Vaginal pain after fall. Stinging urination. Will soaking in baking soda be helpful?

Hello, This evening I slipped on some ice and fell, landing on my left hip and buttocks . When I hit the ground, I immediately felt a sudden pain in my vagina. (I am 50 yrs old and postmenopausal, so things are not as flexible down there as they used to be.) Several hours after my fall I noticed a burning, stinging pain upon urination . I didnnot notice any bleeding or discoloration, however. Is the discomfort that I am feeling normal in this type of injury? I landed more on my hip, but I supposed I pulled ligament in the entire pelvic floor . I landed very hard on the ice and snow. Would soaking in a baking soda bath be helpful? I figure at least it cannot hurt. Thank you very much, Kristin

Anesthesiologist 's  Response
you slipped on ice and landed on left hip and buttocks and immediately you felt a sudden pain in your vagina. this may be because of sudden lumbar disc bulge causing compression over nerve route probably L1 nerve root leading to pain and burning sensation in that area. you mentioned that you didnot have any bleeding or inability to pass urine which indicates that there is notrauma to the urethra. i feel it is better to take an X - RAY pelvis including both hip joints both AP and Lateral view of x-ray pelvis with left hip view. and also x-ray dorso lumbar spine centring at D12 AND L1 region AP and LATERAL views to check for any pelvic or hip or spine injury . if nothing is significant take mild anagesic like parecetomal 500mg thrice daily for3 days. this would take care with bed rest.
