A pain in the butt!!!

I have started Having a lot of pain in my coccyx area & it doesn't seem to matter If I'm sitting standing or walking for too long.

I also have a sharp pain down my leg to the arch of my foot which feels like an elastic band ready to snap plus severe cramp in my toes ( Right side of my body )

I have also started having head sweats & it doesn't matter if I'm resting or walking or if I'm trying to do the odd job around the house when possible lol

I have also been having a burning sensation & my skin looks red & patches of dry skin

Only on my face area

I would love to hear from anybody who is having any of these symptoms & would appreciate any advice to help ease the pain

Apart from the pain on sitting no but that was caused by a fall, Suggest that you keep a diary and discuss with your doctor and hope you find a solution soon.

Thank you xx


Hi madmetoyou, i have had cocycx pain for bout 2 years now, the only thing that has helped wss buying a cushion with hole in the middle, bit like a rubber ring, this takes pressure off cocycx and redues pain, i find sitting on hard plastic chairs like in doctors waiting room the most painful. Good luck with a diagnosis for your symptoms.

Hi madmetoyou

I am so sorry to read that you are suffering in this way, and I genuinely hope that you can find some resolution and relief to this issue. As betty67 says, it may help to keep a pain diary about this and take it with you to your GP or medical specialist.

Please remember that I am not a doctor, but what you have described comes across as sciatica or sciatic nerve compression, and it really is very unpleasant. I have sciatic nerve damage and suffer very similar pain to yours. I want to wish you all the best of luck with this.

All my hopes and dreams for you

Thank you TheAuthor

I am seeing my GP next Friday again.

I saw my GP because my right hip was very painful & the coyccox area sharp pain in my right leg cramped calve cramp in my toes & Was referred to physiotherapy but yet again due to the pain they wouldn't do anything which could cause me even more pain & I'm waiting again for another appointment from them hoping they can refer me to have some injections into my lower back to see if I can get some pain relief

Yes Madmetoyou,I have red burning face on and off for no apparent reason also sweating head,some days have to dry my hair twice,think its something to do with homeostasis?

Not funny,useless telling my doc as he is not very up on fibro/me.

I have thyroid problems but tsh is at1 at the moment so maybe not a connection there?
