Talking Re: GOD HELP im in such pain

Hi, it's hard to say. It could be that you are just bruised, and sore, and that will take a few days to get over. Try a heating pad, and if it gets worse, then maybe you should see the doctor. Hope you get to feeling better.

alternate the heat and ice packs.... hard to say if there's any damage.
If a few weeks go by and you don't find relief, I'd go to the doctor.

Could be your tail bone. I would use ice, Advil, alternate with heat and call my doctor.

Hi there
Rest for a day or two and do like they said above, ice for the first 24 hrs, hopefully the soreness will subside. Good luck to you.

Re: GOD HELP im in such pain

I agree, rest for a couple days, sit on an inflatable donut ($5.00 at the drug store) and if it doesn't get any better, get an X-Ray.
When you said it hurts to "break Wind" I can only think of my Mom who was bucked off a horse and broke her tailbone, it is the softest bone in the back,
Good Luck to you and God Bless,

Re: GOD HELP im in such pain

The nerve could be inflamed. There's a nerve that runs back there, in addition to the sciatic nerve. I'm 20 weeks post-op and I still get pain twinges when I get gas. So, I'm inclinded to think anti-inflams and ice packs will help more than anything right now... but again.. if not gone in a few weeks, get to the doctor.

Re: GOD HELP im in such pain

I injured my lower back by bending over washing my dogs. I was in so much pain that I couldn't hardly walk. I went to my Dr who gave me a referral for Physical Therapy I also received an x-ray (which didn't show anything).

I am a student in school for Massage Therapy right now, I decided to spend my money on massage appointments rather than on PT appointments. It took me about 2 months to fully recover. I would suggest that you contact a massage therapist and see what assistance you can get from them. If your discomfort persists, go see your Dr but keep up with the massage. Like I said, it took me about 2 months for full recovery.

Re: GOD HELP im in such pain

I agree with the advise to use ice, sit on a "donut" pillow and avoid direct pressure on the area, use something like advil for pain relief. If you don't feel any improvement by Monday, give your dr. a call.

Good luck, and please let us know how you are doing.
