Hi everyone,

I have arthritis that is related to my crohn's disease. about a month ago I began having tailbone pain when I sit but do not remember injuring this area. Now I'm wondering if it is possibly a new area for the arthritis to hurt. I do get arthritis pain in other areas of my spine when I sleep.

Thanks for any thoughts on this.

I get tailbone pain as well and my Rheumy told me it was because I have what they call bone spers and this is what is causing the pain in that area.I have CROHN,RA,OA,AS,SEJERENS AND SMALL VESSLE DIESES AND INFLAMATION OF THE NERVES.So I can relate to what you are going through and yes it is very possible to have arthritis in that area as well.I do hope that your pain in that area starts to feel better.

So what do they do about those bone spurs? I'm guessing that kind of thing would show up on an x-ray? I'm debating whether or not to mention it to my doc at my next visit because I'm hoping it will go away, and you know how it is to be a crohnie and not want anyone messing with that area of the body!

Thanks for the info!
