Arthritis of the coccyx treated with steroid injections

Anonymous

I was diagnosed in December 1999 with arthritis of the coccyx, and like many other contributors to the site I bounced around to different doctors seeking help. I went to a pain management clinic in Florida where I received a series of three caudal steroid injections 2 weeks apart. I am now post 4 weeks since my last injection. I have noticed a marked improvement.

I hope and pray that this is a long term solution as I have suffered for 3 years. I actually retired early from my job in New York because the job required sitting most of the day. The pain was almost unbearable.

Good luck to all.
