I: I am trying to visualize how large this is. I can't diagnose this. If the area is swollen, tender and warm you could have an infection, possibly even cellulitis. If this is the case, it is recommended that it be evaluated. If the swelling is continuing to spread you may need to be seen at the emergency room. If you develop cellulitis or if you already have it, that can be serious. ...Read more

Near my tailbone gets swollen, it feels like muscles are tense, back gets tired when standing for long time, swelling goes away after rubbing it.?

Need to get routine: A routine exercise and stretching program should really help. If your hamstring muscles are tight, that will tilt your pelvis and may be adding to back fatigue and muscle irritation. Just as important is a regular light exercise of walking, biking, swimming or other cardio for 20-30 minutes daily. Lastly a strenghtening routine - like pilates will really help. ...Read more

The: The first question is have you had a generalized weight gain? I am assuming that is not the case and that your issue is that your abdomen alone has become very enlarged. There are many reasons this could occur. I recommend that you see your doctor. He or she can insure you are not pregnant (against all odds); find out if there are any masses, check for excess fluid; marked constipation, etc. ...Read more

See a orthopedic Dr.: Swelling that lasts two years is cause for concern. You need to see an orthopedic dr. That specializes in knee pathology. It may be fluid retention that needs to be drained but I would think that an MRI of that area is indicated at this time as well. ...Read more
