Hi, Tailbone pain, also called coccydynia or coccygodynia, usually goes away on its own within a few weeks or months. To lessen tailbone pain in the meantime, it might help to: Lean forward while sitting down. Sit on a doughnut-shaped pillow or wedge (V-shaped) cushion. Apply heat or ice to the affected area.

MRI to find out if fracture, degenerative changes or, in rare cases, a tumor. Kindly consult orthopedician....
