    Yes, I do have pain in the "backside". My hips, pelvic area and rear end are the places where I have lots of pain. You'd think mine wouldn't hurt, seeing how big it is!!!! The best things to do are stretching exercises and sitting in a hot bath!!!!

    Getting rid of trigger points will help this problem. Put it in the research box. I've posted tons of stuff about it. If you can't find it put "joellen1031" or "jolly" in the box. Good luck. Jo Ellen

    I have had pain in my tailbone for the last 4 months now! I thought with all the padding I had back there it shouldnt hurt, but nooooo. Went to a new dr. yesterday (Rheumy this time) and he said a lot of his patients with fms have lower back and tailbone pain. We thought I had fallen and broken my tailbone sometime and it healed crooked, (cause on mri it is very crooked) but rheumy said my lower back is in constant spasm because of the fms and the pain is radiating to the tailbone. Sounds good to me - at least now I know why it hurts so bad. I can only sit or stand for about 10 minutes and heaven help me if I have to sit on a hard chair - I will only last about 3 minutes then. Then its on to the pain meds. Gentle hugs ~

    the MANY posts I've written on my "pain in the butt". I have a reason other than FMS for mine and I'm on STD (for now) for this problem. I had an MRI because this pain was SO severe. I got a lot of replies to my posts. Read them and you'll see that you aren't alone!!
    Love,

    Well, after reading all these posts - you'd think that having that extra padding would help us. But nooooo - so what good is it? Boy, if I had the money and wasn't afraid - liposuction here I'd come! I know mine is hereditary, but I can't stand it! I'll have to exercise forever to get rid of this butt......

    Hi There

    Please try stretches for ilioposas muscle. My rectum kept spasming and now it's stopped. Here's a couple web sites to get you on the trail. I'm starting to think my iliopsoas is responsible for all my symptoms.

    whatever that flab & tush-bone (at bottom) are, that's where I'm sore. Been using "Sayman Salve" a homeopathic sort of cream (smells somewhere between Noxema & Desitin). Most pharms will order it for you if not in stock - only costs about 3-4 dollars per jar, & I've had mine 3 years!

    Also vein (?) along where panty elastic hits along joining of thigh to torso. My Rheum says many women (in their 50's) with FMS complain of this particular pain. Do ya think that if many MEN have this particular pain, they'll come up with a solution??? Just askin'....

    Count me in. My pain extends from my hips/rear and goes all the way down my legs into my feet. I've tried all kinds of stretching. I get stuck sometimes and need help getting back. I've begun a new exercise routine and maybe that has aggravated it even more. I'll try only 15 minutes instead of 30. The best thing is my massaging heating pad. I lay on the bed and strap in across my bumm. It feels funny at first, but it helps.

    I really did'nt think it was related to FM!!! So at my last GYN appointment,I mentioned tailbone pain to her-she looked at me like I was alien!!(so I more less just shut up
    and figured oh well,"here we go again")
    I have an appoint. with my Rheumy on the 7th,I'm sure gonna tell her about the pain,mine radiates into the left hip area and down my legs at times too.
    Thanks for bringing this up!

    Hi,
    My tailbone is probably the most sensitive spot on my body. I have had fibro for quite sometime. The only thing that helps when it is really bad is a very warm bath with a bunch of Epsom Salts. Epsom salt helps a lot with any type of pain. Try it:)

    Good luck.

    I too suffer from butt, tial bone and thigh pain. This has been going on for over a year now. I have CFS and FM. Does anyone know if this will eventually go away? I cannot sit in a chair at all. I have to lay down on the couch or bed. I can stand for a short period of time. I tried the websites that were listed by"misdiagnosed" but the computer said they had no sites for either one of them. I know I need to exercise those muscles but on a very low scale. I'm pretty sick still with CFS. In fact, I am housebound and in bed most of the time. If I could get my tailbone and butt to stop hurting it would really help.......Gala

    Have y'all been checked for sciatic nerve probs? You might have a lumbar disk out of whack, pressing on that nerve.

    I had that, & was tested to see if the pain could be replicated - it was, & I had a percutaneous lumbar diskectomy (sp?) in '91. Pain was gone immediately & hasn't come back. PLD is outpt surgery. 2 stiches. You need an orthopod or neurosurgeon - not every doc performs this surgery, but if u can find one (mine was in L.A.), go for it. You're up & out & in p.t. in a week!

    God Bless, & good luck!

    Hello, I am new here but have had fibro for some time. My lower back and tush and hips down legs have hurt for a good while now. My doc says my sciatic nerves get inflamed and I take a medrodosepac (sp) for it. It gives me relief for a little while and then I am back to square one. You might try it to get a little relief.

    I, too, had severe pain in my bottom that radiated down my legs. My left side was worse than my rt. My chiro & primary both said I had the sciatic nerve inflamed. What really helped mine finally go away was a combination of chiropractic adjustments, hydrotherapy in my jacuzzi, and massage. I feel that the massage was what really worked it out. I got one a week for about 6 wks, but, boy was it worth it!! It hurt like h--l, but she dug in with her elbows & hands, all the while saying "breathe, breathe"!! I also used those adhesive pain patches that you buy @ the store. I put one on each "cheek" and one on my left hip when I went to bed each night. That, along with lots of Darvocet & ice paks, kept me going until the massage made it better! Hope you find something that works for you! Nancy

    HELLO ALL WITH A PAIN IN THE B--T!!! YEP, I HAVE IT TOO, BUT SOME OF MINE COMES FROM A BULDGING DISC AT THE L-5 AREA OF THE LOWER BACK. I HAVE HAD AND HOPE TO SOON HAVE AGAIN!!! EPIDURAL INJECTIONS AT THE L-5 AREA. THEY ARE WONDERFUL!! WHEN I WAS FIRST DIAGNOSED WITH THE DISC PROBLEM,(BY AN MRI), I WENT TO A NEUROLOGIST WHO SPECIALISES IN EPIDURALS OF THE SPINE. MY PROBLEM RADIATES TO BOTH SIDES OF THE SPINE, CAUSING SEVERE PAIN DOWN BOTH LEGS. THE 1ST SHOT, DONE NEARLY 3 YEARS AGO, HAS NOT HAD TO BE REPEATED, IT WAS TOTALLY SUCCESSFUL. THE LEFT IS MORE STUBORN--I HAD 2 SHOTS 3 YEARS AGO, AND ONE A YEAR A GO. I WAS TRYING TO GET SOME FIBRO RELIEF USING MY TREDMILL, AND IRRITATED IT AGAIN, SO NEED TO GET TO THE SPECIALIST. I HIGHLY RECOMEND THIS PROCEEDURE. THEY ARE RELATIVLEY PAINLESS, WITH A FEW HOURS OF DISCOMFORT RIGHT AFTER THE INJECTION. IT IS CERTAINLY WORTH A TRY. GOOD LUCK TO ANY WHO TRY---

    I appreciate the replies about "tooshie pain". I really didn't realize that it was so common. I've not had it there before so badly till these last few months. I am some better today, but you never know what tomorrow may hold with this disease. Now there's something to look forward to! :) Anyway, I see the Dr. tomorrow. They're taking blood for several tests and I asked for a consult in regard to the FMS. I have so amuch I had planned to be doing, but am not able to do right now! Guess we all did, huh? I keep remembering what they told me when I was diagnosed, "you will not get worse than you are now. This is not a progressive thing." Yeh, right!!!! Ya'll have a great day!! Kuntryhart

    I also have pain in toosh but have been told it is because of chronic sciatica. Very painful it goes down left leg and into foot 24/7 drives me nuts. Also have numb toosh on left side where the nerve is damaged. Apparently have 3 discs that r prolapsed and one that is causing all the probs. I did not realise that this could also be down to fibro as well. They want me to have the disc shaved to relieve the pressure I am not sure if it is the sciatica or fibro causing the pain. One doc told me an op wouldn't help then the other one tells me somat different. At the moment I take morphine 60mg per day and paprosyn twice a day. i dont want an op if it is the fibro causing all my pain. Any ideas?
    Sorry if I have posted in wrong place.
