Hi--is this your coccyx--the tip of your tailbone--where the pain is? Did you get any x-rays?

ive had xrays since that dr visits ive got a herniated disk l5s1 so ive had plenty xrays and mri but wa never told of anything broken

OK Marchello but where exactly is the pain like I asked above?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

yes does feel like tip of tailbone

OK. This is called coccydynia and it often has no cause like a contusion to the tailbone. The use of a donut cushion and ibuprofen can help, but if it isn't relieved in a few days you may need a cortisone injection.
