The Coccyx Hurts When I Wake Up?
I was sleeping after I woke up suddenly, my tailbone was aching / aching. as I recall, when I slept I stretched out so that my bones sounded “kretek” while sleeping. waking up, my tailbone for hunchback aches, even to stand up after sitting also feels pain. I am still in senior high school.
Thank you for the question.
Sudden pain in the coccyx may indicate the following conditions:
Lack of vitamins or minerals
Spinal cord disorders, for example due to injury, nucleus pulposus herniation, an infection or tumor around the spine, diabetes, multiple sclerosis
Skin or muscle disorders around the coccyx, for example due to shingles, folliculitis, fibromyalgia, muscle cramps, sexually transmitted infections
Disorders of internal organs around the coccyx, for example due to hemorrhoids, anal fissures, proctitis, anal abscesses, pre menstrual syndrome, endometriosis, recurrent prolapse
Psychological disorders, and so on
Need to be clarified, how great pain do you feel? Does it limit your daily activities? Do you have bowel movements, weakness or numbness in your lower limbs, or other more severe complaints?
If indeed the pain that appears is very great, you should immediately consult a doctor or neurologist. Depending on the cause, your doctor may give you a different treatment later. For some cases, your doctor may direct you to undergo further tests, such as x-rays, anuscopy, CT scans, and so on.
In the meantime, so that the pain you feel improves, try soaking in a lot of warm water, taking the medicine for paracetamol, do not wear clothes that are too tight, drink more water, eat more vitamins and neurotropic minerals (especially vitamin B, calcium, potassium , and magnesium), rest more, do not like to hold bowel movements or small, and do not do anal sex, especially with partners whose sexual history is unclear.
Hope this helps ...
