Hi, I have pains in my lower back most of the time and recently it has become much worse. I had a swelling on my tail bone scanned and was told it was just fluid. Does anyone know if it could be because of the damaged connective tissue that my back is particularly delicate? As soon as I try to use it , it's is so sore and I have shooting pains. A lot of the time I have stomach pains with it and not sure if it's referred pain. Can I get any help through rheumatologist ? Could I get referred for physio if I rang and told them what was happening? Not sure whether to go to Dr or physio? Would be grateful for any advice or similar experience.
