right side Though you don't have any externan injury but internal injury or a fracyure cannot be ruled out with out an X Ray.I will suggest you to consult an orthopedician who may examine you for a fracture and may advice you X Ray to confinm a fracture.
Hope this answers your question.
