this actually has happened to me..and i went to the dr..it was my sciatic nerve. she said that i need put ice and heat to it. it will hurt your tailbone and it hurts bad. i just recently started to do floor exercises again. I also have my husband massage my lower back and tailbone. I bought a heating pad for it as well. i stretch daily also..my pain has subsided..i haven't had the pain in quite sometime. I actually had to do these constantly in my free time. it is time consuming doing the stretches, heating pad, ice, massages but in time it will go away. it took two months for mine to go away.

I also experience pain when laying flat on my back! But only recently - I used to cheer and used to do crunches all the time. But now stretching on my back hurts my tailbone. :( it's a bummer because there are some great stretches while on the back, but I usually wimp out due to the pain. I definitely know what you're talking about!

This is a new one for me, so I don't have any experience to share. It seems like putting down a lot of padding is defeating the concept of the floor exercise. Even though you feel a stronger burn when you push through the pain, I definitely don't think it's worth the risk of aggravating your tailbone issue and giving you a worse injury. Do you feel this pain if you do the exercises in your actual bed? I think it's best to stick with the ball workouts, and think about doing crunches with hand weights to challenge yourself a little more. Maybe once you build up your glutes, they'll be able to help cushion and protect that tailbone, but that's something that you and your doctor will have to figure out. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

does any one else deal with this and how do you manage it? i have found since i started really working out i cant do floor exercises that have me on my back. whenever i do something it feels like my tailbone is grinding on the floor and it causes a ton of pain. i have put down a ton of padding enough that i basically made a bed and it still hurts. i would like to do Pilates and crunches on the floor but i cant handle the pain. i do crunches on the ball but i feel the burn more when i do them on the floor. i have been to my doctor about this and she said i have a crack in my tailbone that never healed from childhood and that could be whats causing the pain. it doesn't bug me unless i do floor workouts or sit for too long on something hard. all she could tell me to do was either put a ton of padding down or avoid floor workouts. does anyone feel that when they work on the floor? how do you work around it?

Don't care so much about what people think about you. They are to busy caring too much about what you think about them.
