Hi Anon,

Coccydynia is pain in your tail bone or coccyx area. 

This condition is caused by an injury or stress that affects the tailbone, as well as the muscles and nerves surrounding it. Examples include:

  • Fall or trauma
  • Pressure and strain, as during childbirth
  • Prolonged sitting on hard surfaces
  • Spinal cyst or tumor
  • Dislocation from injury orobesity, which can cause bones to shift
  • Repeated stress (eg, horseback riding, bicycling, motorcycle riding)

Hope you feel better soon!
