Twisted lower back after slipping, hip pain, headache

Four weeks ago I fell slipped on water and fell. I tried catching myself and twisted my lower back. Ever since then I have had a headache that started that night and continues daily. My lower back on right side hurts and radiates paid into my front hip area. My doctor said I likely strained my back but he didn t say anything about the headaches . I have never suffered with headaches in the past and I know they have to be related to my fall. I did not hit my head.

Welcome to Health care Magic.

I reviewed your history.
It seems from the history that you are having headache following slipping with injury to back.
My response to your question is as follows.

The injury to the lower back is not responsible to your headache or it appears like just a referred pain.
You need to take analgesic tablets and if the symptoms does not show improvement then you need to consult your doctor for examination and treatment accordingly.

Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for examination for confirmation of diagnosis and treatment accordingly.

Hope this information is helpful to you.
Do write back to me for any further questions and I will be happy to answer and assist you.

Thank you
With regards
