I have had tailbone pain in the past. I broke my coccyx when I was about 12, and it has acted up with what felt like arthritis a couple times since then. If it is the coccyx you will felt pain down near the rectum and passing stool will hurt a lot. Also squeezing the rectum tightly will elicit the pain. TYI
I do a lot. It's as if I'm sitting directly on it and it's pushing through the skin! I don't think it's related to MS, but I do have to reajust a lot when it's really bad.
It makes me wonder about a fall I had too when I was a teenager. Someone set my lawn chair to fall when I sat on it...yea, those b'strds huh? But anyway, I remember not being able to walk well w/out pain for such a long time.
I switch from cheek to cheek often for relief, but when it's bad, it's very bad, and seems nothing much relieves it. I had read that you can get this adjusted by a chiro, but I"m scared of that.
Doesn't it feel as if the bone is going to come through the skin or what?
