Posted on Wed, 4 May 2016
Question: I have soreness in the area of my tailbone. I do not really feel it until I stand up after sitting for a while. There is no pain at all. I have a desk job and do sit a lot. It gets better on the week-end when i have not been sitting very much. Also, once, i stand up and get moving I do not feel it at all.

needs painkillers and vit.D and calcium supplement

Detailed Answer:
Welcome at HCM
I am Dr Saad Sultan and will be answering your query. I have read and understood your health concerns.
Since during sitting , tail bone comes in direct contact with the surface and transmits body weight. So it is under tension while sitting. This tension get relieve when one is up and about.
It is fairly common to expect weakness in bone in this age group which causes pain while sitting.
Stay calm and meet orthopedic surgeon.
You may need to get an X ray of lumbosacral vertebrae to look for any osteoarthritis. He will decide whether to do Dexa scan of bones or not.
You definitely need vit D and calcium supplement along with painkillers like acetaminophen.
Consume regular nutritional diet.
Meet orthopedic surgeon
Hope it helps
