Pain without injury


Posted 2008-03-30

My tailbone has literally been killing me for a month. I have trouble sitting down or standing up, It hurts to sit or if I move when I sit. It hurts to walk up stairs. It's ridiculous. I haven't fallen on it or anything. It is bruised and very tender, there is a huge black and blue mark that been there going on 4 weeks.

Is it possible to have seriously damaged it without knowing it at the time? The only "trauma" I can think of is during sex. I never hurts when it happens though, is that possible? I don't have health insurance but I'm really in rough shape and I don't know what to do. I keep reading website about people who are in pain for years. I don't want to feel like this for years. ):
