Pain in my back on tailbone, buttocks and numbness in left leg

For three week now I have had problems with my lower back onthe middle of my tailbone. There is some pain that goes across my left buttocks from my spine to the middle of my buttocks that hurts. There is also numbness down the left side of my left leg about 5 inches wide from my hip to my knee that comes and goes but happens most when I am sitting or lay on my left side when sleeping. What is the problem with me?

I would suggest to request an MRI of your lumbar and sacral area. I have had a rupture at L5-S1 and bulge at L4-5 and these symptoms you describe are fiitting to an S!/ sciatic nerve compression...
