I had fallen the beginning of last week because I passed out, and I hit a lot of random objects when I fell. The problem is right on my lower back on the top of the illiac crest. I figured I hurt a muscle, right after the fall that area got extremely hard to the touch, harder then I've ever felt a muscle get. I've had whiplash and things where my muscles are tight, but never like this. This feels like concrete. Touching it only in that area makes me fly through the roof from the pain. Without touching it, it doesn't hurt too bad, but will randomly go into these weird kind of like charley horse spasms.
Also, when I lay down, or like lean my whole body up against a wall or something, it feels like there is a giant rock right there that I am laying on. Like there is something underneath me that I accidentally laid on. It feels like I'm laying on a giant rock. What is going on???? Please help!!
In all probability the tight hard area is hematoma or collection of blood. It can also be a contusion due to muscle injury. Another possibility is an abscess. It is very difficult to diagnose this on net. Please consult a doctor immediately.
