This pain comes and goes. I think it happens every time my constipation acts up. I haven't undergone any surgery, but I know I have spinal stenosis because of an MRI I had done in November 2011. November 2011 was when I was prescribed the Ibuprofen. (30 tablets, and I would take a pill whenever needed) Aside from what I told you, I have hypertension, hypothyroidism, anxiety, a small benign cyst on my skull, allergies, gastritis, and hemorrhoids. I had a colonoscopy on October 27, 2008, and everything was fine. That's about it.
I apologize. When you asked me how long I have had this pain, I am not sure if I could have answered the question better. What I meant to say was that I had gotten an MRI back in November 2011, and it was because of this tailbone pain why I had the MRI done because on or around November 2011 is when this tailbone pain started. But like I said, this pain comes and goes. There have been periods in time (sometimes even long periods) in between November 2011 to present when I felt no tailbone pain at all. Like I said, I think it tends to act up when I get constipation. Is your answer still the same with this clarification? Thank you.
