My tailbone has come completely detached

Lavista -

I have had pain in my bottom now for over a year. My job consists of sitting all day long. The pain got really unbearable around January 2005. I continued to work even though it was very uncomfortable. I have the ergonomics team come out and re-figure my desk. I finally spoke to my supervisor and I was sent to the Worker's Compensation Doctor on April 20, 2005. The stated that it was a muscle and gave me pain relievers and sent me home. Later that day I received a call from the workers comp doctor, stating that I needed to make an appointment with my primary care doctor as soon as possible.

To make a long story short, I have now been off from work since April 27, 2005. I have been given all kinds of pain relievers, Tylenol with codeine, Vicodine, Darvacets, and have had cortisone injections. I have gone from primary doctor to physical medicine and now am awaiting an appointment from an orthopedic surgeon.

At this point I think that I just want the pain to stop, so just take it.

My tailbone has come completed detached from the vertebra. I tired of the doctors looking puzzled and coming home not knowing any more than I did before I went.

If any one else has had the same experience or even similar please advise.

Its so good to know that their are others.
