I feel funny about asking the dr if I can get an xray...

Of my pubic bone. I had a nasty fall yesterday & landed with a metal chair jammed hard into my inner thighs next to my private. It's been throbbing like hell all night. I don't know if I should try to call the Dr to tell them what happened or just let this be. What would you do?

Why do you feel weird, most likely its soft tissue damage but you have a very important artery that runs up there somewhere - don't feel weird.

He's or she is there to HELP you. Call them and ask for an exam and go from there.

I didn't even think of the artery! Thanks =) The way I fell is embarrassing enough lol. So this would explain why I was so cold after the fall. I was freezing!!!

I wouldn't jump straight to artery, and it wouldn't explain you feeling cold unless you ruptured it, in which case you'd be dead or very near dead right now. That's probably more related to nerves/adrenaline from falling.

It doesn't hurt to call your doctor, certainly. They may want to do some testing, or recommend a wait and see method if you aren't having any major complications. It would be incredibly difficult to break a bone the way you described, and there's not really much they'd do for it anyway, unfortunately. It sounds more likely that you bruised some soft tissue and strained some ligaments in that area.

If you saw the chair, it would make you shudder. I am buying a gate for the stairs & not use the chairs to block the stairs. This is what I get for trying to improvise a way to save money.

The cold is essentially a shock response to a painful injury.

You likely pulled a tendon/muscle or ligament, but you can injure these pretty severely and even pull their attachment away from the bone. If it is causing a lot of pain, I would bet checked out.

Pubic bone! That was the word I was looking for lol. The back of the chair rammed hard into my pubic bone.
