Report: Coccyx pain / coccygodynia
In March 2018, I noticed that my coccyx, the lowest bony end of the spine, hurt when pressed while sitting in a chair. As the days passed, the pain got worse and lasted for 8 weeks. Without pressure, the pain was barely present, so the swelling / inflammation was not very strong. I had never had this symptom before.
A few weeks ago, I was at a training course where we spent many hours sitting on hard wooden chairs. We assumed that it might have something to do with that, because another participant in the seminar had also developed coccyx pain the same time – an interesting coincidence. But why should the pain begin weeks later? And why continue for months? In fact, a few weeks later, I was back at the same place with the same load while sitting. The coccyx still ached slightly, but was not getting worse by the renewed long sitting. Also at later events at the same place in the course of the year there was no more pain. A cause of injury / overload can therefore be ruled out.
The “tail”-bone belongs to the new mesoderm and forms the transition to the tail in the animal kingdom – thus enabling the lifting and moving of the tail – for communication and balance purposes. The conflict content therefore has amongst other things to do with “not being able to raise the tail”, i.e to show “here I am, that is my position / opinion”.
Also in humans, the tailbone reacts with this theme, even though its original function is no longer in use because of the lack of a tail (there are other tissues in our body, such as the former thyroid ducts, gill ducts, appendix, …, which are remnants and no longer have a meaningful function, but still react with changes and symptoms in the context of their special programs).
Shortly before the onset of pain, I therefore must have been able to successfully express my opinion / feelings / thoughts to the outside, and “no longer have to duck / hide / tuck my tail”. Due to the duration of the symptoms, I had not been successful in that context for a long time. The intensity of the conflict-active phase was probably never very high, but present for a long time.
What happened? During the week when I first noticed the pain, my video series “Disease Is Different” was almost finished and I had started the last big feedback session. I also asked people unfamiliar with the 5BN for their opinions.
Since I first discovered the 5BN, I have always had to be careful with whom I share that topic, so as not to be condemned on the basis of this view. Unfortunately, past attempts to promulgate the New Medicine have often been dogmatic, even fanatic, or overly generalized and flawed. Any current enthusiasm for the 5BN automatically associates you with these past failures to communicate.
Thus, I have previously only told a few select people about this topic, but often have felt: “I would like to tell this person about the 5BN so as to help him, but it cannot! I have to hide my knowledge”. While I can not recall a particular dramatic trigger, I am aware of many of those situations where I was unable to mention my knowledge of the 5BN.
This secrecy has come to an end with the finishing of my new video series: I made my position publicly clear and also showed how I came to this point of view. It is much easier for me now to give someone in distress the video series, and offer to speak with him about his symptoms. In biological terms: “I am able to raise my tail again”.
When the pain disappeared after 8 weeks, the symptom did not return.
