Hello there,,,,The first thing you need to do after fall from stairs and pain is consult an orthopadecian/musculoskeletal physiotherapist....Xray needs to be taken immediately of the lumbar spine and pelvis to rule out any fracture or SI joint strain or coccyz swelling...only on a proper detail assessment will the exact cause be known and a proper diagnosis can be made.
Next Steps
consult an Orthopadecian with Xray reports sometimes MRI is also recommended
Health Tips
bed rest till a diagnosis is achieved,,,for the timebeing dont do movements which are painful. resort back to me if you have furthur queries Regards & Take care.

Hello there...... If you have leg pain from cramps or overuse, take these steps first: Rest as much as possible.Elevate your leg....Apply ice for up to 15 minutes. Do this 4 times per day, more often for the first few days....Gently stretch and massage cramping muscles....Take over-the-counter pain medicines.... Other treatment options will depend on the cause of your leg pain..... Consult Orthopedician.....
