I Hurt Myself Falling on my Hip or Tailbone.please suggest me soon

Hurt Myself Falling on my Hip or Tailbone. Need Advice Quickly l I fell the other night onto a metal bed frame, directly onto my hip/tail bone and needless say it was a very unreal pain. It is swollen in the area and my leg has gone numb a few times. This happened about a day and a half ago. Did I just pinch a nerve and if so what should I do for it?

Bleeding at point between anus and coccyx - hemorrhoids?
Hi everyone.

I have noticed for the past few months that I have what seems to be a small open sore about midway between my coccyx and anus - right at the join of my buttocks actually. Occasionally it bleeds (not very much blood), and is sore when sitting down. Other times however it can be pain free for maybe weeks on end.

Does it sound like a hemorrhoid? I have recently started doing a lot of mountain biking, but wouldn't have thought that could cause it?

Many thanks

Dear Doctor, I last had a bone density scan a year ago which showed Osteopenia in my spine although hips were normal. I have an 8 history of eating disorders (mostly bulimia and only slightly underweight although irregular periods, until the past 19 months when things became more anorexic and BMI has been between 12.5-15 with no menstruation). My current concern is that following a fall a month ago I have pain in my coccyx which shows no sign of improving and I worry it may have 'crumbled' and that this is the beginning of me losing height. Is this likely? Many thanks for your help.

I have pain in my tailbone (as if I fell) and burning sensation in my lower leg. I had a UTI, which has since cleared up and I was on Norfloxocin for it. UTI symptoms are gone, but there is still some burning down below.
