tailbone pressure when bending over

I have just developed pressure/pain in my tailbone when I bend over. It has been a week or so with it. I have not injured myself. Any ideas of the cause?? I have tried advil but it has not helped. I do have degeneration of the bones in my neck with some bulging disk, but I have never had any problems like this before....My arms have been going

Re: tailbone pressure when bending over

Sorry to hear that your arms are going. I hope they come back.

Actually, I had similiar issues with bending or sitting with tailbone pain back in November. It lasted for about 6 weeks before I went and got an MRI telling me I had a bulging disc at L5 S1 that eventually started causing sciatica into buttock region and down my leg to the toes. It sucked for awhile but a lot of times these things fix themselves. Eventually shifting of the spine tends to decompress and nerve they might be affecting. It sounds like maybe you should give it some more time and then go see your doc.

Good luck

Re: tailbone pressure when bending over

Thanks for the info. I hope it does just go away. I know the path you have to go down with all the doctors and MRIs and such you have to do to find out what is wrong ( if you find out at all)!!! I am trying to avoid all of that again. I gave up after a year of doctors and test after test with my arms. I did every test they came up with, even a few twice. I never got any closer to a diagnosis much less a solution. I have learned how to wake up enough at night to straighten my arms out to stop the pain, numbness, tingling, etc. It also affects me some during the day, but not enough yet to go back again to the doctor. Never the less, thanks for the reply. I am sure I will hold out on any doctors for as long as I can stand it.
