Lower back pain

About 10 years ago I fell from a high shelf and landed on my butt. It took a month for me to be able to sit comfortable. The pain in my tailbone went away. Now here lately I have pain right in my back above the tailbone and then I get pain that radiates down the back of my thighs and it's painful to stand. When I bend over I get pain in my back and the pain running down the back of my thighs. Could this be a pinch nerve, sciatic pain.

Hello and welcome.

I am sorry for your pain. Please read through the Tip at the top of this WebMD Back Pain Community that lists recommended steps for getting back pain diagnosed and treated. We are not doctors and it is both impossible and against the rules in all WebMD communities to provide any type of diagnosis or medical advice.

You will need to see your doctor to start, then a spine specialist for evaluation and a treatment plan. When you read through that Tip, you will find links to websites that have good information about spinal problems and solutions so you can do research.

I pray you can get answers and relief soon.
