I have been looking for a diagnosis since July. I had a very hard time getting my doctor to take me seriously. I have pain and tenderness in my lower back, under my tailbone. I've gone through various tests, including an MRI and blood tests. The MRI shows edema and I'm getting a cortizone injection Thursday that will hopefully cure this. Thanks, any help is gladly appreciated.
