I'm so sick of doctors telling me there is nothing they can do

I am a 44 year old male who for the past 4 years has had to endure this tailbone pain. It is so bad sometimes that I literally feel I'm going to pass out when I stand from a sitting position.

I'm so sick of doctors telling me there is nothing they can do. When I ask for pain medication they look at me as if I'm some sort of drug addict.

I mention that my general health does not allow surgery at this time I, am 75 pounds over weight and have high blood pressure. This pain is so terrible I do have thoughts of just saying the heck with it. I have tried the NSAIDs from Aleve to Orudis KT to Naperson. All they do is make me sick to my stomach.

If anyone has a suggestion as to a doctor in the S California area who will treat (at least at this point) the pain, and not say there is nothing prescription-wise they can do for me, I would be so grateful.

Thank you
