Okay, for the past couple days I am having major pain in my tail bone. Like I am burning off fat, but just right where you sit down, not on the cheeks where I'd like the fat to disappear. I am finding I am having to readjust how I sit or get up for a while. Anyone had this happen? Any advice? It's making me nuts.

That used to happen to me when I was in the Army.. I would actually rub that area raw while doing sit-ups. Very painful.

Then it just went away. I think your body just adjusts or your skin there becomes thicker (less sensitive) or something.. lol

Well, I sure hope it just resolves soon. It's just irritating.

I've never heard of anyone feeling fat burn from a specific spot. Since we're taught that spot reduction is impossible, that goes against all the certifications I've ever taken. That being said, it could be that you've burned from all over and just had less to lose from there so you're now feeling the bones without padding when you are sitting. It's not usually a common problem, so I would bet if that is it that it will go away as your body adjusts. That being said, there is a joint there that can be impinged. If it is something that continues to bother you, I would check with a chiropractor to get it realigned if necessary. I fell a few years ago and messed up that joint so I know it can be very painful if you have it out of place. Chiropractors and some massage therapists are the only relief I've had from that injury.
