Hello and Welcome to HCM,
Thanks for writing to us.
You are suffering from coccydynia- inflammation of the bony area (tailbone or coccyx)
Cure for your coccyx pain-
1.Use a well-padded seat when sitting and avoid long periods of sitting when possible.
2.Do sitz bath- take warm water in a tub and sit in this.It will relax the muscles around the coccyx.
3.Do exercises that will strengthen your tailbone's supporting muscles and stretch ligaments near the pain. Consult a physiotherapist for this. Therapists may perform a combination of:
Levator ani massage
and Levator ani stretching.
4.Correct your posture. Poor posture may be contributing to your tailbone pain
. Try to sit upright. If you get a sharp pain
when getting up from a sitting position, lean forward and arch your back before rising.
5.You can take anti -inflammatory drugs like Tablet Motrin
1 tablet as and when required ( do not repeat a dose before 6 hours) with food will help relieve the pain.

Hope this helps you.
