Nurse who suffers chronic tailbone pain

I am a Registered Nurse who has suffered with tailbone pain for over 8 years. Like all chronic pain, it is essential that sufferers get the correct support, diagnosis and treatment appropriate for them as an individual. This blog follows my journey with chronic pain, it expresses my personal opinions and thoughts. It is not intended as a replacement for advice or treatment from your normal Healthcare Provider.

Can't believe I'm actually looking forward to work tomorrow. I am hopefully not going to be sat around too much, and intend gyming after work. It'll be a long day, but hopefully a less sore one. Today has involved a lot of sitting and I'm in pain 7/10.....all in my right butt cheek. It can only be because I haven't gymed. I gave myself a day off due to sore knees. 

Tomorrow I have a meeting with my manager and HR to request shorter days to allow me to gym after work. I do manage ok, but it just makes it such a long day. I know lots of people manage to gym after work, but when you don't sleep well, it just all adds up to making it more difficult to cope. 

I've probably used this picture before, but it sums up how I feel right now- a painful baggage that I'm carrying around with me.
