I fell a couple of weeks back and hurt my back (mid back left

Resolved Question:

I fell a couple of weeks back and hurt my back (mid back left side) paid was pretty bad after a few days so I saw a Dr. She gave me muscle relaxers. All seems ok but now if I have a few drinks, the next day my left side hurts for a couple of days. Is it possible that I hurt my kidney?

How did you hurt your back?

Do you have trouble urinating?

Fell backwards and hit my back on the stairs. No problem urinating.

With that type of injury to your back, yes it is possible that your bruised your kidney.


You need to be seen again for this and a urine sample taken with labs done as well. Of course treatment will be dependent on what the findings are.
