Bruise on tail bone, pain on sitting, walking, back pain. Family history of ankylosing spondylitis. Treatment?

I have an unexplained bruise on tail bone and it hurts to sit and walk, I also have a lot of lower back pain that has been a problem since I was a child. My mother has Ankylosing spondylitis and I have a lot of symptoms that she has but I have been tested for it a few years ago and it came back negative. Could that have been an error and I have it to?

THanks for posting your query

You are suffering from coccydynia.

If stiffness present in your lower back, you need xray of lumbo-sacral & coccygeal region.

Meanwhile you have to take sitz bath & sit on soft cushion.
