Ouch !

I tell you I'm not having a good time of it lately. Ive had some pretty heavy stuff happen to me last week. Not all that I can share because it involves other people but needless to say its effected my greatly.

What I can share with you is why this post is titled Ouch ouch ouch. It all started back on Wednesday when my little sis convinced me to have a go on her Wii Fit. You see I'm on a diet and so far have lost 13.5lbs and figured it would be a good idea to start getting some exercise in - cue Wii Fit. After just one session my thighs were screaming at me, and I don't blame them, I haven't done any proper exercise in years. You know what its like for the next day or so, your legs ache and i was walking like i had no knees lol.

Bleary eye'd Friday morning I got up and started to go down stairs. My legs decided they didn't actually want to, seized up and I fell. From the top right down to the bottom, and boy did it hurt. I sat there some what dazed, and assessed the damage. Apart from a sore bottom, grazed arms and a thumping head there didn't appear to be much wrong so I carried on about my day. As the day wore on my back/bum just kept feeling worse and worse, until it became difficult to sit down without shooting pains through my backside.

After some gentle nagging (you know who you are) I made my way up to the doctors and it turns out I've damaged my coccyx. Boo :(

The doctor gave me some strong painkillers and I was told to rest. I didn't realise exactly how strong they were and ended up feeling sick and very drunk. Needless to say as a mother, its difficult to be in that state with children around so yesterday I decided that I cant take them and I'm just going to have to grin and bare it.

I had great plans for this week, but I'm just going to have to play it by ear. It hurts to sit down so the studio days I had planned for are going to have to go on hold and I'm going to try and catch up on all the things I can do standing up.

Bummer - literally !

Oh Nicky you poor poor thing I am squeezing my bum cheeks in sympathy I can feel the pain!
Can I suggest you get yourself to an osteopath and get it checked out - preferably a cranial one (no bone crunching). They can at least sort the route of the problem not just mask it like pain killers do. Hope it's a bit better soon Vxx

Poor you - I slipped down some stairs a couple of years ago and hurt my coccyx, so I know how you have been feeling.
My advice is find some painkillers that don't make you feel rubbish and keep moving - if you stop you will stiffen up and then it's really tough.
Good luck - hope you get better soon.

What about sitting on a rubber ring or something like that..will it help? Morphine based painkillers make you feel sick and drowsy, well they do me. You can get other ones though. Or take them just a night when you are supposed to be sleeping. Gentle hugs to you.xxxx
