    Hello!

    a few questions, How many stairs did you fall down? can you stand on your leg? how old are you? 

    It may be worth getting checked out, depends on how severe the pain is.

    best wishes

      Hi acuteabdo

      I fell down fifteen carpeted stairs, more like launched! It's my upper body that has the most pain my back my hip and my neck. I don't remember anything about the fall. On to a stone floor that I used to think was the height of fashion. I can hardly move my upper body. It's agony but my main bits work.

      Hugs

      due to you not remembering i would go and get checked out you may have concussion and if it is severe it can take up to 21 days to manifest itself. not trying to panic you but i would see your gp.

      I have had first aid training hence the knowledge.

      Hello,

      Hope you got checked out, the previous person is right, not remembering the fall is more worrying and needs seeing to, yes because of damage to the brain (concussion) and more importantly the reason for the fall needs investigating.

      best wishes

    I would go and get yourself check out, did you bang your head at all? would be worried about concussion if you did. due to falling onto a hard surface you may have broken something hence the pain. better to get checked over to be safe.

    Hi Mary

    I am no medical expert and it is probably bruising but would advise you to go and get checked out it won't hurt and will put your mind at rest.

    Good luck and watch out for the dogbiggrin

    Hi Mary!

    That is too bad!  You are going to be sore for awhile!  I wouldn't be worried, but it is always a good idea to have it checked out if possible by a medical professional.  I sure hope you are feeling better soon!
