Taken a spill on Icy stairs


Q: I slipped on ice and flew in the air. When I landed it was mostly on my right buttock. Now three days later, not only does my buttock hurt but also my upper posterior leg is sore and I have been taking Ibuprofen 2x a day. It feels like a charlie horse but its not. what should I do? Or self treat?

Symptoms:  When I walk, it feels like a charlie horse that shoots from butt to leg. If I sit my leg tingles and if I sit too long, my foot will go to sleep.
