Thanks for your query.
I have gone through your query and understand your concern. You are having coccyxdynia. Treatment of it is hot sits bath. The affected part is hot fomented by sitting in a tub full of lukewarm water. You should avoid sitting on hard objects. Use soft objects for sitting. Avoid long and continuous sitting. You can further investigate by MRI of the region. Hope your query get answered. Wishing you a good health. Take care.
