Doctors failing to order Xray or MRI images despite years of tailbone pain

It is a shame when people are left suffering in pain for years without the doctor ever even getting imaging studies to look at the painful area.

For tailbone pain (coccyx pain), it is unfortunately very common that people suffer for years without their doctors getting any imaging test to look at the painful area.

Typically these medical imaging tests include x-rays and MRI.

The images help reveal the cause of pain: in some cases it is cancer, in other cases it’s excessive mobility, in other cases it’s a bone spur, in other cases it’s arthritis, etc.

The treatment for each of these would be different.
