Hurt on the buttocks after a fall. Persisting pain. No response to advil

While shovelling my neighbours steps, I slipped and fell on my butt. I instantly fell like I was going to vomit , but didn t. When I finally got up I threw some salt on the step and went back in. This was about 5 days ago, the pain is slightly less, but still significant. It also feels as though I m sitting on a baseball. It doesn t hurt while standing, but it is extremely painful to transition from sitting to standing. I can t sit without pain on anything other than the toilet seat. And the only relief I ve found is 800mg Advil muscle and joint , but that doesn t last long.

Thanks for posting your query.

From description it seems to be soft tissue injury .

You need an x-ray to rule out any bony injury.

I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination. You may get the X-ray of the area affected under his/her guidance .

Meanhile avoid putting weight and rest well.
