For the last year I have had nauseating pain around my coccyx when I get up from sitting in any chair. I had physio and was diagnosed with degenerative tendinopathy, as I also get some pain in my right hip but the pilates exercises ended up giving me nerve pain in my right leg to the point where I could barely walk, and made no difference to the coccyx pain. I have had an MRI which shows wear and tear of my facet joints and recommends pilates!
The only time I don't have pain is when I'm laid down flat. I ache at night and it hurts to lie on my right side.
I had tramadol and was very ill with it and it didn't touch the pain, so am just taking paracetamol, which also does nothing for the pain. I have discussed the possibility of it being menopausal tendonitis (I am 48) and will be trying HRT in the new year. Does anyone have any experience of my particular pain?
