A member asked:

I have tailbone pain?

5 doctors weighed in across 2 answers

Doctor can examine: Tailbone pain is usually from a bruised or broken tailbone due to trauma to the tailbone. A doctor can evaluate and confirm the diagnosis. Anti-inflammatory drugs like Motrin can help. Tailbone injuries are annoying because of the long healing time. The tailbone moves a bit every time a person sits, stands, or walks, so healing can be difficult. Sometimes, one can have a tumor at the tailbone.

Tailbone pain: Try using a donut type pillow and ndaids. If pain continues get it checked out by a doctor.
