hi,i have a lot of pain right at the bottom of my spine it hurts when i sit and i hurts when i stand up the pain is server pain killers dont help
How long has this been going on?

Did you injure yourself in any way?

Does the pain travel anywhere else, like into the buttocks or down the legs?

And when you are standing, or walking around, is the pain better?

walking is not very painfull standing after a few minutes it hurts but no where near as painfull as sitting or standing up


What you seem to be describing is possibly a condition called coccydynia:

Which is pain derived from the inflammation of the "tail bone", which can cause pain while sitting.

Read the link above and see if it matches what you are describing. Other potential causes for pain are lower lumbar disc degenerative disease. But as always, it helps to be evaluated in person, as if necessary, imaging can be obtained to help with the diagnosis.
