Hi I'm 20 years old and have been in an extreme amount of pain from a "bruised tailbone". I quoted that because I think there's something else wrong. It feels like my tail bone moves (feels like its snapping or catching on a nerve) whenever I move left or right while sitting. For instance when I take a left turn while driving my tailbone snaps to the right. Also when I sit or stand my tailbone seems to curve to the right. This has been going on for about 4 months. I also suffer from fibromialgia so I really don't need this added pain. The pain meds I take for my FM dont help at all with my tailbone pain but my doc doesn't want me on any more pain meds so yeah...also I never fell or did anything to bruise my tailbone so that's also why I think its something different.
