Pain in upper left side tailbone. Cause & shall i take aspirin / tylenol?

After 1 1/2 hours shoveling topsoil into my garden wheelbarrow, the upper left side of my tailbone is aching. What is the most likely cause, and what is the recommended abatement? I am very physically fit, and was intending to just tough this out (I m scheduled for a riding lesson tomorrow). I haven t taken anything yet, but was wondering whether to take aspirin/ tylenol before sleeping?
