I may need a med-alert bracelet!

I'm injured. Who the hell knows how it happened, but I've got this pain that just came out of no where yesterday. It hurts! (Did you read the treatments? Or how they go about checking the coccyx??? "You're putting that where??? Hell No!")
I have the tendency to crack my own back by twisting my torso one way and then the other, and apparently (in my opinion) I must have twisted too much. I didn't fall and I didn't give birth in the last couple of days, so I can't think of anything else that would have done this. If the pain doesn't go away by tomorrow, then I'll be paying the doc a visit. I would like to avoid any foreign instruments going into my ass, thank you. (Uh-oh, here come more starnge google hits.)
Little Man was getting a kick out of it yesterday, I was laying on the couch (with an ice-pack down my pants...very attractive) and he would go do something he knows he shouldn't be doing. I tried threatening "Little Man, don't make me get up..." Yeah, after a while he figured out I couldn't get up, so there was mass destruction going on until Daddy came home.
Daddy tried massage but after a while I just said "Dude, you just want to rub my ass..." The massage helped a bit but the pain kinda felt worse after that. Before bed he got me a hot water bottle, which also made it feel better, but then when I took the bottle off it felt worse again.
So can you picture me driving? And sitting here at my office? Totally leaning on my left cheek, because it is the most painless way to sit right now...
Glad I could entertain you.

Are you sure it's your coccyx? It could be sciatica, or a pinched nerve in your lower back. I know lots of people think Chriopractors are idiots, but I swear by them, and after 6 months of lower back/sciatic pain one adjustment provided immediate relief. Feel better soon!!!

Sorry you are feeling so lousy. I know back pain...no matter what region is NEVER any fun.

I say going to the doctors is a good idea or even Physical Therapy maybe. Let us know how you are doing.

Thanks for your concern. I'm feeling a little better today (Friday) but still have a little pain. I'll probably end up at the doc's...but last night two hours of a hot water bottle and little "ass rubbing" by Daddy made a world of a difference. I can actually sit straight now!
Will keep you guys posted!

You totally jinxed me... it's not fair!! Thankfully, mine is muscular, but how I managed to hurt myself is beyond me. *sigh* Hope you are feeling much better this afternoon!
