Coccydynia: Tailbone pain can occur with or without injury. Only real concern is to exclude a sacral tumor (extremely rare). If bowel/bladder habits normal, probably ok. Treatment included nsaid's, and a sitting pillow. Not a doughnut, but a foam wedge with triangle cutout. This keeps you sitting leaning forward without pressure on the coccyx. If persistent, removal is rarely needed but successful. ...Read more

Thus it is hard to tell as to which ingredient had worked for you. If this problem keeps on returning, it'd be wise to ask your doctor to check this out for you. ...Read more

I have 2 clear fluid filled bumps at the top of my throat with little white spots in them. Also I have been having sticky hard nose discharge.

It sounds like: You have sinusitis with a post nasal drip. You may need a round of antibiotics but flonase, generic, is a nasal steroid that, if used at night, turns post nasal drip into an antiinflammatory gruel. It could be viral allergies or even bacterial so i would go in but Flonase is cheap, safe, highly effective and good to have around, good luck. ...Read more
