Acute trauma: To the knee with common symptoms: focal tenderness, effusion, inability to bear weight.

I fell down steps 1m ago landed on my elbow and backside of hip. Huge bruise been hurting ever since. Found lump between back bone and top of hip ?

Sounds like a hema--: Toma (collection of blood) from a burst vessel or due to a ruptured muscle, which are commoner than a fracture, ligament/tendon tears, etcc. Your symptoms should be getting better generally. Hot pack 3 times a day with pain meds would help, as well as pt with strengthening exercises. I hope you saw your pcp or an orthopod, to ensure you don't have a fx. ...Read more

I was walking up stairs then suddenly I tripped and got a bruise on my cheek bone and my left shoulder. Any help?

I was walking up stairs then suddenly I tripped and got a bruise on my cheek bone and my left shoulder. Any help?

Bruises: Bruises are best treated conservatively. To contain the spread and overall size, try icing the area. That will also help with swelling. Unfortunately, a bruise otherwise just takes time to get better. The purplish color will slowly turn to a greenish color which will fade to yellow and then disappear. ...Read more

Hit my shin 7 days ago,  it hurt pretty bad,  big knot on leg  and now i noticed bruising and swelling in my foot,right above ankle.

I fell off a bike hit my head front left side, hut elbow got cuts, hit my hip and it hurts, also cut my knee and broke mt glasses should I be okay?

I fell off a bike hit my head front left side, hut elbow got cuts, hit my hip and it hurts, also cut my knee and broke mt glasses should I be okay?

So sorry: With all the bumps, bruises, and cuts, i'd go to a quick care facility to havea check up. You may need stitches. You may need a tetanus booster. You hit your head (? Bike helmut on?) which should always be evaluated for possible concussion. Your glasses can be replaced, and you can do this later. Good luck, be careful, and always wear a bile helmut and protective eyewear when bike riding. ...Read more

Sore muscles: Ouch! Falling on the stairs hurts no matter what age! If you can move everything, and your sensation is normal, then you can rest today without seeing a doctor. Drink plenty of water today. Take some anti-inflammatories (like ibuprofen) to help with pain. Use a heating pad for comfort and stiff muscles. If you have headache, change in vision, weakness, or any concerns, go see someone. ...Read more

Hematoma: Patty, This is probably a hematoma, or a blood collection in the thigh. These are caused by trauma, and can take several weeks to resolve completely. The fact that you are not completely better is not unheard of. Elevation and Ice (I prefer bagged frozen peas) should offer relief. If your symptoms worsen or don't improve, see your doctor. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Fell on my knee walikng up the stairs knee felt like it gave out on me. Having sharp pain and can't hardly put full weight on it. Recently tore acl.

Go see ortho: If your ACL was repaired recently, it may have failed. The ACL repair gets weaker before it gets stronger. (It has to do with migration of new blood vessels to support the repair). If you didn't have it repaired, you may have had other underlying injury which had not need diagnosed, such as a partial miniscus tear which is now damaged. ...Read more

I have ankle hurts fell down the stairs?

For now: Apply an ice pack, keep it elevated and stay off it. If it's just a simple sprain, you'll feel better tomorrow. If you don't, you need an x-ray, so bring your ankle to either a podiatrist or an orthopedist, both of whom will have x-rays in their office (better than an er), so you can get diagnosed and treated properly. Good luck! ...Read more
