    Just four days to go and I will be in Devon for a lovely week of relaxation!

    My coccyx (tail bone) has really been playing up for about a week and its getting irritated by sitting at my desk all day long. And I thought that sitting at a desk wouldn't cause me any grief.

    I have ordered a special cushion and that should turn up soon and sort out my problem (everything crossed that it works.)

    So, four days and counting!

    Hope I don't miss too much!

    Hi Sarah

    Mine was the same - from around 12 weeks. I got a coccyx cushion and have to say it's been a godsend - I take it with me everywhere I go now.

    Hope you get yours soon - I'm sure it will do the trick

    Hi Sarah

    Lucky you (holiday not coccyx).

    I'm having exactly the same problem sitting at a desk all day and when I get home I'm trying to sit to the side :D
    Where can I get the cushioon from? Can't buy from the internet so do you know any shops?

    Have a great time

    Louise

    Well I looked up info on website that I think was called something like coccyx.org.

    I eventually found one made of foam with a bit cut out from a seller on e-bay.

    I am starting to get desparate now and pinning all my hopes that I will work so I'm glad it worked for you Little bump, I'm glad you like yours!
    I intend to use mine in the car and at work and will not be forgetting to take it on holiday!

    Its getting quite painful now and I dread sitting down! :oops: :cry:

    Louise - I got mine from the internet I'm afraid - can't even remember where but I googled coccyx cushion and there are loads of sellers. But you may be able to get one from a local physiotherapist or chiropractor.

    If you can get one with memory foam I've heard they are excellent, though mine is just a normal one and to be honest it works absolutelyl fine for me.

    I agree Sarah - that pelvis thing sounds nasty.

    My coccyx cushion has just turned up and it is wonderful

    Can't feel a thing!

    I will be taking it everywhere I go from now on!

    Its so nice to know that I won't be causing any more damage to my back bone. The thought of that was really stressing me out.

    I have a very happy bum today!

    :D :D :D
