Bowel issues with coccyx pain

I don't know where to begin, other than I have had back and tailbone pain since end of August. I have been going to a chiropractor since mid September. He has helped me a great deal. The tailbone pain is pretty much gone. The low back pain and tailbone pain areas are still sensitive, but better.

I have had bowel issues and pelvic pain issues with this. The chiropractor said this can all come from the nerves. I have had some improvement in those areas but they aren't gone either yet. My chiro said it will take time.

My email is to communicate with other tailbone sufferers to see if they have these type of issues, as I never see anyone else complain of these issues. In the beginning I had feelings of constantly having to have bowel movements. This has gotten better. I did go see my doctor about this and because I have never had a colonoscopy they advised that I have one, but due to health insurance issues right now I have to put that off. So I just wanted to know if anyone else has had these problems from tailbone pain.
