Happy New Year everyone! Let's hope for a healthier & happier one with a bit less pain please would be good!
I know I don't post on here often but after not sleeping for the last 3 nights due to increased pain due to coccydynia I thought I might surface again and ask for some insight from you.
Some of you may remember that I have chronic severe pain for approximately 23yrs or so after 17 operations & procedures done on my back so far! My saviour has been my neurologist & my implant of a neuromed stimulator back in 1995. Having been diagnosed & living with Menieres disease since 2008 as well as slowly losing my mobility it's been a frustrating; annoying; b***dy painful; drugged up; thought provoking; difficult on times, happy in others as well as desperate and depressing and; not to mention unbalanced and scary situations at various different stages. But now I have coccydynia to add to everything else.
So, I was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with coccydynia, how long have you had it for, what helps to relieve some of the symptoms and is there anything I can do to help it?
My GP is brilliant but won't touch or do anything with my back due to the electrodes, internal battery and various other different items in my back and I can't fault them in their support & care of my conditions.
So, if any of you do have any suggestions or helpful advice about coccydynia I would really appreciate it. I've had it for the last 3 months now and it's driving me nuts at the moment due to the extra pain.
Anyway, thanks for reading this and look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks in advance.
