Do I Have A Tail Bone Injury?
I've had several aches and pains since I had my daughter in 2004. I just brushed them off as old age. Lately, well I should say the last few months I've been having this agonizing pain in my tail bone. It only happenings when I sit for long periods. Then it really starts to ache. After about an hour I can't stand the pain and the stiff feeling in my tail bone. I just figured it was a little arthritis setting in. My mother has rheumatoid arthritis. She was diagnosed when she was twenty nine years old. So I figured it wasn't impossible for me to have a little arthritis at my age. I've heard that rheumatoid arthritis is hereditary. The last few month this pain has been driving me crazy. The only good thing about this problem is that it only bothers me when I'm sitting. I can lay down and walk pain free. This morning I decide to get on line and do some searching on WebMD to see if I could find my symptoms. I sure did! I love this site. You can find anything but it doesn't replace going to the doctors. It sounds like I might have a tail bone (Coccyx) injury. I have absolutely no idea how or when I injured myself but I think I'm aggravating it by sitting at the computer for long hours. Darn Blog! I keep thinking maybe I fell at some point. But When? I guess I just need to start taking it easy.
