Hello and welcome to HCM

Is the swelling around the coccyx painful, is the swelling mobile or fixed to underlying structures?
Do you any associated tingling or altered sensation in your lower limb?

Since, you are suffering from fibromyalgia it could be due to fibromyalgia.
You need to get a MRI done to know the origin of the swelling.
It could be a bony swelling or soft tissue swelling.

Thanks and take care
