Tail Bone

Hi Doc,

I have had a severe pain in my coccyx for the past week or 2. I haven' t fallen or injured myself in any way. I can' t sit for long periods of time &  it' s more painful when moving or bending over. Any ideas what tis could be please?

Thanks

Dear Cheri
It may be a referred pain from a little higher up- especially if you have difficulty sitting. I think you need to visit your doctor for an examination and if he thinks it is necessary to send you for some x-rays to see where the pain comes from.
