I have a dull pain in my tailbone and a buzzing sensation.

Customer Question
I have a dull...

I have a dull pain in my tailbone and a buzzing sensation. It is sporadic and not consistent. I am not sure what is going on.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

It has been about three weeks. If I sit too long it seems to worsen.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have had lower back pain off and on for many years. I have had IBS but have not had lots of symptoms recently.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
