Constant pain in coccyx. Suffering from constipation with bloody bowel movement due to pregnancy. Unable to get up from chair.

I have had pain in my coccyx for over a year now. Shortly after I noticed the pain I became pregnant and the doctors insisted it was due to my pregnancy. I also have a very large hard lump in my butt crack area that I recently found out not everybody has. I am also suffering from constipation with bloody bowl movements that my doctor said is most likely due to my pregnancy.(I had a c-section.) My pain is constant and most noticed from sitting and almost unable to get back up from a chair. It sometimes feels like its a burning pain.

The most common causes for pain and bump under tailbone are
Pilonidal cyst/abscess/ sinus
and coccydynia
While coccydynia is due to the pain and inflammation in tailbone,pilonidal cyst causes pain and discomfort when the cyst becomes infected and becomes abscess.
Chronic pilonidal abscess results in pain and drainage of fluids resulting in the formation of pilonidal sinus.
Consult your doctor for the examination and diagnosis of your problem.
Once the diagnosis is made,treatment becomes easy.
