I think I might have injured my tailbone (coccyx) by lying on a hard, wooden surface - I spend a lot of time lying down while talking on the phone!
I have a faint black & blue bruise at the top of my "backside" cleft, and it's pretty tender to the touch. It hurts to do sit-ups and to even lie down on it (not a lot of pain - more like an ache and a sort of "burning" feeling at times). Also, it is uncomfortable when I sit for awhile (sort of a "hemorrhoid"? feeling - not really sure what they feel like!). I've noticed slight bruising in that area before, but never really noticed the aching before.
While I'm waiting for it to heal, is it ok to exercise (ex: dancing? running?)? Will this jar the bones even further? (Bike-riding is definitely out for now -
Will I have to go to PT for this?
Thanks for any help!
