The pain is terrible

Mrs Bailey -

I fractured my coccyx bone about 3 years ago. The pain is terrible when lying down in bed, also when walking it cripples you. It feels as if everything goes stiff in bottom of spine on getting out of bed. In the morning I have to shuffle around until the pain eases. The pain is terrible. It has also started to affect my right leg when lying down in bed.

Could you give me any advice?

Thank you

Mrs Bailey
