agonising pain around my cocyx
for no apparent reason yesterday I developed an agaonising pain around my cocyx. Sitting, standing, lying down are all painful, I can't win. If I get into a "comfortable" position I am terrified to move because I know its going to be extremely painful to do so. Anti inflammatories don't seem to be helping. I can't think of anything that might have brought it on and so suddenly. I am a female in my mid forties. HELP

Judith, it sounds like it might be due to inflammation, but if the pain is still there when you receive this reply, you should see your doctor A.S.AP. Good luck.
