Hi all. I've been having chronic pain in my tailbone area for about 3 weeks.  I've had xrays-turned out fine and have taken prednisone for 2 weeks but no improvement and just wondering if anyone else had the same problem and if so what do you do for relief?

Hi Saintsfan, have you tried putting a heating pad on it of soaking in a hot bath. Not sure if these will help but it might. I will be praying that you feel better soon.

How about a hemorrhoid pillow to sit on?  I had surgery on my back side and that stupid pillow was such a huge help!  I looks like a child's swim ring.  This might help by not aggravating that area and perhaps you can take NSAID's to help with inflammation.  Be sure to talk to your doctor about that, though.
