Have constant pain in tailbone area, legs hurt. What are treatment options?

I have constant pain in my tailbone area, sometimes when I walk it gets worse, my legs both hurt, at nights the pain is worst because my body is relaxed. This has been going on for more than 8 years, I have done a ecg and I am told my nerves are fine I am 51 and would like to know what to do. I fell and landed on my stomach yesterday I am getting the odd sharpe pain in my back but that is nothing new I know saciata is one of things I have which start in one leg but now its both legs and all this pain is getting to be much. This is my 4 week on pain from the waist down 24/7. Any ideas

Hi, as you are having the problem for the past 8 years and you are 51 years old, you definitely need to undergo investigations for your lumbar sacral spine and pelvis (preferably MRI scan). You need an orthopedic consultation and thorough evaluation as there is no room for 'wait and watch" policy in your case. Hope your problem gets solved. God bless
