Stingy pain near tailbone. History of road accident, neck sprain, lower backpain. Need opinion

I was in an RTA in November and experienced neck sprain and whiplash and had lower back pain. It's now April and I can bend forward with flat back but if I tilt my head forward I get an almost stingy pain near my tail bone. The pain has recently spread also to my lower back and it is causing me extreme discomfort. I have Been prescribed pain killers from my GP but they aren't helping very much. I'm wondering if there's anything else it could be possibly? I can still touch the ground with legs straight etc however i am I gymnast so i have normal flexibility for an 18 year old girl but not he same flexibility as before the accident.

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain that you are having is likely to be due to the injury that you have suffered. The main treatment is a combination of pain killers with muscle relaxants. Mild physiotherapy exercises will also help in bringing back the tone.
