Knot on tailbone

Christy -

Posted 2007-01-21

When I was 16 I had my first child. I had a spinal block which then (18 years ago) they injected at the end of the tailbone.

When I was around 20 I started having flare ups of a knot on my tailbone - it would just come and go. I first blamed the pain on some beaded seat covers that I had in my car-I got rid of them but I continued to have these flare ups. I did ask my gynecologist about it - she claimed she did not feel anything. I thought I was nuts.

I am now 35 and I continue to have this pain on and off with a knot that forms-about the size of a large marble. I just discovered your site today and have read on others about a pilonidal cyst. I would appreciate feedback and any info.

Thank you for your time,
