Tail bone pain and disc herniation
I recently had an pretty bad episode of lower back pain. By MRI, it was diagnosed as nerve impingement due to L1-S5 ruptured disc. I responded well to ESI and the back pain went away, except for occasional but manageable flare-ups due to accidental twisting/turning. This was roughly a month ago.
For the past two days, I have lots of pain in the tail bone area. I can feel it if I touch the area or while I am sitting or stretching. I have no other pain in the back, nor in the leg. Is this new pain related to the herniation, or it is a completely new set of problems? I am planning on visiting my doctor in the coming week, but I would greatly appreciate it if anyone knowledgeable could comment in.
