Tailbone HURTS!

Jenny - LiLKRaZeeGuRL@aol.com

Hello, my name is Jenny and I am 16 years old. My tailbone has been hurting for 7 months!! Some days it hurts so bad that I break down in tears, and some days aren't that bad. My mom keeps telling me that I need to go to the doctor and I would but the thing is, is that I don't like doctors offices and I don't want to go and "moon" the doctor LOL. I know it sounds really stupid, but I don't want some guy feeling all over my butt.

My tailbone really didn't hurt all that much over the summer unless I went swimming or I would jump up and down or run. And then I got a cold a couple days ago and when I would sneeze it would hurt. I mean it hurts to lay down, stand up, walk, and even lay on my belly. I have read so many tailbone stories and how some people have had surgery.

MY PAIN IS SO UNBEARABLE!!!!! But I deal with it, even though I really don't want to. I wonder if there is anything I can take without going to the doctor?? or maybe I do need to go to the doctor...AAAHHH Its so nerve racking!!
