It's not nice to try and block out the pain but you have to be careful because it can lead to constipation which I got the diagnosed with colitis so I have to be careful and not take ibruffen etc


How have you hurt yourself ?, I would suggest the need to see your GP in the first instance. How long have you had the problem, just two days ?

You could also go to A and E or call your GP for an out of hours visit, depending on the pain and how you caused your problem. Do you have Arthritis ?

Warm compresses are a good way to reduce pain, however on occasions a cold compress can also work, Different Folks, Different strokes. I always use a directional shower head on the afflicted area, the intensity of the warm water will hopefully reduce pain given heat

If you are having problems with the sheets consider using something that can take of the weight of the sheets. Use a few pillows on each side of the leg/hip that should lift the sheets of the sore areas. Do you have any bolsters to restrict movement and lift the sheets.


Hi Sara sorry to hear that you are in so much pain. I hope you can see an Orthopedic surgeon soon. You need to find out whether or not you're Sacrum is healing and also if there is anything you can do about you're nerve pain. Apart from the hot and cold packs I am not sure what you can do other than see you're GP and get you're medication reviewed until you see the surgeon. I hope you feel better soon. Lola
