Hi All, I'm a new member and would welcome feedback. I suffer from severe coccydynia pain (this pain emanates from the coccyx). It is very deliberating as I can only sit for a short periods of time which eliminates social life severely. The pain is quite unbearable only way I can describe the pain is one feels as if they are sitting on red hot coals which spreads across my lower region. I have seen a Consultant specialist who performed two manipulation steroid injections which, unfortunately, haven't helped. The only painkiller I take is Co-codamol/Codeine for my arthritis but my doctor won't prescribe a stronger painkiller only to attend pain management which I have reservations about. I have read that Lidocaine patches may help! I am at a point where I will try anything. Any suggestions please.
