Hi my name Is Sondra Ramsey. I slipped on the ice and landed on the edge of the steps on my coccyx. it hurt like the blazes and I can't sit at all. It hurts to lay down, it hurts to sit at any angle. it hurts to bend over. I have tried ice, heat and everything in between.

I have a 3 and 5 year old and it is so hard to keep up with them, and recently got a puppy a day before I slipped. It has been pure agony to bend over to scoop up the puppy, to help tie shoes. I don't know what else to do.. any suggestions? I sit on a pillow during the day at an angle to keep the pressure of my tailbone. I don't want to live with this forever.
