What are the signs of fractured neck of femur (broken hip)?

Pain, can't walk. Femoral neck fractures are extremely debilitating. Elders get these fractures commonly and may have the affected leg shorter than the other and/or rotated. The patient will not bear weight on this side. Sometimes these fractures are less obvious, requiring advanced imaging studies (like mri) to detect. In this case, if you give a tap on the heel, sometimes the patient will feel it up in the hip.
Pain and others. A fractured femur is a very painful condition, especially when trying to bear weight on the affected side or when trying to move the leg.
