Lower Back Pain?
I have had back pain for several years, especially around the lower bones. When I do bowing activities for only a short time but it is difficult to be upheld again, when forced to erect, I will fall down and in a few days I feel pain in the tailbone so I can’t sit, what should I do?

The condition you are experiencing is called coccigodynia in the medical language. Namely pain felt in the coccyx. this pain will be felt especially when sitting long, standing long, sitting from standing to position, when squatting and bending. Many things can be the cause, including:
1. Sit long on a hard surface.
2. The trauma of falling down causes the bone to break, crack or shift.
3. The habit of sitting or standing wrong or the wrong habit when lifting heavy loads.
4. Infection and tumors.
5. And others.
Try to take over-the-counter painkillers like Paracetamol. Then do a cold compress on the diseased tailbone. Also do warm compresses alternately with previous cold compresses. Cold compresses aim to help relieve pain while warm compresses can improve blood flow. use a donut-shaped pillow with a hole in the middle or a V-shaped pillow until the complaint improves.
If with the tips above complaints are still felt, have not improved, accompanied by weakness or tingling in the lower limbs, accompanied by complaints of not being able to hold bowel movements or urination or if pain is felt during sexual intercourse, you should immediately consult an orthopedic specialist . Later the doctor will conduct an examination, if needed you will undergo a supporting examination of the X-ray or MRI. The point is to find the cause. Later you will undergo treatment according to the cause. Treatment that is appropriate to the cause is the right treatment.
Thus hopefully useful.
