Over the last 6 months ive had lower back pain centered around the tail bone, cant figure out if its related to disc or sacrum. it really hurts most when i go from a sitting to standing position.
Have had Xray,dopplar imaging and a CT scan and as yet no conclusions


ive evidence of anything wrong , any one else have this kind of back problem? what did it turn out to be?

Thanks

I had a really (really) horrible chair in my office for a while and swore I had some sort of tailbone issue. Nope, it was just that I was sitting for 45-50 hours a week in a chair that was basically just metal poking directly into my tailbone. I switched to a different chair and got one of those memory foam thingies to put on the chair and it helped tremendously. It was something really silly that was causing issues. Unfortunately you won’t be able to get an improved chair at the office (usually) without any imaging, but you can easily buy the pillows on your own at least.

With aging many end up with DDD Degenerative Disc Disease..the discs wear down and we also lose height...I was 5 5 all my life until about 10 yrs ago and now 5 3 or so.

My issue is worse with sitting and walking, laying down -- nope.

This mostly is arthritis as I've dealt with OA all my life.

I occasionally get some pretty sharp pains from my lower back to my tailbone, sometimes with spasms. I have deduced it to be from sleeping on my stomach. After a couple of days it eases up and is gone. Just part of OA that gets inflamed when spinal alignment gets a little out of whack I guess.

My husband had it for a long time after he slipped on the ice and landed on his backside. It went away eventually on its own.

Try researching it using the word coccydynia.

Oh my, I have had people with this problem...they went to chiros with no help...
What I did was send them to a specific chiro...ask if they have a 'Drop- table' or if they do the Thompson Technique.
The table 'gives' as they push ...adjusting the coccyx.
One treatment can do it.

I mean sure you could have a tumor or cancer there, ....but let's say it's just a bit 'shifted' and needs to be put back in place. Eh?
Sometimes something can be shifted just a little and docs say all is fine...you know it's not...but a little tweet with a drop table and ...ahhh.

Worth a try...imo of esteemed and experienced issues of 37 years in the biz...and more with physical issues myself...LOL!

If you don't have high blood pressure, I would highly recommend trying a good quality inversion table.

Where, how and in what do you have to sit or lay all those hours?
