Has anyone ever had any coccyx pain for a long period of time? If so please let me know how you got rid of the pain. I have been suffering with this now for four years. I "think" I have tried just about everything.
Someone Please Help!

Mother -

Wow! Interesting information. Thank you. Yes I am a women and that's interesting cause My husband and I have been tring to have a baby for two years with no luck and during a recent test the doc stated a little something about that. Have you always had this problem and how were you diagnosed with this. Is there anything that can be done to help this situation. How long have you had this pain and does it only hurt you when you are sitting. When I am sitting it sometimes feels like I am sitting on a marble at the tip of my coccyx bone. It's crazy!! Thanks for you post I really appreciate it!

glad i can help!! kinda thought i was crazy when i posted that. gosh its been a long time, maybe 7 years since my gyno told me during a regular pap. it is mostly when i'm sitting, but it does happen when standing/walking/ even laying down. sometimes the pain is horrible!! I think the longest its ever lasted was 10 minutes, which felt like forever. if it gets really bad i take a hot bath. other than that there is nothing else i know of to do. and i believe its a genetic thing because my mother has the same issue. good luck!

Can't they do something about a tipped uterus? My grandmother had that, and the docs were going to do something about it (if I remember correctly, they said something about a couple of little stitches), but Grandma was VERY anti-doctor and would have nothing to do with it!(Maybe they could have helped her because she was well past her child-bearing years?)

not sure, my doc never mentioned anything about it and i believe my mother didn't really have any options either. HOWEVER, i would definatly talk to your doctor about it. they will know way more than i do and possible be able to help. my mother had major complications after i was born and ultimatly had a complete hystorectomy by the age of 24ish? anyway. talk to him, and if he is unsure i'd talk to someone else. especially if you are trying for children, it isn't something that i would just let go.

oh, and wondering.. i may have a little advice on how to maybe get prenant. its very personal and i'd rather not post on this. I'm sure everyone and they sister has told you ways to "get it done", but if you are interested i'd love to share w/you how i concieved twice. i believe the tipped uterus makes it difficult. if you are willing to listen, i'd love to send an email with what did it for me. completely understand if you aren't interested though!!!

Oh, I would be very interested in hearing what was successful for you. Although - the pain I have while sitting I don't think comes from the tilted uterus only because this started four years ago and it's all the time while sitting. It's crazy. But, the pain in the coccyx area while sitting is worse some days more than others - I haven't had a pain free day in that "PAIN IN THE BUTT" area for the four years!!
Mother - could I get your email address from you and again! I look forward to hearing the success story for you!!

Well somedays are much worse than others. I have also had ct scans, x-rays, mri's, and have been to several doctors. In the beginning my doctor had beleived it to be a stress fracture to the coccyx bone. But, after months leading to years he says a stress fracture should be healed by now. Although he states that the pain can last for a very long time even years. So, after about four years of this I have become very desperate to finding and searching releif on my own. I have chosen to try out a chiropractor and I have had some releif. The strange thing is when I leave the chiropractors office it feels so good, I can sit and feel absolutely "nothing"! No pain what's so ever and for what ever reason a couple days later it can hurt me so bad I can not sit straight! My chiropractor thinks the the muscle nearest the coccyx bone is tightened up and it's having muscle spasams, and when he works that area it's exactly what I feel when I sit and like I said when I leave there it does so well and then it appears to come back again. He has now still been working me and also having me take some all natural meds to see if we can't keep that muscle from doing what it's doing!! I sure hope he's right!! I have read that this muscle is a very powerful and it can over power. Strange I think! But, I guess the body can do some strange things! At first I had thought that it was piriformis syndrome - this sounded exactly what I have and the symtoms! But the doc states that the piriformis muscle is much higher than where my pain lies! My pain is located at the tip of the coccyx! So, when I sit it's right about where the anal meets the chair! If that makes any sense! I sure hope that one day this gets figured out because some days it can really get one down feeling like I will have to live with this forever! I sure hope not!! I will keep searching and keep trying!!
I hope you to find releif! When one deals with such a thing like this you sure feel for another who has the same! My pain in only when I sit and sometimes when I am laying down and my pain while sitting is all the time!
Good luck!

Wondering,

How often are you seeing your Chiropractor? And is he adjusting your coccyx or just doing muscle work?

Mostly muscle work. But, each time he makes sure the the coccyx is in place. Each time he also works different areas too. Like neck, back, hips, head to toe pretty much. Is this strange or what? Have you ever heard of or ever dealt with such a thing?

Oh and I apologize I had missed answering your questiion of how often.

In the beginning I had gone once a week oh, I would say the first three times now I have been going about every 28 days I guess.

your symptoms are identical to mine. the pain is on the tip of the coccyx so I know exactly what you mean by when you cant sit, sometimes lying down hurts as well. I was seeing a chiro for a while and tried all the herbal stuff but it didnt do anything for me. There are days when it can get you really down but im trying to stay positive. The chiro mentioned that it could be nerve related and that needs to be released. I saw 2 different chiros and the 2nd one I actually felt worse from.

I hope you find answers.

So are you still seeking treatment or have you given up on the Chiropractors? Also, I was wondering have you tried any forms of treatment at home that have been helpful to you? If you are interested I have found some exercises that have seemed to help me out some that I would be more than happy to send via email if you would like. Like I said I get quite desperate sometimes to try just about anything. You know we don't realize how much we can take for granted until we have something so out of wack and bothers one so bad that we have to watch how we sit, how we lay, etc. It's just really crazy! If I have a good day - meaning more tolerable! I really watch everything I do that day so I don't take advantage of sitting a little more normal or it seems I will really pay for it the next day.

Did your pain just begin one day or did you have a fall or anything? Also, I was wondering if you were male or female. I have read also that this happens to more females then men. Due to the pelvic is wider in a woman.
I to hope that you find relief!

Hi
Im female, 27 years old. Im in 2 minds at the moment. im seeing a physio for my back as i have problems with that but she said that she cant help me with the tailbone pain. I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer when i was 24 years of age so I have had 4 surgerys in the past 2 1/2 years. My specialist who looks after me for that has sent my to a number of drs for the pain and its all clear. He is suspecting its from the uterus. I will be having tests done in 5 months time which will look at the uterus. I to am exactly like you when I have a better day i watch how i sit and lay. It can be such a hassle trying to drive and working in an office for me is so hard. At first I thought my pain was due to going on a jet boat and the seat was hard. So i thought i had fractured it, scans clearly showed no fractures or bruising. If it is that they said it heals after a couple of months. Having done surgery 4 months ago on my uterus and endometrios the pain was gone for 6 weeks, it felt great. But its slowly coming back to the way it use to be.

I am definently interested in any forms of excercise that may give me relief. This is my other email address not my personal one. [email protected] Grealty appreciate it.

I will send you some info that I have collected via email. Let me know if you think it's some interesting material.

So, now the doctors don't think it was from your uterus at all or they just aren't sure?
