Reffered pain in coccyx

Hello, I am completley new to this and would like some help and advice. I had a disc removed about 11 years ago and had problems ever since. I have been diagnosed with DDD. A couple of weeks ago I started to get pain in my coccyx which my doctor thinks could be a referred pain caused by another disc herniating. Has anyone else had this sort of thing happen to them?


  • can be referring from S1.

    I have had coccyx pain for years and have lots of issues with S1. I feel for you!!!
    Heat is my favourite, I hope it helps you too.
  • Mine is referred from L5/S1, and the pain can be unbearable at times. I, too, have DDD. I also get spasms that radiate along it that feel almost like they're inside my rectum....I've had a rude awakening at night several times, and it is probably the worst pain I've ever felt.

    I, too, like heat. If it is nerve related, ice will irritate the heck out of it. Take care and good luck.
