Unhappy First fall soreness!

So I took a fall yesterday, that storys in another thread...
I thought I was relatively uninjured, but today is much worse! I didn't bump my head, I landed on my hip/back on the left side. Today my hip is very sore, though not in the back where I landed, but in the front towards the outside. (In the front of the greater trochanter).
In addition, theres a large speckled looking bruise over my left kidney and today I've noticed blood in my urine. Not a huge amount, just some.
Should I be worried? I'm thinking the kidney is bruised and it will resolve itself in a couple of days.
What can I do to help with the hip soreness? Its a little swollen, not terribly bad. I would rate the pain at a 4 on a 1-10 scale. This was my first fall!!!!

Blood in your urine warrants a trip to the doctor, IMO.

Yes, go to the doctor, like yesterday!

Nurses don't like to visit doctors! Hehe. I might tomorrow though. See how it is in the morning. I've heard the day after the fall is the worst.

I agree... if you haven't done so already, a trip to the doctor wouldn't hurt!

For your hip, lots and lots of ice and hip stretches.

Good luck! Falling is definitely no fun, especially the day after. Hope everything heals up quickly!

I would do an ice pack, maybe a pain pill & stretches wouldn't be a bad idea either. A glass of wine might be nice...

An update! There was still blood in my urine today so I went to the doctor. They did a kidney ct and it showed a hematoma on the kidney... Which is just a bruise. The hip was x-rayed and no fracture- just a strain/sprain. So he said ice and pain relievers and rest. And if the blood becomes a lot or the pain gets worse than come back. So for now im at work :) not resting lol. Thanks for yalls help!

Good Girl! I am releived to hear you took it seriously and went to the doc. Hope that's all. You had a doozy for a first fall. Usually, they aren't that bad.

I agree. A small bruise is one thing, but blood in the urine you should go to your physician urgently and if you can't get in, go to the hospital. I hope you feel better.
