Hi there. I am a 34 year old mother of 2. I am a nurse although I don't do the physical stuff anymore as I am in management. I work with people who have intellectual disability and about 18 months ago I was assaulted and fell back on my bum. I don't remember having a pain in my coccyx at the time. I have a miscarriage about 3 weeks later so same took the emphasis off the assault.

In the last 3-4 months I have terrible pain when sitting on anything remotely hard, pain all in coccyx area. Doctor casually said there is no treatment. I don't believe this. I probably could do with losing weight too and exercising more. Both children were born by C Section.

Please help. My quality of life is reduced and I feel like an old woman.
