What causes severe tailbone pain?

Just received my bloodwork results and I had a hgb of 6.9 and an hct of 24. I m an otherwise healthy 45 year old woman, and I do not have a heavy menstrual period at all, in fact just the opposite. I was suspecting uterine fibroids, as I suffer severe tailbone pain, yet I don t have any other symptoms of fibroids. Could fibroids and tailbone pain be related, and could I have fibroids that do NOT cause heavy menstrual cycles?

Hello,

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

Hemoglobin level is very low and it should be treated.
I suggest taking a iron and vitamin B supplement to relieve the symptoms.
The fibroids should be evaluated through a gynecological ultrasound.
Meanwhile,I suggest using anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the tailbone.

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Kind regards!
