I have herniated discs in my lower back but I don't understand why the very end of my tailbone (butt) hurts SO bad. I have MRI's and X-rays and it shows nothing actually wrong with the tailbone just the discs in lower back ( i don't know which off hand) So this has been hurting for almost 2 years. Some times it's so horrible I can't function and other times it's achy / sore. My pm doctor says that the pain is coming from the lower back and going down. It doesn't feel that way to me. It's so hard to sit, I literally can't sit for more than 5 minutes in the same place it will hurt so bad. This just drives me crazy because it's like I seriously feel like I have a broken tailbone or something. Since I have been sitting for about minutes, my butt feels like it's on fire. The tailbone area is just throbbing so bad and burning. I have just an achy lower and upper back at the moment. Does anyone have this sort of problem or have any idea's of what this could possibly be?
