Thank you for posting your query.

First of all, I wish to reassure you that there is no cause of concern in your case.

Since the pain is only local (at the site of fall), there is little chance of any XXXXXXX injury.

For pain relief, you may take ibuprofen or diclofenac tablet. It should settle down in a few days.

Wishing you good health,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology) XXXXXXX Consultant Neurologist
