My painful story...

About 2 months ago, I was in a situation that required me to sit on hard cement for an hour a day, for 3 or 4 days in a row. One of those days, I felt something happen when I stood up - there was a painful, numbing feeling in my tailbone. That's when it all began. What I would like to know is if anyone had symptoms that they confused for prostate or UT conditions?

I was convinced it was prostatitis or similar, but after 2 months of tests, blood work, and exams, they have excluded any of that. All of my symptoms seem to revolve around coccyx pain, which has been a constant through all of this. A urologist found nothing. I thought it was prostate-related because some of my symptoms include mild burning in the penis and a general feeling of malaise in the middle parts. But I am now convinced that the prostate is not involved and that the coccyx is the culprit. I don't know what to do - it's ruining my life. Fatigue and debilitation are among the symptoms. I have no energy and very little appetite. I'm losing weight.

Anyone with similar condition? I glad I found you all, and hope I may get some insight here. Thanks so much!
