I felt a sharp pain into my anus after doing some physical therapy for bulging discs

Hi, I m a 26 year old male. Was diagnosed with bulging discs at l4/l5/s1. At times I have had severe pain in lower back radiating into my hip, all the way down to my big toe. Recently, due to physical therapy, I have been getting better. So because I ve been getting better, I ve started to more exercises so I can get back into some kind of shape. But about a week ago, after doing sit-ups I felt a sharp pain from what felt like my tailbone into my anus. Since then it hurts to sit or to do certain movements . At times I feel pressure in my anus as well. Could this new pain be caused from further bulging of my discs or is it something else?

thanks for choosing health care magic.It seems that the pain may from some pressure or injury to tail bone.Avoid sitting on hard surface.Apply some local analgesics for pain.Avoid seating for long time and on floor.You can continue your routine but take care.This should be fine if not see a orthopedic surgeon.
