Yesterday I received a very painful knock to my tailbone region during my soccer game leaving it bruised and sore. Later that evening and all day today I have been experiencing short but consistent bursts of flatulence and a constant uncomfortable feeling like I need to excrete. Could I have damage to my spinal cord?
I broke my tail bone and at first I couldn't poop for 2 weeks-- it most likely was from all of the pain medication I was on (I also broke my pelvis). The first time after my accident I had a BM my tailbone popped. Now when I poop or fart my *** bone cracks, in fact my whole lower spinal column will crack, it's like an orchestra of cracking bones whenever I excrete a blast of gas or pass a large BM. Additionally, women who "break" their tailbone are 80% likely to re-break it during child birth.
