Hi, i fell on my tailbone 3 days ago and im in extreme pain. Out of no where my left leg including my butt is numb. What should i do?
I'm sorry about your fall. It is possible your fall may have caused a mild slippage of a vertebral disk. The disk may be impinging on your spinal cord and that is why you are feeling pain in your left leg. It is important to be examined by a doctor. Your doctor may elect to do a CT scan or MRI to better visualize the injury.
