Could this tailbone pain be caused by gouty arthritis. X-ray negative. Have a ct scan scheduled. Had taken prednisone for a couple of weeks. Did not help. No bladder or GI problems. I am 5'10 am overweight at 240 . But active walk four to five times a week. No redness or swelling to tailbone. Just feels like I am sitting on a rock or a golf ball. Deep pain.
