Trigger finger

From last 1 week, I'm observing my left-hand ring finger is triggering (stuck 1sec & release) with bit pain. I search about this over the internet & find out it's called as "Trigger Finger". There is no swelling on my finger. It's looking normal. As far as I can remember it has also not hit by anything. Mostly, I feel this "triggering" effect more when I wake up from bed in morning. But, after few minutes doing some exercise in the gym, it'll get almost normal with a very few triggering feeling. Same thing , I've also noticed after biking for 45mins(my home - work location). Currently, I'm doing some finger stretching exercise which got to know from the Internet. After doing that also I feel very much relaxed. Till now don't know what could be the cause. But, I need some professional advice to solve it.

Extreme pain in tail bone

My dad has been in pain for about more than a month now. This pain is probably due to trauma. He had fallen twice a couple of years ago and hit his tail bone both times. He has been on medication but that doesnt seem to work. Is surgery the only solution? And is alcohol consumption related to it?
