Talk to me about your coccyx injury

Dec 17th, 2015, 23:08 PM   #1
I fell down the stairs last July and bashed all the bottom of my back and coccyx, it hurt terribly especially when going from sitting to standing for a few weeks then gradually got better. Then I found out I was pregnant and as I got further along I found my back would hurt when sitting for long periods on hard seats and that with the weight of the baby probably didn't help.

Anyway my baby is 8 months now and it still coming and going, it will be fine for a while and then start up again more so after sitting on a hard seat or after my keep fit class. I did go to the dr a few months back but he said there wasn't much they could do as even if I had broken it it would be healed by now and it was likely damage in the tissue that was still hurting, gave me ibuprofen but didn't examine me as there wasn't a nurse available.

Again it settled down but has flared up again the past few weeks, probably doesn't help that I was jumping around at a concert, had intense keep fit classes and sat on hard chairs at school concerts etc. It even seems to be niggling when I'm standing and laying now and I've noticed if I move position when sitting or bend for something that when I sit back up it feels like something moves? It's uncomfortable before and during a movement as well. It's not a sharp pain more an ache and it feels as though it's my sacrum right between my butt cheeks.

I've been persevering with Ice and deep heat and ibuprofen which alleviates it for a short while but I want to know how long this will go on for we its been 16 months now. What did everyone else do and how long did it take to go away? I've made an appointment with a chiropractor and have bought a special cushion

I broke (I assume) mine about 6 years ago. I didn't feel it when it happened (drunk!), but woke up that same night in agony. The pain has never gone away, I've just got used to it.
I don't have any advice, I didn't see me GP or go to the hospital - but I don't believe there's much that can be done for it unfortunately.
