You must be suffering from coccydynia. Take anti-inflammatory as per physician or orthopaedician advice. You can consult physiotherapist to take ultrasound therapy. Ice pack application will also help to reduce pain.
Health Tips
Avoid sitting on hard surface. While sitting, use any soft cushion or ring cushion or U shaped cushion.
