So...I took a lovely spill yesterday after stepping out of the shower. Just went flying. Landed first against the side of the tub, then the tile. I think my lower back/tail bone took the worst of the impact. By the time I went to bed last night I had a huge dark purple bruise (about two to three inches in diameter) on my lower back/upper bum area. Today I am increasingly sore all over, but mostly from my lower back down to my ankles. My hips really hurt. Dh is a little concerned about the possibility of blood clots and was wondering when to really worry. I have no idea. I do bruise, but not very easily and seldom that quickly. Anyone have any ideas if I be ignoring a potentially dangerous injury? And, if so, what should I be looking for? Thanks so much!!

You might have broken your tailbone. I wouldn't worry about it unless it seems like your nervous system was being effected. (numbness in fingers...some weird sensations in your toes...something like that).<br>
I wouldn't worry about blood clots at all unles something bizarre turned up.
