Coccydynia

(Tail Bone Pain)

Overview
This condition is an inflammation of the tip of the
tailbone, called the coccyx. It causes pain and
tenderness between the buttocks.


Causes
Coccydynia can be caused by sitting for extended
periods, childbirth, or an injury such as a fall. In
many cases it develops spontaneously - the cause
is unknown.


Symptoms
Symptoms can include sensitivity or an aching
sensation around the tailbone that is made worse
by sitting, shooting pain in the legs, pain during
bowel movements and pain during sexual
intercourse.


Treatment
Treatment can include a padded seat cushion,
medications, nerve blocks, sacral nerve stimulation,
or, in rare cases, surgery to shorten the coccyx.
