What kind of pain?

Les - LESTERIOTTH@cs.com

For about the last year I have this discomfort in my tailbone. Its not a pain but a discomfort like if I need to have a bowel movement. The discomfort is intensified prior to my daily BM. After there is some relief. I am 60 years old and I remember falling very hard on my tailbone while carrying luggage for my parents. I slipped on some wet concrete steps. This happened when I was about 28 .

The problem didn't seem to start until my wife bought me a new recliner. My old recliner supported me real good in my lower back when in a reclining position. My new one does not do that, there is a gap from my tailbone to lower back with no support.
