Welcome at HCM.

It looks that you are having coccydynia due to injury to your coccyx bone.You should do following to have relief-

-Take rest in prone position(over abdomen).

-You should avoid sitting or putting pressure over hip area.

-Do warm fomentation over hip.This can be done by sitting in a tub of warm water.

-Take a good analgesic like advil for relief.

Hope this all will help you.

With best wishes.
