Sorry to hear you are in so much pain. I broke mine when I was 10, fell out of a tree unto the root, it hurt like hell for weeks. When I was 14, I dont know what I did but the pain came back, I could barely walk. I got xrays to find out it was broken into little pieces. I had surgery to remove it. Im now 50, I still have pain once in a while, cant sit for very long periods of time but its not as bad as it was.

Try advil or sit on a tube to keep the pressure off the area.

I'm not an MD but I do know that there doesn't appear to be a specific treatment for this break in what is the tailbone of our spine. Ask your doc.
