Several weeks ago, I noticed some sharp pain in my tailbone area that appeared randomly (no fall, injury, etc.). I iced it that night hoping I just "moved the wrong way" but the next day the pain was noticeable worse and almost everything hurt - sitting, trying to sit, standing up, and went it was pressed directly it was a sharp, acute pain so went to a walk in clinic where the doctor believed I had the very beginning of a pilonidal cyst but the next day my dermatologist dismissed that and thought it was nerve damage so referred me to my PC for followup. When I saw her, the pain had diminished some but she ordered a x-ray (lying down) which showed nothing abnormal.
That sharp, tailbone pain has basically disappeared but now have lower back pain that seems to be made worse with movement as I feel better in the morning but the pain increases as the day progresses especially if I've been active. The pain is primarily on the right side above my hip and going down my buttock but will occasionally flare up on the left side but never seems to be on both sides at the same time. Had a MRI done last Thursday but have yet to get the results.
Have been reading up on SI joint issues and pelvic floor dysfunction (have other symptoms that may suggest this is an issue) but with the varying symptoms and different locations not sure where to start as my PCP seems to think none of this is an issue and I had to push for further testing beyond the x-ray. Admittedly, have anxiety and worried that focusing on these issues are making them more acute in my perception but hoping with some answers I can start to relax and figure out treatment/solutions.
