Tell your derm at your next visit or if it gets worse call him immediately. Do not take pain lightly. Especially since you work in construction you will have a higher tendency to bruising/pain. You may want to consider and discuss decreasing the dosage and instead increase course length to alleviate the side effects.
I had some mild occasional lower back pain in my last course that luckily went away after treatment but for some it doesn't so be careful (which seems to be correlated with longer and higher dose treatments).

I have been having tail bone soreness also.
Its f.....g annoying. I took a break from accutane while i was on vacation and it did go away.
Most likely if you are lifting alot then you will be more prone too it.
I was a regular at the gym and had to cut back of doing anything lift related.
Try fish oil [ i havent but some find it helpful] Try Glucosamine.
Small doses of ibuprofen help me.
Olive oil REALLY helps add it into your diet.
Im suppost to do another 3 months and ive decided that 2 is my limit.
Im over it.
Hope this helps.

Yea i know what you mean.
Ive been on it for 7 months now and ive been on 20mgs for 6 months then upped to 40 mgs from March 1st for another 2 months.
Was cool for the 1st two weeks then i started getting annoying aches.
Im hating it too.
I hope none of it is permanent.
I was on it when i was 20 years old and had full blown acne.
I had a relapse in my 40's.
If you are young you should be ok, harder for us older people.
But i just cant accept acne in my 40's and im a young looking 40 year old.

Wow my derm would never drop my dosage due to aching my derm would say you knew the side effects take from aspirin and ibuprofen which I would also recommend on my third month I had severe chest pain which just went away didn't contact my derm just took pain killers as other members of my family have been on accutane and they were fine they sucked up the pain and just took painkillers and got through it as they were determined to get rid of their acne
