Do I have a broken tailbone?
Fell on the ice today -- smack! Landed on the top of my butt where my crack is. I also hit the back of myhead. Now my back hurts and of course my rear. It's painful to bend over especially. Is there any point in being seen by a doctor? I mean, if it's broken, there's nothing they can do, correct? What are the symptoms of a broken tailbone and what is/are the remedy/ies? Thanks.

My sister did the same thing a few years ago, no there is no point, there is nothing a doctor can do for a broken tailbone, they'll just tell you to take it easy.

I fell rolling skating, There's really nothing you can do but time. And my back still hurts on occasion. It's been 3 years. Try not to sleep on your back.

I cracked my tailbone when I fell on some stairs. All they could do was give me some pain meds and let it heal.

I'd still see a doctor to make sure you haven't messed up a disc or something in your lower back. Good luck!

You should see a doctor for the simple fact that you could of fractured you pelvis. And if the pain is as unbearable as you say doctors can prescribe stronger pain medicine than over the counter Motrin.

Unfortunately there is nothing that can be done for a broken tail bone. Symptoms are extreme pain when you bend over or sit down or stand up.
As far as relief, there really is none. You probably don't have any swelling because there is mostly nothing but skin and bone right there. You can try alternating heat with ice every twenty minutes and you can take ibuprofin, but really only time will heal this pain.
Sorry - I know this isn't very comforting, but it's the truth.

its highly a huge bruise......normally when u fall on the butt and hurt ur tail bone it will not heal for a while.....but its not broken other wise u would not be able to walk right.

don't risk a broken butt-bone by asking a bunch of people killing time "working"...go see a doctor, silly. that's the only way to be sure. in the mean time, ice it , which isn't very fun...lol

My friend slightly fractured her tailbone during a soccer game. It is pretty painful for awhile, just rest up I guess. She did see a doctor, it just led to embarassing moments, and at the end all they could do was say take some aspirin, don't bounce around on your bum for a bit, and it will heal slowly.
