I’m not sure if it’s from the running, but you never know.  I run 3-5 miles each day, and when I started out, my hips would hurt really bad.  I took a few days off, switching off ice and heat, took advil, and stretched every day.  It never hurt when I ran, only when I would recover from each run. 

Hopefully, it’s something like that – try those out and see if it helps. 

EDIT:  In regards to the treadmill being the cause, I would think that would help instead of hurt – why not try a different cardio machine for a little?

You say that it’s a pain in your foot and your tailbone – have you considered changing shoes? If you’re working out at a gym they could probably also give good advice on what other excercises to do while you recover.

Good luck with the running – hope it gets better soon! 🙂

It may not technically be your “tailbone” but pain in your sacrum, which is the lowest portion of your spine. I sometimes get pain here also that can feel kind of like a pinching nerve pain. The sacrum can sometime become misaligned like any portion of your spine. Have you ever seen a chiropractor? Personally, my chiropractor really helps with a lot of my aches and pains. It can be a little scary at first, but I would totally recommend it!

Hm. Well I’m glad you’re feeling better, but (to my knowledge) the only way you could have injured your coccyx (tailbone) would be from falling or bumping into something, since there is really only bone in that area and no other structures. If your pain comes back, I would definitely consider seeing your chiropractor again.

MacFaniam24: Listen, Do power yoga for the total body. You can get the DVD online. If you work your flexibility through that, no tailbone pain is gonna ever stay there.
