HELP PLEASE ON WHAT I SHOULD DO

SO IN FEBRUARY I CAME OFF MY HORSE BAD AND I BROKE MY COCCYX BONE, HAD MANY PROBLEMS ALONG THE WAY BUT NOW IT HAS EVER BEEN SO BAD, THE PAIN IS GETTING UNBEARABLE!! HERE ARE SOME OF MY SYMPTOMS I AM EXPERIENCING.

PAIN IS VERY BAD WHEN SITTING DOWN.
PAIN WHEN I TOUCH THE BONE OR SIT ANYWHERE OR LEAN NEAR THE BONE, LEAN FORWARD DOES NOT HELP THE SITUATION.
PAIN VERY SORE WHEN I STAND UP FROM SITTING OR LYING DOWN, GO STIFF.
WHEN ON THE TOILET VERY SORE.
PAIN IN MY BUM GOES NUMB IF I AM SAT DOWN FOR A PERIOD OF TIME, I GET UP REGULARLY TO EASE PAIN, THIS DOESN'T WORK, SOMETIMES CAN BE A VERY WEIRD FEELING LIKE TODAY LEGS HAVE GONE NUMB, AND I HAVE A BURNING FEELING IN MY LEGS OR IT CAN THE COMPLETE OPPOSITE AND THEY CAN FEEL LIKE ICE. KEEP GETTING PINS AND NEEDLES QUITE REGULARLY.
CANNOT STRETCH MY BACK FORWARD AS THIS DOES NOT HELP THE PAIN.
TRYING TO SLEEP IS VERY HARD FOR ME CANNOT GET COMFY SO EACH MORNING THE PAIN IS WORSE AND I AM FEELING VERY SICK.
MY BACK FEELS AS THOUGH IT IS GETTING WORSE INSTEAD OF BETTER.
HAVING A HOT WATER BOTTLE DOES NOT HELP.
HAD A PHYSIO FOR MY BACK AND SHE DID NOT WANT TO TOUCH THE AREA AS IT WAS BAD AND SHE DID NOT WANT TO MAKE WORSE.
WHEN BENDING OVER A VERY SUDDEN SHOOTING SHARP PAIN UP MY BACK AND DOWN MY LEGS, THIS IS A VERY SHARP PAIN AND MAKES ME SHOUT WHEN IT HAPPENS STILL NOW CANNOT BEND OVER THAT MUCH.
I THINK THE WAY THE BONE LIES HAS CHANGED DOES NOT FEEL HOW IT USED TO.
FEELS LIKE I HAVE DEEP HEAT ON WHEN I AM SAT FOR A WHILE.
ON DAY 1 OF TIME OF THE MONTH I DO NOT EVEN WANT TO MOVE THE PAIN IS SO BAD STRUGGLE TO WALK ON TOP OF ALL THE OTHER PAIN.

DUE TO ALL THIS, I HAVE MISSED HORSE SHOWS, CANNOT RIDE NOW DUE TO PAIN BEING SO BAD, THIS IS REALLY ANNOYING FOR ME AS I WANT TO BE SHOWING THE HORSES!!

I JUST FEEL ILL AND WANT A SOLUTION FOR MY BACK TO FIXED AS I ONLY 2O DIDN'T WANT TO HAVE THESE PAINS AT MY AGE!! IF I WOULD'VE COME OFF MY HORSES I WOULDN'T HAVE THESE PROBLEMS BUT IT WAS WRONG PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME

THANK YOU

Hi!
I am sorry to hear about your medical problems.  You could try cortisone shots, lumbosacral corsets, pain killers, epidurals, physiotherapy, sitting on padded seats or air tubes etc. You may need surgery to remove the coccyx if all conservative methods fail.
Please consult your spine specialist regarding this. You may need a MRI of the lower spine. Hope this helps. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
