About 18 years ago I fell down a flight of stairs directly onto my tail bone and I'm sure I broke it. The pain was excruciating and I couldn't even walk for a little while.
Now 18 years later, I still am experiencing pain (have from time to time, but this is the worst). I also have a swollen area or a lump about the size of a 50 cent piece. Is it possible for this area to calcify and cause this much pain??
I can't sit or lay on my back without pain. A "donut" inflatable helps a little bit.
I'm ready to finally call a doctor. Do I go to an orthopedic or neurologist?? There are none listed on this web site in my area. I'm very concerned about the lump I feel.
Any comments would greatly be appreciated.
