Tailbone Pain from Ciprofloxacin?

I went to the ER on the above date after suffering from excruciating pain for a month from going to a doctor's appointment at the clinic and sitting waiting for my turn for four hours. I was lucky that I was able to go quickly to the restroom.

I was given an IV of Cipro at the ER and was discharge after six hours with several tests done. My diagnosis was a kidney infection and a fracture tailbone. I was prescribe to take Cipro 500 mg twice a day for ten days. After five days finishing my medicine I notice some relieve, however the tailbone pain has continue.
Do you think my tailbone pain might be Ciprofloxacin Side Effects?

Thank You

I have absolutely no idea why you would think that your tailbone pain is due to Cipro when you BROKE your tailbone and it was diagnosed at the same time as you got a dose of Cipro.

Broken bones hurt, broken tailbones hurt for a long time and they don't always heal well since they can't be casted, put in traction or put back into place. I'm not sure why you expect pain from a broken tailbone to magically go away as soon as your kidney infection is healed. Broken bones don't even HEAL for 6 to 8 weeks, and you probably have damage to muscles and tissues and tendons, etc. from the fall.

Be patient.

Also, the next time that you get a urinary tract infection, you might be interested in trying a substance called D-Mannose instead of going for the antibiotics right away.

D-Mannose is a non-reactive 'sugar' that makes the bladder wall 'slippery' and helps to prevent bacteria from sticking to the walls of the bladder and causing infections. It's worth trying it out at the first sign of a bladder infection.
