Tail bone pain

03/18/2008

Question:

Hi, I have been experiencing a lot of pain at my lower back area (tail bone) especially when I am sitting down and getting up. Also during the night when I sleep it is very uncomfortable, when I touch the area it feels tender. I had C-section a year ago for my daughter, and ever since I`ve had this pain on and off but now it is constantly. Please help.
