Winter's barely here, and I've already had my first hilarious-looking fall (you know, the kind where you windmill your arms while your legs fly up) on the icy pavement. Fortunately I had on about four layers, which cushioned it somewhat.
As COTHers, I know you have dealt with tailbone trauma. What's your home remedy? Heat? Ice? Advil? Aleve? Wine?
p.s., it's nearly worth the pain to be able to say "coccyx."
I fell during finals week down a grassy hill in slippery flip flops. The worst part is that I had forethought into not walking down the hill because I might fall.
I had no padding, just shorts and aww it went all they way up my spine.
I took advil the first couple days then just kinda dealt with the pain which wasn't constant. I was exactly 2 weeks from the day of the fall that the pain pretty much all but went away. It will be 3 weeks on Tuesday.
It it really hurts you then I would do the donut to sit on. Mine I could sit in certain ways and not have it hurt.
