Lower back soreness, swollen, no bruises, painful to touch. What to do?
I took a good hit in hockey on Sunday night and I fell on my back. Now my lower back/hip area is sore (the pain is around the left kidney area) It is swollen but no bruises. The pain is moving to the front now also...like it hurts to touch and hurts to laugh...I am a 32 year old female and I am not sure what to do...I don t want to go to the hospital if I don t have too
Do lot of ice packs on the area at least 15 mins thrice a day. Take Tablet Paracetamol 500/650 mg thrice a day after food.Wait for 2 days, if the symtoms are not even 50% better, you need to consult a doctor
