I am looking for any advice you may have. I injured my tailbone this past Jan 2020. I went to the Urgent Care the following day and the xray showed no injury. I later had another xray and MRI done at a hospital this past June, and the MRI showed a healed fracture. The orthopedic dr said there was nothing he could do for me and was unwilling to prescribe pain meds. They did a steroid injection which did not help.
However Percocet Rx'd by my generral PA had been working for me, and I had been taking it twice a day. She later told me she would not continue prescribing it and I needed to go to a specialist for pain management.
I then saw a spine dr who did a different type of steroid injection on 2 separate times, trying to target the nerves that are causing me pain. Again, the shots had no effectiveness for my pain. They then said there is nothing they can really do for me but agreed to "bridge " me with Percocet until I could be seen by a general chronic pain specialist.
I recently saw the new pain specialist but they show no caring nor concern. The only thing they recommend is an epidural steroid injection which I will have done later this week.
I have diligently been icing my back and I also use a daily Lidocaine patch -both provide minimal short term relief.
I also take Lyrica 75 mg, three times a day.
Any advice you have is much appreciated.
