Hello. Since Friday, I' ve had really bad tailbone pain. It wasn't horrible friday, and i assumed i just slept wrong but Saturday morning comes and the pain is worse, now it hurts to sit flat on my bottom, and there's an uncomfortable pain when I walk. Sunday comes and I'm woken up in the morning by even worse pain. It's unbearable to sit, stand up from a sitting position and it severely hurts to walk. Monday, I had to cancel an important meeting because I couldn't walk without feeling nauseas and feeling like I'm being stabbed. Tuesday, I went to a doctor but he wasn't much help. He just prescribed pain meds. All my symptoms include severe and unbearable pain while sitting, rising from a sitting position, crouching for a sitting position, laying on my back and sides, and walking. When pressing on the area, it is tender and I also feel "rebound" pain. The pain makes me feel nauseas, and faint, and I've spent almost all week crying because i can't get comfortable. I can't see behind me and I have no one to check for me. I do not have a GP so I depend on going to either a walk in clinic or the local emergency room.
Hi Habs, I had the same kind of vicious pain that hit me from nowhere. But I never had nausea or dizziness with it. My physicians came up with a name for it, and wanted me to go to physical therapy, but I did that on my own - the pain still continued. The next time I went back, I told the physician that Alleve seemed to be helpful, so then she said I had arthritis and prescribed Meloxicam. That has been working for the pain for over a year now. I still don't know what I really have, but the pain med did work. Pain along with the nausea and dizziness is what makes me think it's something other than bones, joints, or muscles. You probably need to have some tests run. Good luck, and let us know how you are feeling. I hope you find a good physician - as the good ones are far and few nowadays! StarGlitter
habsnvanvogh; You are really going to have to find a GP so you don't have to see a different doctor every time you need to see someone. we all handle pain different for somewhat might be a moderate pain is severe to someone else it's just the difference in our system. I know when my pain gets out of control I do get nauseated and dizzy etc. But I am also taking the Mobig for chronic pain and it does wonders the anti-inflammatory effect. and in the meantime so you can get it quick you could pick up the new type of cream Aspercream with LIDOCAINE IN IT is going to get some for me Lidocaine is a lot like what the dentist uses to numb your mouth etc so it should be pretty good and is sold in most stores.And it has no smell to it like many of the rubs. And if it does not clear up soon your going to have to see another doctor. Best of luck to you Chuck1957
