Have pain in tailbone area especially when coughing or sneezing. Had fallen. Advice?
I fell down the stairs 2 weeks ago...the next day my left side was very sore, my tailbone, hip and left lower back. Two weeks later my tailbone area still hurts and everytime I cough or sneeze I have a horibble sensation in my tailbone area. It hurts to sit certain ways. I feel pressure also. I ve been taking OTC meds..should I go to the doctor???
Hi, As your problem persisted for long time, there is possibility of having fracture of teil bone giving you this problem. Go for x-ray lumbo-sacral region and consult orthopedic surgeon. Ok and take care.
