When I Sit Down It Hurts
Colonscopy a couple days ago. Now for some reason my butt bone hurts or tailbone should I say. When I bend over ir when I sit down sometimes. Hurt?
Sometimes, when I sit down, my tailbone hurts a lot, and I feel a little "crack" in it. Is it normal or should I be concerned?
It will get better: Tailbone pain, or coccygodynia, is commonly caused by trauma, and its probably the hardest problem for me to treat personally. It's hard to access the area so there's little to do but that also means that even if there is a fracture or subluxation, usually we recommend patience and activity modification (stand more and use a cushion for sitting). No casts, no injections, maybe an antiinflammatory. Read more
Overuse: Most commonly the exercises you are doing are too hard on your body. Buttock pain is usually associated with excessive strain while doing lower body core exercises that work the gluteal muscles and upper hamstrings. Your leg pain is probably from the same overuse issue. Seek a personal trainer or at the very least have it checked out with a sports medicine physician. Read more

I've had tenderness - like a bruise - at the bottom on my ribs for about a year now. When I sit down it mostly hurts. I also have asthma.
Unlikely asthma: Asthma symptoms are cough, wheeze, shortness of breath, chest tightness and difficulty breathing. Rib tenderness would not be a symptom of asthma. Possibilities to explain rib pain are fracture from trauma or other muscle-skeletal issue involving bone or small joints where ribs connect. The pain with a certain motion points to the muscle or bone and not the lungs. Read more
I have lost twenty pounds, I have a lot more to go. But now when I sit down my butt really hurts, never did before. Is it cause I have no butt fat?
Good Work!: Keep going. Your body goes through a lot of changes when you lose weight. Perhaps you are working those muscles a bit too hard and need to vary your exercises to use all your different muscles. If the pain worsens or persists, get it checked out by your doctor. Also if you mean to say that you have pain around your anus, this should also be evaluated by a doctor. Read more

I think I have a sist on my tailbonetailbone. It hurts to sit downdown, walk and lay down. I don't know what to do.
Coccydynia.: This sounds like coccydynia, which is a pain in the tail bone which occurs after sitting on a hard surface for a long time or from falling onto your tail bone onto a hard surface. Can take a long time to heal up. You can try sitting on a "donut", that soft cushion with a hole in the middle that you find at the surgical supply stores. Anti inflammatories may help.

I fell and hurt my tailbone last night. It hurts everytime I move. I can't sit down. I struggle to get up. What do I do?
Tailbone Pain: Falling and landing on one's tailbone or sacrum can cause bruising or even a fracture of the bones in that area. Unfortunately, if the coccyx is fractured, there is not much you can do about it. If your pain and symptoms persist an x-ray can help rule out more serious injuries. Read more
I have pain when I sit down I think it's my tailbone. Doesn't hurt all time but has been bothered me for about a year. I am 56 female.
Coccydynia is rare: The tail bone is an inch or so above the surface of your seat. The seat bones (ischial tuberosities) suspend it. You can wiggle it and see it that is the source of the pain. If so, see an orthopedist. If not, check the area with your GYN. Coccydynia is associated with painful intercourse and defecation as well as psychologic problems. Read more
If I sit for too long my back starts to hurt. The only way it goes away is if I lie down. What could I do? And what might be the cause?
Usually a disc: Usually a disc issue due to loss of its structural integrity with sitting placing a 4 times body load on the affected disc. You may need to get into better shape to compensate for this by increasing your core strength, possibly more regular exercise & weight control if indicated, better body mechanics in terms of bending & lifting, smoking cessation if this is an issue & otc medication.
