Pain in tail bone after flying in an aircraft, difficulty sitting. Treatment options?

Just wanting to know what to do regarding tailbone pain. I just got home yesterday after 2 days of flights. Most of that time i spent crying because of the pain from sitting. I have brought up the tail bone pain and dr is dismissive. What should i do to get this addressed or how can i get pain to stop? This has been going on since 2011 and has gotten increasingly worse

Thank you for posting your query.

You could try analgesics such as ibuprofen or diclofenac for pain relief. It would work in your case, and you would feel better in a few days.

If case pain persists, doing a scan of the affected area would help.

Best wishes,
