So to make a long story short, approximately one year ago I had my appendix removed. This was due to the fact I was having really bad lower right quadrant pain in my abdomen. I had a CT scan and it showed my appendix was inflamed a little. Anyway, the pathology report came back and everything was normal. A week or two after the surgery (I'd say when I stopped the pain meds) I developed the same pain again. I went to a GYN and she told me it was cysts, but according to the U/S they're all functional. I went to a Orthopedist who had nothing to say except send me off for an MRI which came back normal. I went to my Gastro who said it was irritated and still healing from the surgery. So basically nothing useful to help me. The pain went away November 2014 until just this past week.
About a month or so ago I developed pretty wicked coccyx pain. I have had this issue off and on growing up, but not anything like this or recently. I've been treating it with ice and got something to sit on. Anyway, here is where/when the pain started. I got a fitbit to track my steps and I haven't really been active in awhile so I went pretty hard at it. Suddenly all my pains where back, but even worse. I was given tramadol and that is helping.
My rheumatologist way back when suggested I might have problems with my SI joint since I have a family history of psoriasis. ( I have a history of joint pain - nothing severe) I had x-rays of it before, but it showed nothing remarkable. I am seeing her in two weeks so I am going to bring up the SI joint after what I'm reading.
Anyway, I guess what I'm trying to say is
- is it possible to have SI pain where the appendix sits?
- can it be aggravated by walking?
