I have this constant pain in the bottom of my back where the back and crack meet. Everytime I sit, bend, or lie down it hurt immensely. Is it serious?

Most likely not: If the pain has been there for more than a few weeks then go see your doc. At your age is most likely muscular unless you recently had an injury or traumatic event. Most low back pain is self limiting and will improve with time. Physical therapy is a great first step. You doc can determine if any other workup needs to be done. ...Read more

Sometimes, when I sit down, my tailbone hurts a lot, and I feel a little "crack" in it. Is it normal or should I be concerned?

It will get better: Tailbone pain, or coccygodynia, is commonly caused by trauma, and its probably the hardest problem for me to treat personally. It's hard to access the area so there's little to do but that also means that even if there is a fracture or subluxation, usually we recommend patience and activity modification (stand more and use a cushion for sitting). No casts, no injections, maybe an antiinflammatory. ...Read more
