So I'm 18 years old and have recently had a baby, as which in the process of delivery I broke my tailbone. So...as my tailbone was getting better, stupid me tripped down the bottom of the steps and landed directly on it. Now I'm dealing with a hurt tailbone and EXCRUCIATING back pain. I honestly hate taken medicine with a passion but since this happened I've been taking Advil like candy and it hasn't helped at all. Everyone suggests staying off my back but I can't do that as much as I like taking care of a newborn along with babysitting my boyfriend's twin sisters...
All of that being said...I just moved out of state and don't have a doctor yet. I've been to urgent care twice and all they do is talk to me for about a minute or two and throw meds at me. First time I got a muscle relaxer which did help but made me feel horrible and I cannot take it when I'm alone with my son...which is a lot. The second they gave me something called lodine which makes me feel no different after I take it...my mother in law told me it's like Advil which is tough because that doesn't help my back at all... So on Wednesday I have an appointment with a new OBGYN for my postpartum check up...and I'm wondering if him/her can help me with this.
If I ask for something stronger will they be able to help? I once again am not a fan of meds (especially narcotics as both of my parents were heavily addicted to them) but this has become so unbearable I can't tough it out and be a good mother at the same time. I can barely bend over to put my son in his crib. I haven't really had the time to get a primary doc yet with all of my sons appointment and no transportation...so I was hoping to kill two birds with one stone. I don't want to come off as a "doctor shopper" since I've already been to urgent care but I don't want to go back because the doctors seem like their so busy they don't even have time to talk to me.
What should I do??? Is this okay??
