I have been experiencing a sore tailbone for approxiamtely 5 months. There is no known injury. At first the pain was evident only when I sat on hard surfaces. After time it began to hurt when I slept, and then when I walked. I can actually feel the painful area by touching the base of my tailbone. It is beginning to annoy me because i am going to be doing a lot of traveling and I don't want to be experiencing this condition while out of town. I have tried sittign on an expensive cushion with the talbone area cut out. That does not really help much.
I am not sure whether to visit a Chiropractor or a regular doctor. In reading about my particular condition, I don't much like the options offered by either group.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
