Tail Bone

Last night I went to take a shower. I did all the normal things one does in the shower. I bathed, washed and conditioned my hair and started to shave my legs like usual. I got the right leg all smoothed and was half way through the left leg when I got a tightening in my tail bone when I reached down. It continued to tighten until it brought tears to my eyes and I wasn’t sure if I could get out of the shower. I contemplated calling the hubby in to help me out but I decided against that and pushed through the pain. I was able to get out of the shower, dried and clothed and made it to the bedroom where I laid down on the bed. After a few minutes the pain was gone, but when I tried to get up the pain came back in a force and there was no way I could push through it this time. I struggled to find a way up without it hurting, and I felt like a turtle that has been over turned on it’s back and after about 20 minutes I was able to get in a sitting position. I told the hubby what had happened and how only half of my left leg was shaved, he offered to shave the other half for me. LOL. As of right now it doesn’t hurt as bad as before unless I try to bend down or am laying down and try to get up. Needless to say I have no idea how this happened and do not want to waste money on a trip to the doctors office. I have been popping Aleve like crazy cause it seems to dull the pain some. If it doesn’t get better in a few days I am going to have to suck it up and go to the doctors. Sigh.

    You might have gotten a pinched nerve. They’re quite painful. I would try a nice massage and see if that doesn’t help after a few days. Also a few years ago, all of a sudden my back started absolutely killing me 24/7. It was horrible. I found out the problem was my mattress; maybe it could be the same thing with you?

    Whatever it is, hope you start feeling better soon!!

    Ouch! I hope you feel better soon!

    That was sweet of your hubby to offer to shave the rest of your leg though. 🙂
