Back pain after fall. Is there any need for x-ray?
Hi, I fell down wet porch steps a week ago. My tail bone hurt really bad especially when I would bend over or get up from a sitting position. It has gotten better but there are still certain movements that hurt, When I sit on a soft surface or rock back on my tailbone it still hurts. Is there any need for an Xray? I take Aleeve daily for the discomfort.
YOU HAVE COCCYXIDYNIA. IT IS ADVISABLE TO TAKE AN X-RAY... BUT PLEASE FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS.
1. WHILE SITTING ON HARD SURFACE USE RING PILLOW.
2. SEITZ BATH-- SEAT OVER THE HOT STEAM OF SALT WATER.
4. TAKE TRAMADOL ONE TAB DAILY AFTER DINNER
