Back pain

Anyone any advice?

I am 33 and my back ( v low down) has gone into complete spasm twice. Once about 2 yeaRs ago and the other about. 8 years ago .

The thing is that after I had dd almost 4 years ago the bone at the base of my spine ( coccyx?) hurt like fuck but calmed down. In the last 6 months though it's horrible and is mostly worse if I'm sitting and then stand up, I have to psych myself up to move because I know it's going to hurt.

I spoke to the doctor who gave me naproxen and sent me on my way.

Anyone know how I can help pain go rather than masking it iyswim?

Oh sweetheart, that is awful. I had the same thing after my DD's birth. My doc gave me ibuprofen. 8 years later I slipped on ice and landed on my coccyx. By the next day I was crawling on all fours. I saw a chiropractor, who manipulated my bones, and gave an electronic massage, over six sessions. I was pain free after that, and stood up properly, and straight for the first time since my DD's birth. I had a forceps delivery and it had pulled my pelvis out of alignment. The chiropractor said it had happened to his wife with all five of their children. I hope you get some help soon. Osteopaths offer similar treatment, you have to pay, but it is so worth it to be pain free. The treatments did not hurt at all and it's important to relax as much as you can. Good luck.

I'd see a chiropractor to get yourself aligned correctly!

Oesteopath

Just had the worst bought of sciatica ever and it's pretty much gone after 2 sessions

Physio and acupuncture didn't do anything
