Last night I bent over and turned the wrong way and hurt my tailbone. Today the pain is going down my leg a little and feel worse when I sit and lay on my back. Earlier when I was laying on my back I felt a heated up feeling, is this normal for a strain and if isn’t a strain what could it be?
Do you think this will get better on its own?
i dont know but see a chiropractor before you try a doctor
This sounds like a pinched sciatic nerve. First, take OTC pain reliever at the recommended dose, and when something makes it flare up, stop doing that something, whether it’s a movement or a position you’re sitting or standing in.
It should get better on its own, but there are poses and stretches you can do to get some relief. See them here: https://www.healthline.com/health/back-pain/sciati…
If I’m wrong and it’s not your sciatic nerve, those poses and stretches shouldn’t do any harm. You would, of course, stop if something caused increased pain, like any sensible person, right?
