About a week and a half ago I was playing soccer and while trying to get the ball away from a guy he pushed and i landed on my side and somehow my hip ended up banging against my elbow causing immediate pain. I was able to get up after a few seconds and walk off the pitch on my own, but I did not return to the game. When I got home, I iced it for 20 and then went to sleep.
The pain is getting better but it still hurts when I cough and sneeze (not to mention I am sick so coughing and sneezing happens a lot). The pain when I sneeze is unbearable, it feels like i'm getting punched by Andre the Giant. I went on WebMD and made my own diagnosis, it's either Muscle strain or a contusion. Could someone please help me verify this diagnosis? I have been icing and heating everyday since the injury and also applying icyhot about 3 times a day, with some stretching. I was able to get on the stationary bike and ride for about 30 minutes with very little discomfort.
Please help me and let me know if I am helping myself in the right way?

Thank you.

  • An pelvis xray will tell you if you have a fracture of the ilium. You seem to be doing the right stuff. Place a pillow under your knees when in bed.
