What can cause coccydynia?

I think my husband may have this but we are not sure yet. He has other medical issues he is dealing with and one of the symptoms he is experiencing is pain on the tailbone. I am curious as to what is coccydynia and how patients develop it. Is there a cure to make it better or is it something they will have to learn to live with?

Re: What can cause coccydynia?

I got coccydynia years ago when my ex-husband drop me hard on the ground during a piggy back ride.
I specifically remember getting up from a sitting position was the most excruciating pain. Unfortunately what fixed it for me was having a baby! It still hurts sometimes, but nothing like it used to. The baby is 26 now! Six years ago I fell on the ice HARD and really messed up my sacrum, so now I am dealing with the nightmare of my whole body out of balance and constant muscle spasms for 5 years. I thought it was from my neck, but I am now coming to realize that fall on the ice caused a whole lot of skeletal issues.
Did your husband fall at all?

Re: What can cause coccydynia?

Not that I can recall. He does have scuffles sometimes at work since he is in law enforcement. However I do know that he has had surgery for hemmies several years ago. He did have a colonoscopy late last year as well. I am not sure if any of this has something to do with it.

Re: What can cause coccydynia?

I really doubt those things have anything to do with it. Have you done a internet search on it? I just did and there is tons of info on this.

Re: What can cause coccydynia?

Hello,
I broke my coccyx showing off doing wheelies for my family one time. The old family GP said "you get steroid shots in that area for the next 3 months!"
It worked, I have had no problem with that area of my body. However the next Monday I started a new job! Try explaining to your new boss why "you would rather stand!".
