Back pain after hitting a step, tail bone getting worse. What can help?

This morning I fell very hard on ice on my concrete steps with the middle of my back hitting a step. I was in a lot of pain and it took me a minute to get up. As the day or grossed the pain is much worse. Should I go see a dr? It hurts to get in and out of my SUV and tail bone and back is in a lot of pain if I bend or get up from sitting or go to sit

Hi NKristylee,
Thanks for writing your query.

It seems that you had suffered from soft tissue injury.
You should give proper rest to your body. Cold compress will give give you some relief in pain initially.

You should get yourself examined by an Orthopedician and have a X-Ray done.

Pain killers like Declofenac 50 mg twice a day after meals along with muscle relaxant Chlorzoxazone and antacid Omeprazole 20 mg will help in relieving your symptoms. Take medicines under medical supervision only. Application af pain relieving gel locally will also be beneficial.

Also avoid lifting heavy objects.

I hope this is helpful to you.
