Severe pain from tailbone radiating to stomach resulting in lightheadedness, dizziness, nausea, cold sweats. What is the cause?

For the Past month maybe a little longer i have been getting a very bad pain from my tailbone all the way to the front of my stomach . I usually take ib profin and that eventually helps. But the pain gets so bad that i get light headed, dizzy, natious, clod sweats. When im at work i usually just wait for ib profin to kick in but at home i will put a hot heating pad on and fall asleep with the ib profin. I get it alot aroun 3am and it will last all morning on and off until about noon. The past two days its not going away. what can it possibly be and what can help take it away.

General Surgeon 's  Response
Hello!
Your pain might be caused by some disease of your backbone or something in lower abdomen area.
If it responses for ibuprofen, most likely you are suffering from some inflammation process of your tail bone area. It can be inflammation of coccyx caused by some injury or overload, sciatic nerve irritation (this pain most likely radiates to leg) or it can be pilonidal cyst. Any bone/muscles/spinal cord disorders in this area including sciatic nerve irritation and coccyx disorder may be ruled out by MRI of this region.
Pilonidal cyst is mostly located at the cleavage between the buttocks. It appears when a hair grows under the skin in this place. It causes inflammation process in this place, and it creates a cyst. It can give no symptoms when no inflammation is present, but it can also be very painful when pus appears (this can be associated with fever and cold sweats). Diagnose is very simple, but you should visit surgeon to rule it out.
Hope this will help
