Re: How do i know if i have a broken hip?
yep... i broke my hip skiing a number of years ago..i was in my early 40's, and fit and healthy..but it was icy on the slope and very very hard to land on.
i could not get up onto my skiis..to ski down the slope..just simply physically could not move..i do not remember all that much pain at that time.
i finally did get up with difficulty and actually skiied down the hill, which people tell me was not only stupid but probably should not have done.
i also walked with great difficulty and drove myself home.
which people repeated what they said above...more emphatically.
actually, as i remember now., the pain was absolutely excruciating once i got home.. i could not sleep, move , or do anything until a kind friend came over and took me to the hospital.
maybe you should have an e ray just to be sure there was not a minor fracture.
or a hairline fracture..
