Low back pain

Barbara - BWJ5@AOL.COM

I've been reading info on your website over the past year concerning coccyx pain. I was told a year ago that I had broken my coccyx. I finally went to an orthopaedic surgeon today who said it was dislocated but that shouldn't cause low back pain. It should only hurt in the tailbone area. Not only does the tailbone still hurt, I have pain across my lower back that feels like it's very tight and after sitting a while, will feel stiff and ache. Has anyone else had problems with lower back pain along with the tailbone pain? He has recommended an injection to see if that will help. I'm also curious about experiences with this. Does it hurt? I would appreciate any suggestions, info, etc.

Thanks,

Barbara
