    This is my first thread I've started and well since I don't know how to be anonymous i'll just be honest. Less than 20 minutes ago my nan fell over onto her back, I was asleep at the time and had no idea but by the time I woke she managed to have pulled herself up but needed me to help her climb the stairs and to fold up her clothes. She was complaining about a strong pain in her back caused by the fall. Some of my family came round (1 uncle + 2 cousins) to check on us since they were nearby and just said to let her sleep and see how she is in the morning. My worry is that the last time she fell, she broke her wrist and became very upset, I wouldn't say depressed but melancholic at least. I cant help but worry that she may have broken something this time as well. I'll be staying awake tonight encase something turns for the worst so that I can react quickly but do you think i'm overreacting?

    Should I rest and see how she's feeling in the morning or should I stand guard all night just encase?

    I think you should get her seen by a doctor as soon as possible to rule out any problems.
