Hi, I've been absent for a while.  But I have a question. Has anyone else experienced extreme tailbone pain.  It's not too bad when I sit on my sofa but when I get up from a seated position or move to get into a seated position I experience extreme pain right on my tailbone.  I've been having a lot of lower back and sciatic pain as well.  Is this due to my RA or Fibro?  I currently take Percocet 5/325 for the pain and it helps a little but the pain is still very much there.  I'm starting to get worried that it's something more serious than just my Rheumy said he felt that it was more my Fibro causing it than my RA.....It's  very frustrating.  Any advice would be very appreciated.
Peace & Blessings,

Hi, Maybe its time to see your doctor about your Fibro. Let then now about the tailbone pain your having. It could be related to the Fibro.

I was diagnosed with crohns disease when i was admitted to the hospital

in 1992, in Jan of 1993 I was back in the hospital for surgery for my crohns. I had part of my right colon resectioned with ilecolonstomy.
