I am 58, female, have M.S., osteoarthritis, 2 hip replacements and recently lost my balance in the bathroom and fell on my butt on  the ceramic tile floor, went and had x-rays, not cracked or broken but painfull, using a cane, very difficult to walk.  Can I do anything to help the pain, stiffness, the dr. gave me tylenol 3 for the pain.   It also hurts in the right groin area.

Hi there!

The pain is likely to be due to a bone bruise or a minor soft tissue injury. I would suggest rest, along with ice-packs/ warm compresses and tylenol/ NSAIDS for pain relief. It may take a few days/ weeks for it to heal and the pain to subside.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!

Yesterday I got kicked in the bottom. It hurts to stand up, sit down,and jump. Should I be worried?
