Severe pain in lower back when applying pressure, on walking. How to reduce pain?

Hi i am a female in the early twenties and I suddenly have this acute pain in my lower back near the spinal area at waist just above the tail bone area. I have not had any history for back problems so this is very sudden. I can t actually walk with the pain and it feels like whenever I actively apply any pressure or squeeze the muscles in the area especially when walking,the pain gets really bad.

Thanks for being with HCM.

Sudden Onset of back pain In 20 years female could be due to
1- Coccydynia
2- Just a muscular back pain
3- Mechanical back pain
4- Vit-D deficiency
5- Prolapse intervertebral disc (less like in your case) in that generally patient has radiating pain in lower limb/s
Due you have any sudden jerky movement while jimmying or have suddenly lift any heavy things?
I would suggest to take an opinion of an Orthopedician for better clinical correlation and
to get a X-ray sacrococcyx region and Vit-D levels.

For pain relief you can apply hot fomentation and nise gel locally and mild anti inflammatory like Aceclofenac and paracetamol.

For more queries you can write to us.

Wish you good health.
