Fell on my 'tailbone' (coxis) 3 weeks ago -still hurts like h**l! Anyone know how long before pain goes away?
Had a small fall, but landed on my bottom-and I can't tell you how uncomfortable it is lying on my back, or even sitting in a chair or car--anybody had same thing?

I know you're a right pain in the erse, I mean you've got a right old pain in the erse there.

I actually fractured mine. Yep, it sure did hurt. There was only one or two positions that I could be without pain. My muscles were so stiff from being in the same position so long that after the bone finally healed, 6 weeks or so, it took my a while to rebuild the rest of my muscles. Stretching really helped.

So, only another week or two of pain for you to deal with. Either now, or after the pain calms down, start stretching as much as you can - only if it doesn't hurt.

Everyday's the same again...
It can keep coming back. My mom fell on hers about 15 years ago on ice outside. She still gets twinges now.
Sorry - can't really give any advice, but I can at least empathise.

Mr Brightside
Mine hurt for 3 months.

It depends how bad the fall was, I fell on mine 3 times in one year and that was in 2003 then last year in 2005 I feel again. My doctor said that its going to be fractured for a while since it doesn't heal. You should try siting in a bath with the hottest water you can handle, I use to do that for 20 mins a day and it helped.

Good luck!

Yes, I know what you mean, I chipped a bone, so I was told.
Took about six weeks to be healed. I used one of those rubber rings, and painkillers. Good Luck to you, poor thing.

yup, a bruised coccyx hurts like gangbusters, applying ice for 20 minutes every couple of hours will help. But it can take months for all the hurt to go away, that is after all the tail end of your spinal cord, bruise that and it hurts for a long time.

Outspoken but Honest
One of my family did the same it is still very pain-full after 3 months good luck with it

You can sit down? When I fell on my coccyx, could only stand or lie for weeks. Took six weeks to get back to work, after I had physiotherapy (in the UK). They do ultrasound. Suggest you check that out. I was also told to walk as much as I could. Hope you get better soon, it is so painful.

yes , it takes a very long time to heal, best to get physio, whereby they will "palpate" the area, ie but there hand between your legs and try to deep massage feels good after a while, and give you some excercises to do

plus get one of those ring cushions for when you need to sit

I fell on mine when i was 15 i am now 38 and still have trouble

I did that once when I was learning to skate as a Carhop at sonic. Hurt like a ....beep!!! I layed on the ground cussing for about 5 minutes, and then using a menu board, pulled my self up. It hurt for quite a while afterward. Sorry to hear about yours.

I did something to my coxyx whilst sneezing when I was 8months pregnant and it was agony for months, then painful for years, then finally healed about 10 years later. I got a steroid injection into it, which helped quite a bit , i`d recommend that, but it is a very painful thing and will take a while to heal, I dont actually know yet what exactly i did to mine, but I couldnt sit on it for months!! Good luck!

My son hurt his when he was still at secondry school, about 11 years ago, and it still plays him up sometimes. Sorry.

I did this a few years ago and I`m sorry to say hunni, but it doesn`t go away for aaaages :-(

Oh you poor thing!
I fractured my tail bone a few years ago. I didn't know I'd done it til I went to sit down a few minutes later. I nearly left a dent in the ceiling from leaping up in agony!
I can still remember how painful it was, so I completely sympathise.
I went to my doctor and got strong painkillers to enable me to at least sit down. I was on those for about a month, and after that I was pretty much ok on brufen.
I think it took about three months for the pain to lessen enough that I didn't notice it, but it still hurt if I knocked it or sat down suddenly. I think it was about six months altogether for it to mend completely.
You might find a special cushion useful. The one I used was wedge shaped and had a cut out section where the tail bone is. It tilted you forward so you were not pressing on the tail bone, and sitting was more comfortable. You can probably get them from chemists that do disabled equipment and things like that. I got mine from someone at work so I can't help you there.
Keep taking the tablets, and I hope it feels better soon.
