Ok...let me start off with this icon: :jawdrop: it will preface the question. My history is below. I'm facing a possible 360 revision of my L5/S1 b/c of pain. About 3-4 months after my surgery...until now, I am having really bad coccyx pain. When I sit, stand up, cough, laugh etc.. It's really focused right at the very tip of my coccyx where it turns anterior and upwards. I have researched this on the internet and can't find anything on it (except plenty of freaky sites), but when my husband and I are intimate and I am close to "that special peak"
I will start to get a really bad pulling sensation at my coccyx tip. Now most of the time it instantly ends any chance of a "special peak" because of the pain, but if it doesn't and it happens OH MY GOD...I am shoving my poor husband off of me and crying. The pain is a 10/10 and it feels like a mix of someone trying to rip my tailbone forward out my body, or stabbing me relentlesly in that tip area. It all feels like it's connected too tight--like titanium cobwebs.
I know that the coccyx has ligaments and muscles attached to it, but I also know that the S1 nerves lead to that area. So, my dilemma is whether this pain is tailbone or L5/S1, and do I expect the revision will fix it, or do I ask about having my coccyx removed/flooded with steroids? Could it be scar tissue? Am I the only one suffering with this?? Does anyone have a cure or idea on how to cope?
I know it's a really odd thing to ask, but it's painful and emotionally debilitating. My poor husband is to the point of stopping to ask if my noises are happy noises or pain noises. Gotta love him for going thru all this with me. Feel free to PM me for shy responses-I totally understand. I wouldn't ask, but for all that my back problems have taken away from me...this is just one thing I refuse to let it completely steal. I have started to come back from nerve damage in that area-just to have this happen. Geesh.
