Injections the key?

Jamie -

Thanks so much to everyone who has emailed their stories. It is nice to see I am not alone. Being that I am 27 years old, I thought I was imagining all this pain I am having with my coccyx. My pain is more of numbness that I feel while sitting, with some sharp pains while sitting and/or standing. I just returned from a visit with my orthopedic doctor and he suggested an anti inflammatory drug as well as scheduling an appointment with a pain management doctor. My pain is actually in the joint that connects my tail bone.

I will provide an update once I find out if the treatment cured me! Let me know if anyone else has had the same symptoms! Thanks Jamie
