I fell and landed on my backside. It feels bruised and now it hurts to sit down. How would I know if it was fractured? Thanks!
This is actually a web site about Inflammatory Bowel Disease. But here’s an article from another part of HealthCentral that may help answer your question: Detecting Hidden Hip Fractures.
I hope that helps! If you feel you have a problem you need to see your doctor and get an x-ray done to answer your question, since a hip fracture is no small problem.
