I have had a few bad experiences with rocks and other concrete surfaces forcefully coming in contact with my bum.

It bothers me if I sit too long, or if I sit at an akward angle...

Today in bio I scooted my butt up in my chair and I felt the most excrusiating pain I have ever experienced in my 17 years of living. lol.

And I stood up a little while ago and felt it cause it was sore and I felt a 3/4 inch hard bump thing above my actual tail bone (coccyx)
............:huh:
It hurts.
Any experience w/ this stuff?

You are a great champion. When you ran, the ground shook, the sky opened and mere mortals parted. Parted the way to victory, where you'll meet me in the winner's circle, where I'll put a blanket of flowers on your back.

I broke my tail bone as a teen. Some guys were swingin' me to throw me off the dock into the lake and they dropped me.

It's not the kind of thing that can be fixed with a cast, so they usually leave it alone. It'll either fuse back, or it'll float around.

If it remains painful beyond the time a bruise would, you should get it looked at.

What state do you live in? We qualified for state Medicaid because I am unemployed and Bob has some major Epilepsy drugs, they cost a couple thousand dollars a month without insurance. So they put us on state papers just so we could get the medications. That enables us to go to the state university/hospital for free.

Yeah - I know how that is too.

It could also be this: Pilonidal Cyst

I've had that too. Probably related to the broken tailbone... but who knows. If it gets inflamed it WILL make itself more and more known. Very painful.

Well, when I was your age, I would often get sore sitting reclined onto my tailbone for any long period. I had both going on, in varying degrees. It's still not real comfortable for me to sit on hard surfaces a long time, like bleachers.

Keep an eye on it. If it is a pilonidal, and it is in a stage of getting inflamed now it may blow up bad on you, or it may just come and go when you irritate it too much and improve with better rest. But if it blows up, unless you've got a friend you'd trust to lance it for you (that's trust ;)) you won't have a lot of choice but to go to urgent care or something, but if it's bad you'll gladly pay it to be relieved.

You could try PMing ALOK, (or wait for her to get back on the forum... tomorrow). She has had a bone chip (though in her hip) and she took care of a friend who had a tailbone cyst removed.

That's the right spot, unfortunately. That's why it hurts so bad... it's in a tight spot ;) Pressure from all sides.

I hate to be an armchair Doctor, I didn't stay at a Holiday Inn last night, but if you've got a bump 'there', then I would guess Pilonidal.

You know what the worst part? I still remember the joke the doctor made when I dropped my shorts in the office. He said "Hmmmm.... this looks like a real pain in the ass!"

I couldn't believe he said that, but it was funny. :D

Mine grew to about the size of a golf ball, and it was excruciating then. Till it was lanced. Then he packed it full of gauze for a few days, that I could pull out myself. That was another funny story. ;)

Over two years ago I slipped on ice while walking down some stairs on a hike during the winter. This was in West Virginia while I was road tripping with my boyfriend to the ocean (and was just our first day...). It hurt SO incredibly bad. I had to then sit in the car for hourssssss......it continued to hurt solidly for the next several months. I never had it looked at, but I'm convinced I broke it. I took a spill on roller blades when I was in the 5th grade and bruised my tailbone bretty bad, so maybe it was pre-weakened from that...I don't know.

To this day, if it's generally rainy and gloomy out, I hurt pretty bad. I'm scared to know what I'll be like when I'm an old woman!! I won't be able to sit down! :(

It sounds more like a cyst (my co-worker had that and it had to be lanced and surgically scraped because he let it go so long). Try not to have anything rub on it to irrate it. You could try some sort of drawing agent to see if that helps draw it out, but that is a 50/50 as it may make it worse.

I broke my tail bone iceskating as a teen and then when I had Jonathan he snapped it again for me only up higher. I had to sit on a donut pillow for weeks and it still will bug me from time to time now.

I have the same thing! I broke my back and tail bone a couple years ago. I can't sit in a hard chair for more than like a half hour without feeling excruciating pain. I do pilates, too and there are a lot of exercises I can't do or that little part of my tail bone gets hurts SOOO bad. When I first got x-rays they sent me to a chiro who told me I'd need extensive physical therapy or my butt would ending up hurting really bad and I'd get back problems when I got older. I don't have health insurance either and I don't qualify for the free stuff so I couldn't go..... guess my chiro was right. :(

some people may remember my post from the other forum, where I learned about wb's experience, I had a horse roll on me and broke my tail bone off, and actually its not that rare, so my tail bone is just floating around down there, and since I have no butt I find it from time to time ouch!!! only cure is removal, and I dont care for the thought of my butt being operated on...Kevin

Hmm interesting. I've been having tail bone pain too. It started a few days ago. I thought it was from crushing the nerves while sitting on my foot (I do that a lot at school), but it's been a few days and it still hurts from time to time when I'm sitting in a chair.
