Possible Fracture: Sounds like it could be a contusion or acute plantar fasciitis. If an x-ray was done at the urgent care center, then a fracture would have been determined. If not, go get one.

Many possibilities: It could be caused by many different conditions: quadratus lumborum muscle pain, sacroiliac joint dysfunction, myofascial (muscle) pain, or, less likely, a disc disruption. I'd suggest you see a physician to find the source. Meanwhile, look up stretches for the quadratus lumborum online.

Neurologic testing needs to be done. Further studies (CT, MRI) of the spine may be warranted Don't let the examining doctor off without an explanation as this is interfering with activities of daily living. Good luck. ...Read more
