Acute pain on the tail bone (end of spine) in any movement. Suggestions ? - Online Doctor Chats
Hello Doctor, Good Evening.
Please proceed with your query
Over the last few days, I am having acute pain on the tail bone (end of spine)
Especially while moving, from sitting to standing, by sitting on a hard surface.
Sorry to hear that
The discomfort can vary from mild to extreme at times.
it whimpers me and this is something I've never experienced earlier...
and much worried abt it.
nothing as of now to my good knowledge...
Do you sit for long time in front of the computers?
It may be stress then
is this something to do with heamorrhoids...(unsure of the spelling)
Do you have hemorrhoids?
since there is a pain in that region, I immediately thought about that. thats why I asked.
isnt that the general conception that long-sitting jobs can cause hemorrhoids...
Yes that is right
However, not everyone who sits longer develops it
We need to clinically ascertain the hemorrhoids
good to know that..
Also, you will have pain while passing stools with bleeding at times
Do you have it too?
no, I dont think so...
Then it is unlikely that you have hemorrhoids
I would suggest you to take complete back rest of a day or two
so, if its coz of stress.. what should I do get rid off it..
and watch for improvement in your symptoms
The treatment for it is only rest and hot compresses locally
You can use hot water bags on the tail bone area
Is there any OTC medication for quick relief?..coz even as I speak I experience the acute pain...
Sorry about that
it is available over the counter
Take the medication after food and as and when required for pain
Not more than 4 tablets in a day
Get well soon
Is that all for now?
Thanks for your concern.
yes. Thats all.
Do I get a transcript of this chat session...by any chance?
Bye for now
perfect. Thank you Dr. XXXXXXX
You can take an extract from the chat history
Have a wonderful evening ahead!
