Last night I was walking from my room upstairs to the kitchen downstairs then I tripped on my feet and tumbled from the top of the stairs down to the bottom, I have 4 carpet burns and a sore left shoulder and buttock, I'm going to Spain in 5 days and I'm hoping to God that I haven't dislocated my shoulder or tailbone, should I go to Minor Injuries today to see if I'm OK?

    I went to Minor Injuries and it was a muscle strain, the nurse give me anti-inflammatory cream to use 3 times a day for a few days, I also got x-rays done as well just to make sure, they came back clear so that's a relief.

    If you dislocated your shoulder you wouldn't be asking about going in for a medical professional to tell you that you were OK.  You would have gotten to the ER ASAP.   The tailbone is a different issue and probably bruised.  That HURTS and takes a good bit of time to feel normal again.  I guess you're on your way to Spain.  I hope you have a wonderful time and don't have to see a Spanish doctor!  Enjoy and feel better.  

    I guess I should have read other replies before I wrote this message.  I'm glad to hear that you did get checked out. No worries!
