Hypermobility of the coccyx

My coccyx pain started without trauma and disturbed me in all sitting positions. I had seen many doctors in a period of couple of months due to the excruciating pain in my coccyx, but no one was able to find a cure. I did a lot of research online and not too many doctors are specialized in this subject.

I believe Dr Elif Gurkan is the only one in Turkey (see Doctors and specialists in Turkey). I feel extremely lucky to have met her. She found a hypermobility of the coccyx bones with special x-rays. She made an injection in my coccyx area under imaging and released me from my pain immediately. I can't thank her enough. I will be forever grateful to her.

Note from Jon Miles:

I emailed more than a year after this story was posted, to ask for an update, as the long-term outcome of treatment is of great interest. In this case I did not get a reply.
