Customer Question

I had a fall on Monday this week, I impacted my lower back, left side, in the region of the kidney's. I have been experiencing sharp pains in my hip (frontal left side) and upper leg when first sitting and then when lying down. the pain does not manifest itself if I lie on my left side, but is there in my left hip when I lie on my right side. any ideas?
JA: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Any redness or swelling in the leg?
Customer: no swelling in the leg, just the sharp pain in the hip region, as if a nerve is being pinched.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I had a morel lavallee lesion (sic) in february 23015. in the left thigh, which has been reduced to almost normal size.
