    Question Tail Bone Contusion

    Hope someone can help with this. How much longer am I gonna be in pain? Over a week ago I fell ice skating. I waited a couple of hours hoping the pain would go away...but it didn't. So I went to the ER. They did exrays and said I had a deep contusion on my tail bone. I followed up with my Dr. , he gave me muscle relaxers, predisone, and vicodin for the pain. I get sharp shooting pain around my tail bone (forget it if I cough or sneeze), spasms in my lower back, feels like there is a big knot on my tail bone and alittle bit of lost sensastion when I pee. Could I have damaged a nerve or pinched something? Would this show up on an exray? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks

    I would stay away from the Predisone. That seems to be the drug that they are pushing these days. I went in for a bad cough and they gave that to me. I didn't take it as it is a steroid. I went back for a shoulder problem and they gave it to me again. This time I took it and gained 30 pounds.

    This will take a while to heal. You bruised a bone. A donut pillow is a great idea, so is soaking in a hot tub. If you twisted the tail bone you may want to have him manipulate it back in place but that is kinda of a painful procedure if they have to do it anally. Better to find someone who can do it on the outside.
