Slipped getting onto a stationary bike


My foot slipped while I was getting onto a stationary bike, and I landed on the seat on my tailbone. I was in terrible pain for 4 months. I am an Administration Assistant and had to keep standing up at my desk. The pain nearly consumed my life. Riding in a car was horrible. Sitting on anything was painful, soft or hard.

I took Ibuprofen daily and very gradually the pain let up. It has been over a year and it still hurts at times.

Doctors don't seem to be able to do anything about this except prescribe pain medication.
