Pain in soft tissue around coccyx area?

Alan -

I'm a 36 year old male who has had pain in tail bone area for 3 months now. I have been diagnosed with coccydynia but there are symptoms that I have not heard of anyone else having & this confuses me. I have pain that feels like spasms that run along side the tail bone & the pain will switch from one side of the tail bone to the other.

Has anyone else experienced this pain besides me???

I have had injections under x-ray that helped some but still have stabbing pains and spasms. My next step is surgery but I'm a little confused with the pain switching sides & spasms. If anyone has had similar pain please let me know. It will make me feel more comfortable that surgery is right thing to do.

Thank you,
