Not enough info: It would be unusual for a systemic Staph infection just from casual contact. I would consider other options, include reactive arthritis, crystalline arthritis (gout/pseudogout). It doesn't seem like the information given is going to help us pinpoint why you have this. Any recent new sexual partner or risk for gonorrhea? Where was trip? Lumbago with sciatica can lead to pain in those areas.

X-ray indicated: In my opinion, an x-ray would be mandatory at this time. Everything flows from that. See the picture? X-ray needed.
