My symptoms

I have not for the life of me seen my symptoms described completely, so I hope someone can enlighten me. I have pain that is in the area to the right of my tailbone. I can touch my tailbone and it doesn't hurt, but when I ride in my car for an hour and stand up I can feel an ache there, and when I relax or push the muscle that control bowel movements it hurts. On the weekends I can hardly feel it at all, but after a long ride in a car it comes back and sometimes makes my right but cheek ache. Sometimes I can move my right hip in to simulate the pain and occasionally get a almost pop out of my tailbone.

I have taken Prescription anti-inflammatory drugs, and a steroid one as well. Nothing has worked. I went to get an MRI yesterday, because my sister is dying from a tumor that started in the same area. Her Tumor is considered rare, but I don't want to take the chance. The initial report for the MRI says I have a enchondroma on my S4. I hope that is really what it is and not anything to serious. I must go see a specialist soon to see what my option are.
