Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the tailbone is commonly seen due to coccydynia. An MRI of the sacral vertebrae will help in ruling out the inflammation or any injury to the area. Pain killers and hot fomentation usually help in relieving the symptoms.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
