?Skin?: Your symptoms are not typical of anything but local trauma.

Otherwise, it could be a skin problem or a muscle problem, as both lie between skin ; the bones themselves. See your pcp for and exam. ...Read more

Fell on ice a week ago. Still hurts on left lower back. Is that normal to take that long to heal? Tiny bruise visible
Could be a fracture: Many unexpected falls in ice can create tremendous force at impact. You may have a fracture to your pelvis, sacrum, or even the lower spine. Most of these injuries with an external compression from the side (lateral compression fractures) are inherently stable, so you could stand or walk with discomfort. This injury may take 6 weeks to 3 months to get better. Have an orthopedic surgeon check. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
