What Are the symptoms of a bruised tailbone?

I am a figure skater and I fell a lot on my tailbone. My stomach had been hurting and I feel like I am going to throw up. I also feel pain in between my ribs. My back also hurts. Can you explain where the pain is coming from and what should I do about it?

Hello,

Possible symptoms of tail bone injury are:
1. Severe localized pain and tenderness may be felt in the tailbone area.
2. If the injury is traumatic, a bruise may be visible in this area.
3. The pain is generally worse when sitting for prolonged periods of time or with direct pressure to the tailbone area.
4. Bowel movements and straining are often painful.
5. Some women may experience pain during sexual intercourse.

Your symptoms may not specific to the tail bone problem. It seems you may be having cervical or thoracic spondylosis with compressive neuropathy it seems.

But until the examination is done it is difficult to say what it is.

Use tablet tramadol with paracetamol. If symptoms not improved please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
