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 RA....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,
