injured my coccyx (tailbone). Having no insurance, I did not get it looked at. As I was reading about the injury online, I saw a lot of things about this injury possibly causing internal bleeding in the pelvis. Has anyone heard about this and should I be worried. I have a bit of pain, but not sure if it would be worth the outrageous bill to get it looked at. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for asking

If coccyx get fractured even, only management is conservative, Rest , flat lying, NSAIDs, Muscle relaxants and special chairs for the trouble to sit like doughnut chair. It heal itself. Just keep an eye on any visible color change around the area or a bruise in which case you would need a consult. But apart from all this, you should have been evaluated for this .

Take care
