Pain in tail bone. Difficult to sit, arm under biceps feels warm. Looking for suggestion

I have been suffering from tailbone pain for over a year now and has gradually gotten worse, it is difficult for me to sit for even a short time, very painful to drive because of it. I started working a job that requires a lot of repetitive lifting and now in addition to the pain in my tailbone, my left arm under my bicep feels warm all of the time, for the last week or so. I don t have health insurance to get this checked out. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

This condition is called as coccxydynia. I would suggest you to sit on a cushion with a ring shape so tail bone will be pressure free. Other thing is you have to sit in warm water filled tun twice daily to provide heat fomentation. Take Brufen tablet for pain relief. There is also role of steroid injection in the bone.
