Are there any success stories out there for people who have recovered from coccydynia? We need to hear these too so that we don't get discouraged.
Reply from Jon Miles:
It's a good point. The trouble is, if people have successful treatment, they don't go searching the internet for solutions, so we don't hear their stories. There are some exceptions, such as Debra and Geri.
To give some balance, here are stories I heard after I had this problem (I had never heard of anyone with it before then):
So, five out of the six stories I heard among friends and acquaintances were successes. Any more from anyone else?

I just wanted to let you know that I have a friend who had coccydynia caused by an unknown factor. She had one shot of corticosteroid and has been completely pain free since then (about 3 years). I just had a shot this morning and hope to see good results soon.
More from Jon Miles:
A friend of my daughter's at university told her that she had had the problem for about a month, and it went away.
Another colleague of my wife's told me that if she rides a bike she gets pain that stops her sitting down for weeks.
A canoeing friend has a friend who damaged his coccyx. Apparently if you fall out of your kayak in white water, you're supposed to float feet first down the river avoiding the rocks until you can grab something. But your bottom hangs down, and his hit a submerged rock. He was in pain for some time, but my friend has now lost touch with him.
There's more of it about than you think!
