    How old were you when this beast first appeared?

    There is a different poll for those with young children who have Pilonidal Dimples.

    I was 20, had had some trouble with soreness for a couple of years since a fall but never really thought anything of it until my first flare up.

    I was 20 years old at the time of my first flare up. (I'm now 21.)
    I really can't remember ever having any pain or problems before then. :\

    For as long as I can remember, even in elementary school, my tailbone area would become a little sore and swollen from time to time. It never lasted long and I just thought it was normal. I was also riding horses 5-7 days a week and the area was getting a lot of constant rubbing, etc. My first flair up that landed me in my doctors office for a lancing was back in 2003 and I was around 19/20. I am now almost 26 and am finally meeting with a surgeon this tuesday to schedule surgery.

    I've had flair ups for 2 years, but thought it was just an old injury to my tailbone. Found out exactly what it was at age 26, this past March.

    I was sixteen when I got my first abscess, but I recalled having a pimple just below my tailbone a couple years prior probably when I was 13-14 years old.

    I noticed the sinus six years before symptoms. My first flare-up was at 33 years old.

    My first flare and any indication that there was a problem...44. Had no clue this even existed before then.

    I hear that it's unusual. I've been having other health issues lately though and wonder if it might be related.

    I was 13 when I had my first cyst. I had it drained in the emergency room 2 days later and then I had it removed in surgery, because it came back.
