Pain in the a*!@#$

Stephanie Spresser - sspresser@mcleodusa.net

I have been experiencing tailbone pain for the past 4 months. It started around the time I found out I was pregnant in Dec. 2001. I am now 4 1/2 months pregnant and fell down the stairs in my house 3 weeks ago. I went to the ER but due to the pregnancy they cannot do x-rays.

I am now in so much pain it almost makes me cry to sit. I have a desk job and try to get up and walk around as much as possible. Standing up at my computer wouldn't work either because my feet and legs will swell due to the pregnancy. I don't think the fall made the pain any worse, but I don't know how much longer I can live with it. I go back to my doctor in one week and I'm going to beg him to do what he can without harming my baby.
