Bruised Tailbone?
Quick medical question for you guys: I was playing Wednesday night and was tripped up going fairly fast, and in "mid-air" as I was falling, I turned my body around to land on my butt/back.

The question is, over the past few days, my lower back (right at the crack of my bum :)) has begun to hurt severely whenever I sit down or stand up, though it doesn't hurt when I walk or am stationary (either sitting or standing). I was wondering if anyone has experienced anything like this - if I should see a doctor, or just let it heal naturally, or if anyone knows what this is potentially.

Thanks :thumbu:

Doctor ASAP
I damaged my tail bone once and it hindered my place for months, to this day I still have problems with my lower back. I had to go do the works to get it healed. I think you should go see your doctor ASAP, don't want to risk/gamble on your lower back

Go see a doctor, get it looked at to make sure its not broken. Not a fun injury to have, good luck.

Seeing a doctor would probably be best. But i'm pretty sure all they're going to say is to relax, no heavy lifting. Only thing that can heal it is time. Last year my d-man lost his edge behind the net and wiped me out. Its good to see if its cracked or not though. Take it easy.

Even if its bruised, it will take a couple months until it feels better.

Thanks for the tips guys.. I have an appt set for a few days, though I hate doctors.
