What's this NOW!!!

The pain in my tailbone has been getting worse and I haven't been able to walk anywhere this week! Dr is going to refer me back to hospital for an MRI on it which is good, but I have just noticed quite large swelling on both of my knees(insides of knees, not kneecaps) very firm and tender to touch!! Any ideas? Worried Ninja!!!

Hello Ninjananna,

Sorry you're experiencing this pain, it sounds like similiar pain to mine when I was wheelchair bound.

The symptoms you are describing could be Coccydinia, as I have had problems with my coccyx in the past. Please see link below;

nhs.uk/conditions/Coccydini...

Obviously I am not a doctor and I would suggest explaining your new symptoms to your GP, however I thought I would provide the link out of interest.

I bought a wedge memory foam cushion to help the pain experience for my chair and when I was using the wheelchair most of the time.

Please be aware of any redness or broken skin in that area and I would mention this to the GP if this happens. Some people can be prone to Pressure Sores if sat in one place for long periods of time and restricting blood flow to that area for a long period of time.

Please let us know how you get on with you GP as he/she has your medical history and can do a physical exam so he/she is the best person to provide a diagnosis.

Best Wishes

Emma :)

Hello Ninjananna,

Having seen your recent additional comment I think you should consider making an emergency appointment on Monday with your GP.

You may or may not have an infection or another problem, if it worsens over the weekend you may consider calling NHS Direct for advice.

I wish you all the best

Emma :)

Hi ninjananna

I am so sorry to read that you have cellulosis. I sincerely hope that you make a full recovery as soon as possible.

All my hopes and dreams for you

Thanks everyone!! Just goes to show that we can't blame everything on fibro doesn't it?? My Mum is also an ex-nurse Emma, and I would normally mention my ailments to her for a diagnosis, but She's just got back from Spain, has a rotten cold and not feeling great, so that's why I posted it on here. Just shows what a wonderful forum I've joined!!!!! Much love to one and all......ninja♥♥

Ahh thank you Sue! I'm glad to, didn't realize it was so dangerous!!... Much love!...

Mdaisy, thanks for the link, I have had this pain for a couple of years and did not realise their was a name or treatment for it, i will speak to my doctor next time i see her.It is extremely painful to sit for even a little while and trying to stand up is agony, I usually put my jacket/coat/jumper on seat to pad it out when out of the house.
