    I was walking down the stairs of a Harvester yesterday and I slipped and fell and landed on the concrete right on my coccyx :headache: The pain was even worse today so I just went to my local walk in centre and they said I have cracked my coccyx. :guilty: The pain is unbelievable, I can't sit down or bend over. The hospital said that there is nothing they can do and it has to heal on its own which can take weeks or months, they have given me strong painkillers which will hopefully help the pain.

    We are off to WDW in 8 weeks, I hope its better by then :sad1:

    Get yourself an inflatable ring like the kids use in a pool and sit on that. We have a number of people in our family and amongst our friends that cracked or broke their Coccyx and that was the only way they could sit. I hope that the pain killers work and that the healing process will be quick.

    Ouch! Hope you manage to heal quickly. It's making me wince just thinking about the pain you're in. Wish you better, Jen.

    Have you tried sitting on a inflatable rubber ring?

    Same here.
    I smashed mine pretty bad when I was a little girl (about 8, I think), and although I have no memory of it, my Mum says it was pretty bad and I was in bed for all of the summer holidays.

    I feel sorry for you - your description of the fall made me feel queasy, it must have been really painful. When I had coccyx pain during my pregnancies, I sat on a gymball/exericise ball thingy. I got one from Argos for about £12 - apparently it helps your posture too because it tilts your pelvis forward when you sit. Might be worth a try.

    Isn't tennisfan (Nikki) a physio? She would be able to give you good advice.
