PCOS, have tailbone pain while sitting, change of position with numbness in thigh. Related?

I work in an office and spend long periods of time sitting and for the last 2 & 1/2 weeks my tailbone hurts while sitting, going from a seated position to a standing position (and vice versa) and my left thigh goes numb. I have not fallen or sustained any other injury to the area. I have PCOS and at first thought it might be radiated pain, but it s not that. Should I be visiting a doctor about this or is it a case of not getting up enough?

Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Numbness could mean possible pressure on the nerve - locally or from Lumbar Spine.

The best approach will be to see a neurologist - to see whether it is a nerve or root of the nerve / what is the possible cause and so on.
Considering your young age, some minor deformity or defect in the spine could be causative. MRI of the spine may be necessary.
After all, we have to sit long hours - even if not working.... Better to be sure than be guessing.
It sounds like a simple problem, amenable for an easy solution - but a proper diagnosis is a must and the neurologist will help.

Take care
Wishing you speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
