I am a 40 year old female who just was diagnosed with coccydynia. I have been having pain in my tailbone since October 2001. My family physician had me see a physical therapist which did not help.
The pain is so intense that I am finding it difficult to work at my desk job. The neurosurgeon did not seem to be sympathetic when I told him that I find it hard to drive an hour and a half to work each way and then sit at my desk all day. I am considering going sick from work.
The doctor has suggested that I see a pain management specialist. I need this pain to go away in order to function, it is controlling my life.
Any suggestions from yourself or anyone with this terrible condition?
