I am a Registered Nurse who has suffered with tailbone pain for over 8 years. Like all chronic pain, it is essential that sufferers get the correct support, diagnosis and treatment appropriate for them as an individual. This blog follows my journey with chronic pain, it expresses my personal opinions and thoughts. It is not intended as a replacement for advice or treatment from your normal Healthcare Provider.

Social seat choice

These are my preferences regarding seat choices. Hard seat and/or table to lean on; or standing. Friday night drinks! 


  1. Wow sitting on that wooden chair doesn't give you coccyx pain ? it would put pressure on my coccyx quicker.
    Even some padded chairs have a big impact ,depends on the length of time sitting, i went to dinner with some friends and i ended up in pain and wanting to go home . No wonder it impacts on our social life .

  2. A hard surface tends to either make me sit on my 'sitting bones' better, or lean forward onto a table- which takes weight off my coccyx. Padded, soft seats are awful for me too. It's a 'real pain in the arse'!
