Coccydynia, which may also be referred to as Coccygeal pain or Tailbone pain, describes a pattern of symptoms that cause persistent or intermittent pain in and around the coccyx (tailbone) area.

The pain can vary from a sharp pain to mild discomfort in the area.

  • Dull with occasional sharp pains
