I was at work this morning, and I have a pain just below my tailbone. A few days ago, my lower back was hurting, but now the pain has headed south?? I haven't been to the doctor, no insurance right now. The pain is excruciating, I work long hours, and have literally no time to go today. My job is very demanding, it's very fast-paced. It doesn't hurt when I lay down, and put my knees up, but if I roll to one side , or the other, the pain comes back. Anyone know what this may be, so when I do get to the doctor, what I should expect to hear? I hope this doesn't sound unintelligible, or

Were you injured at work? If so, you need to report this to your supervisor/manager now. The company's Workmans Compensation insurance will pay for you medical treatment.

If you were not injured at work, then you will need to see your doctor asap. We can not diagnose or give any actual medical advice. Your doctor will examine you and recommend treatment based on what he/she finds.

I pray you can get relief soon.
