Back update

So. I finally gave in and went to my doctor today, after 4 1/2 weeks of pain and 2 chiropractor appointments.

He said my hips aren't out of place - that isn't even really a diagnosis, from what he said. He said if my hips were "out of place" they would be out of socket, and I wouldn't be walking. So.

He thinks I might have a fracture in my pelvis, but he isn't sure. He said for sure I have a bruised or fractured tailbone and strained/sprained ligaments and muscles in my butt and hip area.

He gave me some drugs (wooooo hoooooo!) and I'm going to be doing physical therapy 3 times a week for the next month or so.

If I'm not better in 2-3 weeks he will have an MRI done.
