Does it sound like a problem with my coccyx?

Posted 2006-05-21

I am 35 years old, female mother of one, 14 years ago I gave birth to a girl. During an exam, I was told I cracked my tailbone, It hurt a little over the years but nothing to really complain about. 4-5 months ago, the pain has been horrible, Especially getting up from sitting positions, getting out of the car, riding on a motorcycle etc. I recently had an xray, and they said it was normal.

Now what? I cannot imagine living the rest of my life like this. Is there something else I could ask of my doctor? Are there any pain meds, prescription or otherwise that could help?

I would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks, Kerrie
