Pain in the tailbone

My wife is suffering from pain in the tailbone or bone near that area. The pain is severe in the morning. Now the left leg is also paining some times. This problem is observed after pregnancy and it was forceps pregnancy. During pregnancy an injection was given to reduce the delivery. Now, she is mother of a 10 month baby.

Hello, it is called Coccydynia,,, is often caused by an injury, but it may occur seemingly spontaneously. There are many causes of tailbone pain that can mimic coccydynia, including sciatica, infection (including shingles of the buttocks), pilonidal cysts, sacroiliitis, and fractured bone (broken tailbone or tailbone fracture). Please consult orthopedician for further examination and treatment..
