Pain in the tail

Scott -

Posted 2009-12-20

I started to have pain off and on for about three months. The pain feels like the end of my tail bone is going to come through my skin. The pain is worse when I stand up from a seated position. I have noticed that it is more on the left side. I have been taken hydrocodone for pain and now it's not working. I haven't had a cortisone shot yet. From the looks of it nobody can tell me what's wrong. My doctor told me that if the pain is still there in two weeks we need to schedule a MRI and I need to get a Cortisone shot.
