I fell on the sidewalk two days ago on my left side but I think I twisted my torso in the process. My right side near my breast wall huts if I take a very deep breath. Typically when I get anxious I get into this compulsive deep breathing. Maybe the deep breathing is making the pain worse. Should I use
Heat or cold on this for the pain?

I fell and hit my head on the sidewalk 5 days ago. I don t remember falling. When I woke up my head hurt badly and I was having trouble keeping my balance as I was moving around the house that morning. I ve had bad headaches , dizziness , nausea , and have felt spacey at times. I ve been sleeping alot. The place where I fell is very tender and I can feel it pulsating when I touch it with my fingers. I have felt better today and even worked for 13 hours. Am I going to be okay or should I seek medical attention?

I fell on the icy sidewalk about a week ago. I landed flat on my behind. My legs just slipped out from under me. Not my lower back and upper thighs really hurt, especially when I bend. There is no bruise visible. It feels a little better than it did, but it s still very painful after almost a week. Any suggestions?

Hello, I slipped and fell on my left knee cap 2 days ago. There is a pretty big bruise on the right side of the knee cap, it does hurt to walk and there is shooting pain down my leg to my ankle. I can sit in one position for a couple minutes then the pain comes back. Do I need to see a doctor?
