Coccyx pain generally and worse in pregnancy

Rebecca, England - rhewitson@uclan.ac.uk

Hi

I fractured my coccyx in a fall in 1996. It's caused pretty much constant pain since then especially after sitting for some time, unsurprisingly.

I gave birth to my first child 3 1/2 years ago and that involved having to flip over halfway through labour because of the pain. I'm now 4 1/2 months pregnant and am experiencing great pain around my coccyx.

I have a two part query if anyone can help - is this anything to do with having given birth before; and is it likely that I'll I ever be pain free??!!
