Can you all check and see if you have bump about an 1 or 2 inches above tailbone?

I have pain that shoots out from close to my tailbone. I have what seems like a bump that sticks out further then the rest of the vertebrae there. Can anyone who reads this check to see if they have that bump about 1 or 2 inches above the end of their tailbone that sticks out further then the rest? It might be part of the normal spinal anatomy. I just want to know. I am pretty skinny so I can feel it pretty good. I could not feel any of the bones there on my husband so I could not make a comparison. He's got more meat on his bones then me I guess.

I believe you are talking about the sacrum/lowest lumbar vertebrae. It is pretty common especially if you are thin to feel it. If you are concerned, you can always ask your doc to see if what you have is normal. We all have pretty much the same anatomy, but that doesn't mean things can't differ. Like my step father in law's sacrum and tailbone area doesn't curve, so sitting can be very painful for him. I bet it is normal, but like I said, if you are worried, call your doc
