Rights brief history..and apologies if anything is a bit too grafic... I'm after opinions/other experiences that sound the same..
Beginning of December I started to feel an burning ache in my anus mainly but it spreads around that whole area from time to time.. It got progressively worse so I went to the docs. As I cycle a fair bit they suggested it was a bruised coccyx and I went on my way with instructions for ibrufen and to use a coccyx pillow. Sitting certainly seems to make it worse...
I've been back and forth to the docs since.. I have good days and bad.. Best seems to be when I'm off work over weekends and there is no sitting involved.. Worst is after a long day at work even if I avoid too much sitting. Or an hour long car journey.
I've had numerous docs check me over... No external pain but I jump when they push about inside! All have said coccyx... Even the colonial rectal guy...
He's referred me for a camera up there "just to be sure".... But expects to see nothing.
I've had physio... But they just found a stiff area around my sacroiliac joint/first vertebrae... Which has since cleared.
I've had chiropractor have a go.. But she said after a few mobilisation attempts that there was nothing more to try.
The pain gets better when I lay face down... And overnight. Gets worse through the day.
Only other symptom is my stools are narrower... Kind of squashed. Doc said its due the muscles in the area being in spasm.
Anyway... Anyone else suffered anal pain only from a coccyx injury... And did it last so long?
