Hello everyone I've been bedbound for the past 5 months or so, only able to sit out of bed for an hour or so every day, but even then I'm sat in a chair. Over the past couple of weeks, I've started getting pain in my bum and in that general area. It isn't pain exactly, just pressure and soreness and a general aching sensation. The general kind of feeling you would get if you'd been cycling for hours or perhaps had some kind of vigorous sex (for the ladies). In addition I've started to get stabbing pains in my legs and general weakness in my legs and knees when I do walk about. I was really worried when it first started happening as I was concerned it could be something more sinister, and I'm going to get a smear on Monday just to double check that area, but I've actually realised that once I stand up, the pain and discomfort goes away. So, this must be related to increased and prolonged pressure on my Coccyx due to the fact I've been bedbound for so long. If this is due to sitting/laying in bed, it's probably only going to get worse. I think I'm quite lucky I've not gotten any bedsores as yet. I'm currently using a towel, rolled up and placed in a ring shape to take some pressure off my Coccyx and this does seem to be helping with the discomfort. Does anyone else suffer with this? Does anyone have any suggestions of what I can do and if it does sound like Coccydynia? Thanks!
