Hello!

My name is Dr. Aida and I am glad to attend you on Healthcaremagic!

Your symptoms could be related to coccygodynia. For this reason, I would recommend performing a dynamic X ray of the coccygeal bone and a CT scan or MRI of this region.
If the diagnosis is confirmed, I would recommend discussing with a spinal surgeon on the possibility of surgery.
Meanwhile, I recommend avoiding prolonged sitting position and taking NSAI (ibuprofen, naproxen, etc..).
Hope you will find this answer helpful!
Best regards!
