It is slightly different for me - if I lightly scratch an itch, it feels like there is a bruise under the skin and will continue to hurt for a little while. Sometimes wearing necklaces and scarves is too much weight on my neck. And making the bed is really tough. I cannot flick the comforter or sheets - it is all I can do to crumple it closer to the middle so hubby can reach and help me straighten it all out. Tailbone hurts a lot and doc said I might get injections for that.
I might say I have a pain in the butt named hubby, but he has been wonderful. So I cannot truthfully say that!
Hi Donna and everybody else,
I was told that some of that pain in my lower back and butt is caused by tight hamstrings and the best thing to do is to stretch them, using those band exertube thingamajigs. I have tried to use them and I think they help??? Does it make it go away? No. Other thing I do is stand in a hot shower letting the water hit my lower back and back of my legs and after a bit, I try to stretch, bending over SLOWLY and stretching my hamstrings that way. Of course, this doesn't help the pain at the top of the butt...not sure what would help that.
I hope this helps. I know it is so painful, SOOOO painful.
