You have a cyst in your spinal cord ? You feel the pain in your anal region ? Any bowel issues? Do you sometimes lose control over your bowels too ? Does the pain radiate anywhere? Any pain in your lower back too?

He said it feels like something is wrong inside
Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 3 months ago

Yes it could be his coccyx . Its called coccydynia. It can take time unfortunately.

Besides lignocaine and naproxen ,he will benefit from few other measures;

Avoiding sotting for too long, if he has too then use special pillow to take his weight.

Avoid constipation as any straining would worsen the things for him.

Applying either heat or ice packs helps relieve the pain .

Steroid injections are a very effective option you can discuss with your doctor about.

Another option is TENS : Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator (TENS) units apply electric stimulation that interferes with the transmission of pain signals from the coccyx to the brain. These devices can be good option for patients who wish to keep their intake of medications to a minimum

hope it was helpful.

He can benefit from mild opioids like tramadol if simple pain relief doesnt help. But this would require script from your doctor.

The measures i mentioned above are very beneficial for this type of pain that we come across.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
