Hip injury, bruise in the middle of my back, left hip and lower back pain. Medical attention needed?

I fell on my right side/hip one morning. The pain, however, did not begin until late that evening. I woke up the next morning and noticed a bruise in the center of my back (strange since I landed on my side) and my left hip area aches. It has been 4 days ago and still hurts, but some better. Should I see my doctor or is this something that will take time. Also note that when I look down it will trigger the pain in the lower back. Thank you.

Welcome to healthcaremagic.

I would recommend you to consult your treating doctor to get examined and rule out any bone fractures and ligaments tears to be on safer side.

Meanwhile do apply DICLOFENAC painkiller gel over the affected area.This will reduce the pain and provide you relief.

Wish you good health.
